This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: A glimpse inside the unique worlds of rich cultural heritage, tradition, and splendour. Many historic houses in Paris serve as residences to foreign ambassadors; these majestic sites are closed to the general public. From a seventeenth-century htel particulier, to a Belle Epoque palace, to a distinctively contemporary setting, each residence rivals the next in its beauty, art collection, and period furniture set against a backdrop of accomplished refinement. From China and Peru to Egypt and Poland, Alain Stella invites us over the threshold inside the most prestigious chancelleries and ambassadorial residences in Paris. Tapestries inspired by Goyas drawings grace the lavish salons at the Spanish residence. Jean Prouv and Charlotte Perriand created a minimalist interior at the Japanese residence that evokes the refined style of a traditional Japanese home. The palace of Eugne de Beauharnaishome to the German ambassadors since 1818retains its elaborate Empire style, intact since the time of Josephine. Superb photographs, specially commissioned for this book over the course of a year, divulge the secrets of these previously unpublished artistic and architectural treasures.
