Billy Baldwin

Baldwin was one of the great visionaries who made beautiful and comfortable homes—reading about the people for whom he designed them was fascinating.

Fernand David
Paul Léon

The best and rarest collection of books on the most influential event of the 20th century—the International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris of 1925.

Bruno Foucart
Jean-Louis Gaillemin

The French decorators and architects of the 1920s are best known, but there is just as much talent in this group from the 1940s.

James B. Garrison

A 17-bedroom house I did in Tuxedo Park (New York) by Pope taught me I needed this book to make the renovated house look like I’d never been there.

Michael Pollan

A wonderful reflection on the thought process that goes into building your perfect home.

Michael Gross

I actually read the book while I was working on one of the original duplexes at 740 Park Avenue, so I was engrossed by Gross!
