By Francis Spar
Paris: Realites/Hachette, 1973. The elusive, large, French coffee-table book on modern furniture and design, the scarce fifth volume in the decoration series, with the silver interior (by Francois Catroux) on the cover. Architects and interior designers include David Hicks, Henri Samuel, Francois Catroux, Serge Royaux, David Mlinaric, Didier Aaron, Gae Aulenti, Carla Venosta, John Stefanidis, Michel Boyer, Andree Putnam, Claude Lombardo, Claudio Dini, Francois Arnal et Atelier A, Piero Pinto, Alberto Pinto, Jay Spectre, Anita Bachman, Jacques Grange, Yves Vidal et Charles Sevigny, etc. Apartments of Karl Lagerfeld, Roger Vivier, Maurice Rheims, Gunther Sachs, etc. Many examples of modern furniture throughout. Book and dust jacket in very good condition— a beautiful copy of a book that will not disappoint, with only very minor flaws...faint wear and minor loss at extremities, a couple of short closed tears, faint age-toning.
