Book of the Month // Vincent Darré Surreal Interiors of Paris

You may remember back in September, Nicky joined a selected number of guests to take a private tour of Vincent Darré’s private home on rue Royale in Paris, the eccentric French dandy and acclaimed decorator.

This brnad new publication by Rizzoli New York offers a fanciful look into his unique universe of artful interiors.

Known for his dynamic personality and extravagant style, Vincent Darré ‘the enfant terrible of Paris’s design world’ presents a debut monograph brimming with his hallmark flamboyant whimsy, unrivalled imagination, and Gallic flair.As a fixture of the city’s nightlife scene and member of its exclusive artistic circles, Darré is arguably one of its most creative residents (prior to launching his decorating career, he held posts at top fashion houses) which comes through in his instantly recognisable interiors, think Surrealist furniture, dizzying patterns, and spirited colour combinations.

Boasting over 200 vibrantly coloured photographs, this exquisite hardback takes readers on a journey into Darré’s world of conversation starting spaces. From his signature furnishings, such as the Grenouille nightstand, and maximalist use of prints (cue the Little Prince Bedroom), to his expert use of vivid hues, he offers an intimate glimpse into the singular, utterly enthralling universe of one of the design world’s most eccentric, quirky, and celebrated members.

Written by Vincent Darré, Text by François Halard and Pierre Le-Tan, Foreword by Bernard-Henri Levy, Designed by Simon Liberati
