    Michele Lalande and Gilles Trillard-the author-photographer team that brought us The New Eighteenth-Century Style and The New French Decor-return with 29 all-new homes, decorated in the modernized, eclectic version of Pompadour decor that has become so popular in this young century. The resulting blend of ostentatious luxury and repurposed treasures, the natural and the manufactured, is a warm, lived-in style that perfectly embodies the comforts of home. Interest in this iconic French style of interior decoration was revived following the restoration of Madame Pompadour's apartments at Versailles early in the last decade. Characterized primarily by excess and opulence and often dismissed as gaudy at the expense of taste, traditional Pompadour style incorporates lush velvets, precious and semiprecious stones, gilding, and elaborate handcarving to dramatic effect. In its modern incarnation, these antique elements are allowed to show their age, tending more toward the shabby chic.A " Gilles Trillard's delightful photographs reveal interiors of breezy elegance, where Pop Art and industrial design mingle with patinaed highboys and carved candelabra; texts by Michele Lalande highlight the playful, surprising details that personalize these spaces. A perfect companion to the two previous volumes, Eighteenth-Century Spirit proves that the old has been made new once more-and it's here to stay.

    Quality, originality and daring - these three words sum up what 'Belgian' stands for overseas when we're talking about interior design. There are no stark or beige homes here, no minimalism. Here is an array of colours, rich fabrics, unusual yet always successful combinations of styles and periods; there is even a good dose of kitsch to be found - such as stuffed animals. Interiors included come from the likes of Geoffroy Van Hulle, Lionel Jadot, Gerald Watelet and Jean-Philippe Demeyer. The texts are concise, personal and informative, based on interviews with the people living in these homes.

    Artists Living with Art is full of fascinating and often surprising revelations about the artworks a select group of the world's most influential contemporary artists choose to collect and display in the intimacy of their own homes. (Just as Andy Warhol famously collected cookie jars, so do these 25 artists, all living in New York, collect art and in some cases, mundane objects they cherish as art.) The works they display reflect remarkably diverse, eclectic and often unexpected tastes. Many of these homes, some of which also function as studios, have never been seen and offer unique insight into each artists' personal life, creative process, and artistic practices, as well as what inspires them and who their friends are (many swap art with one another).Readers will learn about the pieces most treasured by each artist, as well as their favourite period in art (a surprising number have a preference for pre-twentieth-century art). Authors Stacey Goergen and Amanda Benchley gained unprecedented access into each home for the photography and interviews, and highly acclaimed photographer Oberto Gili was commissioned to shoot the these homes especially for the book. Intimacies from such artists as Cindy Sherman, Brice Marden, Eric Fishl, Michelle Oka Doner and Will Cotton are shared through the engaging, accessible text and gorgeous photography Featured Artists:
