A refreshing antidote to the contrived nature of much contemporary interior design, the textiles and decoration of Nathalie Farman-Farma have gained a devoted following among celebrity and socialite clients for their folkloric charm and romantic exuberance.
Drawing on the enchantment of fairytales and a history of material culture spanning Persia, Central Asia and Russia, Farman-Farma employs traditional printmaking techniques to create exquisitely detailed fabrics, which she uses to conjure interiors infused with warmth and natural charisma. Farman-Farma’s townhouse and studio in London and her family homes in Connecticut and Lake Tahoe feature in this captivating volume, forming the backdrop for her Decors Barbares range of fabrics, as well as her vast collection of antique textiles, costumes and jewellery. Vogue has called Farman-Farma ‘the textile designer you need to know’. Her clients include Lauren Santo Domingo, Tory Burch and influential interior designer David Netto, who writes the foreword to this book.
