Christian Liaigre's epoch-defining interiors include the Mercer Hotel in New York, offices for Valentino Couture in Paris, and Selfridges department store in London, as well as private residences for Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld, and Kenzo.His luxurious dark-wood minimalism and masculine palette of creams, browns, and grays have redefined modernism, supplanting the Scandinavian blond timbers on white that just a few years ago were the sine qua non of the modern interior. Working in close collaboration with Liaigre, Herbert Ypma set out to capture and document eight recent and previously unpublished residential projects. They are incredibly diverse: a modernist retreat on the Galician coast belonging to the family of Spanish fashion designer Adolfo Dominguez; a former artist's atelier in Montparnasse; Rupert Murdoch's capacious SoHo loft; an eighteenth-century Bavarian timber farmhouse owned by the proprietor and designer of Germany's fashion label Strenesse; and Liaigre's own fisherman's cottage retreat on the Ile de Re.

Herbert Ypma is the author and photographer who created the popular Hip Hotels series. His previous books include Maison: Christian Liaigre.From Publishers Weekly:
Arguably one of the most influential designers alive today, Christian Liaigre pioneered the use of leather sofas, dark woods and gray walls at a time when pine furniture and white plaster were considered the epitome of style—thousands of restaurants, hotels and homeowners around the world followed his lead. In this study of Liaigre’s most recent "domestic projects," Ypma presents eight houses that demonstrate "the way that Liaigre’s modern and uncomplicated signature is subtly adjusted and adapted to each specific property and location." A large family getaway in Galicia, Spain, for example, contains sliding screens made out of the same kind of woven willow that local fisherman use to make their nets. And in Soho, New York, an apartment’s master bathroom is constructed under a historic rainwater tank. Most surprising to Liaigre fans, however, may be the designer’s new affection for vivid color. Two of the houses depicted here are Liaigre’s own: both incorporate large swathes of deep red or mustard yellow into the otherwise restrained décor. Ypma’s explanatory texts are exceptionally well written: forceful, amusing and loaded with a wealth of art historical knowledge. (The introduction, for one, includes a concise summary of Louis XIV’s "hugely successful campaign to make France the dominant nation in luxury consumer goods.") "Luxe, calme and moderne," Ympa writes, are the hallmarks of Liaigre’s works; the same could be said of his book. 500 color photographs.
