On My Bookshelf: Renzo Mongiardino

Posted by

My second book this week is a lush exploration of the opulent style of Renzo Mongiardino. In "Renzo Mongiardino: Renaissance Master of Style" ($95, Assouline), Laure Verchere explores the renowned architect and interior designer's influences and exacting craftsmanship.

The late Mongiardino was raised in a Baroque palazzo in Genoa and his sumptuous style was right in line with the lavish rooms created for theater and film, making him an in-demand theatrical designer for directors such as Franco Zeffirelli and Peter Hall.

Explore some of the luxurious spaces for yourself below:
