Description

Product Description

With a foreword by Miles Redd, this luxurious decorating resource trains the eye to recognize enduring, quality home goods and to use them to dazzling design effect.

Quality matters. Just as a home’s foundation should be built to stand the test of time, so, too, should the furniture, objects, and elements of our rooms speak to an enduring sense of beauty and comfort. They should outlast trends and our loving day-to-day use. But how does one recognize quality and judge whether something is well made?

Christiane Lemieux set out to answer this question by interviewing the world’s greatest experts. Weaving together the insights and guidance of dozens of wallpaper and paint specialists, textile fabricators, accessories artisans, and interior designers, Lemieux has curated an unparalleled education in recognizing the hallmarks of timeless, heirloom-quality pieces. Hundreds of elegant home interiors—both iconic examples from the past and stunning residences today--represent the range of luxurious and customized environments that can be created with fine décor.

Review

"Chock-full of inspiring interiors—and mini-guides to understanding the most fundamental elements of a great room. From the history of wallpaper to the evolution of a frame, The Finer Things breaks down furniture, textiles and details—and how to incorporate them—to show how good design is truly the sum of its parts. It’s probably a perfect housewarming gift, if such a thing exists." — The New York Times


Christiane Lemieux is an absolute authority on great design. [The Finer Things] is a must-have for any design-loving library. (And boy, does it look good on a coffee table.)" — Rue Magazine

Pretty Spine for Styling

Never opened the book, probably never will. Purchased for styling purposes only. 5 stars from an aesthetic perspective! Posting picture so others in my shoes can see what the spine looks like :)

This book is awesome! The photographs are plentiful and gorgeous and there''s just enough text that makes me want to read it cover to cover. I just received it and am so surprised at how much good info is in here.

There''s a mix of photographs of interiors with text written about who you need to know, as in "recognizing the major players" in wallpaper, upholstered furniture, ceramics, etc. There''s also info about how things are made, so when you look at a fine piece of furniture you know how it''s actually created. Very useful information.

I was looking for a book that shows how to mix fine antiques and artifacts with some modern pieces. This definitely shows many many examples of this and way more.

There are reviews with comments about the cover and how it actually *looks* on your coffee table or bookshelf. It''s very attractive, but I can assure you by morning mine will be filled with sticky notes and possibly some highlighting. Use it however you want.

Do NOT buy this book of you''re after that shiney, foil gold finish. The cover is simply a paper cover with a photo of the gold foil. No shine and very dull. Looks like a knock off.

Eh. I got this for a cocktail table book. The picture is really misleading. The color of the front cover isn’t good shiny metallic. It’s very muted. I flipped through it and it has good history and info. More tranditional styles, it wasn’t worth the cost to me. Don’t get it as a cocktail book. Only get it if your in the industry or die hard decorator and plan to read it. I may return it just because my sole purpose of getting it was for the shiny cover in the photo which it is not.

Great book. Beautiful pictures. The best part about this book though is probably the details provided by the author. In terms of history as well as details regarding the artists behind the pieces/work that is included. Which makes this book a great resource for use by you or your friends should you be lucky enough to be able to afford to commission some of them.
Overall a great purchase. Not giving it 5 stars because of shipment issues by Amazon. The book arrived with tears on the spine and scuffed. Clearly not new. I would try some of the other third-party sellers to see if "new" books actually arrive in mint condition which is the expectation!

I studied architecture and design in college, and I have been working in the design industry for several years. This book should be required reading for anyone new to design. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is extremely comprehensive, and Ms. Lemieux took 3 YEARS to research and compile the information.
The photographs are stunning. The book itself is thick and heavy, and just plain yummy. The author delves deep into each category of design, giving a history as well as telling you who is the best of the best in each category.
DON''T MISS THIS BOOK! (And anyone on your gift list would be THRILLED to receive it.)

The book is large and is substantial in weight, the cover is pretty it matte not glossy as are the internal pages. The initial flip through revealed interesting images. However it is quite frustrating to open a poorly packaged box which seemed to have an unusual amount of gritty sand in addition to the other two much smaller books. The box contained nothing to prevent the books from shifting and sliding around. This book was tossed on top of the smaller books without packing so the corner is damaged because in transit being a quite heavy box I’m certain it was tossed around. It’s amazing how I pay for Prime yet the quality of the service continues to decrease while the annual fee seems to increase. The damage isn’t significant enough to hassle with returning so I’ll work around it.

I saw this stunning book in Chapters/Indigo for $75. This was $61. It arrived in less than 24 hours. I bought it as a decor piece. I had to hide the little cable box in a decorative jewelry box and elevated it with a couple of books. It’s perfect with my gold and white bedroom decor. Book is pristine. Well packed in the box. The cover is textured, more of an orangey gold and creams. Lots of different styles and famous designers. A must have.
