The design industry is fortunate in having so many remarkable coffee table books released year-in and year-out. We love to feature them.

Coffee Table Books

The caliber of books we choose to feature is reflective of our luxury point of view here at Bruce Andrews Design, an example being the monograph of sumptuous projects created by French designer François Catroux released by Rizzoli. In the foreword to the book, Diane von Furstenberg, says, “François knows how to create disciplined grandeur and majestic architecture while combining them with incomparable comfort; he knows how to achieve both scale and coziness at the same time. This ‘grand coziness’ is something all his own.” I wholeheartedly agree that there is a soothing impressiveness to the interiors he achieves.

The editors at AD say of the Parisian-based designer, “For nearly five decades François Catroux has been turning out spaces praised for their connoisseurship, voluptuous textures and shapes, and decisive swagger.” They note that his design philosophy is “to create the best skeleton possible before decoration.” You can see all of our reviews of coffee table books by clicking on this tag.
