Pierre Passebon and François Halard
Thirty-three new projects by Parisian master interior designer Jacques Grange redefine his visionary talent.
Over the course of his fifty-year career, Jacques Grange has designed homes for the world’s most respected collectors, artists, designers, and tastemakers, including Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, François Pinault, Robert Agostinelli, Valentino, Israel Englander, Terry and Jean de Gunzburg, Lauren and Andres Santo Domingo, and Aerin Lauder. His classical training at École Boulle and École Camondo, his early experience with French design legend Henri Samuel, and his passion for contemporary art resulted in a uniquely discerning approach to interior design. Grange’s seemingly natural, “non-designed” aesthetic is revealed through his unusual way of grouping objects and an unparalleled sense of style and attention to detail.
This essential book illustrates Grange’s wide-ranging inspirations and exquisite taste through thirty-three new residential projects in Europe and America, from a luxury hôtel particulier in Paris to a chic beachside cabana in Comporta and a midcentury-modern house in Los Angeles. Gallerist Pierre Passebon delineates Grange’s approach to design and decoration. Photography by François Halard captures these singular projects with profound sensibility.
Pierre Passebon is a collector and founder of the Galerie du Passage in Paris. François Halard is a preeminent interiors and architecture photographer.
