Overview

Whoever said "Everything old is new again" could have been talking about French Pompadour Style. The flamboyant, opulent, refined aesthetic-so characteristic of the eighteenth century-has enjoyed a spectacular revival in recent years. In The New Eighteenth-Century Style, journalist Michele Lalande and photographer Gilles Trillard, both experts in the field of interior decor, survey 30 examples of this quintessential blending of exquisite detail and ostentatious affluence. From lush velvet upholstery to the emblematic use of turquoise with gold accents, these perfectly captured interiors beguile the reader with well-worn extravagance. In an era of "shabby chic" the more refined, more pristine accents of Pompadour may be just what the world of interior decor needs-and this beautiful book provides an indispensable guide.
