Regency Redux: High Style Interiors


Eerdmans, Emily Evans

Cl. New York, 2008

Book ID: 78353

The classical elegance of the Regency period in England is considered one of the most sophisticated and refined moments in design history. Throughout the twentieth century, designers took elements of the Regency vocabulary and restyled them to meld with the reigning design aesthetic of the day to extraordinary effect. The book opens with an introduction to the original Regency period, which built its sophisticated aesthetic on the example of the Neoclassical style of Napoleons time. It then picks up with the Art Deco designs of Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann and Se et Mare in France.
