[French decorative style / Archive of design and decoration from the Baroque to the Modern movement] The elegance that is still a characteristic of French taste today has its roots in the prestigious artistic tradition of the Ancien Régime. This is what emerges from this book that examines the French decorative style from the seventeenth century to the 1920’s. It includes furniture, lamps, porcelain, glass, fabrics and wall paper created by well-known artists such as Boulle, Bérain, Meissonnier, Baccarat, Christofle, Guimard, Delaunay, but also by unknown craftsmen, without forgetting the great royal manufacturers – Sèvres and Gobelins – who were responsible for the indisputable pre-eminence of the French decorative arts throughout the world.
With a unique collection of full-colour photographs, designs, and samples with decorative shapes and patterns, this book is the perfect sequel to the previous volume on English style.
