Since 1935, the Parisian company Pierre Frey has designed and manufactured some of the most coveted textiles and wallpaper in the world. A member of the prestigious Comité Colbert, an association of 78 French luxury houses, Pierre Frey is an ambassador of French taste. This lavish new book celebrates a family-owned company that has flourished by preserving centuriesold crafts and techniques to both reproduce period textiles and design eclectic, contemporary creations. Pierre Frey fabrics, rugs, wall coverings, upholstered furniture, and home accessories appear here in rooms created by some of today’s best-known interior designers. The company’s proud tradition of quality and excellence draws from the past and always looks toward the future.
Beginning with the jet age of the 1940s and 1950s, air travel has been at the forefront of technology, culture, and luxury. The Art of Flying explores its fascinating evolution, curating a vibrant cultural history from the mid-twentieth century to the present. From technological developments such as pressurized cabins and the Concorde to the flair of custom crew uniforms by renowned designers including Dior, Emilio Pucci, and Moncler, as well as its interplay with architecture and art, air travel throughout history has been at once a reflection of its time and a symbol of the cutting edge. In partnership with VistaJet and lavishly illustrated with over seven decades of imagery, The Art of Flying celebrates the golden past and the dream of luxury air travel today.

An internationally acclaimed interior design sensation, Miles Redd is known for his quirky brand of cozy glamour. This lavishly illustrated volume features a diverse selection of his unique interiors, an inspiration to anyone interested in spirited, eclectic design. Excerpt from Introduction:
“This is a book about dreams coming true; the curiosities in the rooms I have decorated; and the people, artists, and places that have inspired me. When all is said and done and I am long forgotten, maybe someone will find this book in a dusty library—if such a thing still exists—and glimpse a bit of the pleasure my life has given me. I want them to have the sensation of dancing across an MGM soundstage, silhouetted in a klieg light, because that was my intention with this book, a very personal blend of work and fantasy.”
