First printing of one of the heaviest hitters of Interior Design books, the enormous, lavishly illustrated “Decoration : Tradition et Renouveau” (Collection Connaissance des Arts) published in 1973 is without a doubt one of the most collectable of 1970’s design books.
This huge, prestigious, cloth-bound volume travels through some of the world’s most incredible domestic interiors of the period, including those of major architects, interior designers, fashion designers, art and antiquities collectors, and more, showcasing objets d’art, historical artifacts and furniture (from Pablo Picasso, Mies van der Rohe, Lucio Fontana, Nicola L, Cesar, Jean Dubuffet, Arman, Gae Aulenti, Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Enzo Mari, Pierre Paulin, Afra + Tobia Scarpa, Charles Eames, Joe Columbo, Verner Panton, Bruno Munari Afra Scarpa, Mario Bellini, Tom Wesselman, Sonia Delaunay, Man Ray) adorning decorated interiors ranging from “Tradition” (“a formula that allows one to integrate older items, furniture and artwork in a contemporary context”); “le Renouveau” (contemporary interiors of the 1970’s and “a section dedicated to design of the time offering a selection of the finest furniture, objects and accessories created by top designers”); and “l’Avant-garde” (displaying some of the most experimental, idiosyncratic, and forward-thinking interiors that bring together modern materiality, pop art and space design to create inspired interior living architectural spaces).
“How to reconcile antique furniture and contemporary structures? Can we adapt modern furniture within a traditionally inspired framework? This book, illustrated with beautiful photographs, mostly in color, reproducing the finest achievements of the great contemporary designers, responds to these questions.”
All texts in French.
A must-have for the interior design lover.

The International Design Yearbook 1985/86
Robert A.M. Stern (Ed.)
Edited by Robert A.M. Stern, one of the world’s leading exponents of the Post-Modern movement, “The International Design Yearbook 1985/86” was “the first volume of an important annual review of domestic design in an international context. It shows the best, the most characteristic and the most exciting recent designs in furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, glass and metalware. It illustrates the work not only of such leading figures as Rossi, Hollein, Venturi, Sottsass and Castiglioni, but of hundreds of other contemporary designers around the world, whose work is notable for its topicality and promise, or for its aesthetic or functional excellence.”
As well as contemporary design of the mid 1980’s, the annual “deals with the reproduction of classic designs by such masters as Eileen Gray, Hoffman, Mackintosh, Rietveld and Le Corbusier.” The annual also functioned as a guidebook to the featured designers and the respective companies, manufacturers and retailers of their designs. Biographies for all those designers featured are included, plus texts throughout.
This large book is richly illustrated with wonderful examples of the featured designers in their many forms via 520 illustrations, 382 in colour. Many works rarely (some possibly never) seen documented in any other book.
