A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired.

In an exquisite volume, the illustrious French interiors house Liaigre takes us inside its latest cosmopolitan residences. For over thirty years Liaigre has solidified its signature excellent craftsmanship, precise aesthetic, and luxurious simplicity with a subtle eye for details; the house embodies elegant understatement, reminiscent of the most refined art de vivre.
Following the departure of its visionary founder in 2016, Liaigre has been infused with new energy. Throughout the book's pages, readers will delve into character-filled interiors that speak to its vision for the future.
A Japanese house overlooking hot thermal springs; a modernist palace in New Delhi (Liaigre s first project in India); a delicate renovation of a traditional local villa in St. Moritz; an update to a glamorous Parisian villa from the early twentieth century; and a modern reinterpretation of a Bavarian-style mansion in Munich all of these projects and more represent manifestos of the Liaigre style. Furthermore, a visual immersion into Liaigre s Paris studio offers a behind the- scenes glimpse into the house s creative know-how.
Featuring exceptional images from specially commissioned photoshoots and an engaging essay by French art historian Francoise Claire Prodhon, this tome will delight new and old fans of Liaigre s designs as well as interiors aficionados everywhere.
