Coffee Table Books
Today Best Design Books decided to show you 5 new coffee table books that any art and design lover must read! From Francis Sultana to Luke Edward Hall, these new books are the perfect holiday reading.
Greco Disco: The Art & Design Of Luke Edward Hall
Delve into the fantastical universe of British design wunderkind Luke Edward Hall, who, in just four years, has amassed a following that has led to partnerships with Richard Ginori, Christie’s, and the Rug Company. This debut monograph spotlights his ever-charming forays into furnishings, ceramics, art, and interiors—all of which put a playful twist on classical motifs.
John Galliano For Dior
One of fashion’s greatest showmen, John Galliano never failed to deliver major drama while overseeing the House of Dior, where he worked from 1996 to 2011. Vogue lensman Robert Fairer captured the provocative couturier’s prolific rise, and this account boasts many never-before-seen images that are bound to enthrall any fashion lover.
A Great Party: Designing The Perfect Celebration
Powerhouse event planner Bryan Rafanelli masterminded the holiday decor for President Obama’s White House and even organized Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Now you can throw a POTUS-worthy fête of your own, courtesy of his new title, which reveals his best-kept secrets for conjuring memorably elegant celebrations that spin a personal yarn.
Francis Sultana: Designs & Interiors
Christened Malta’s Ambassador of Culture last year, acclaimed interior designer Francis Sultana is marking a decade of his namesake firm with a lush new monograph. A comprehensive guide to his striking oeuvre, the book captures Sultana’s gift for creating spaces as polished as they are unpredictable.
Artist’s Letters: Leonardo Da Vinci To David Hockney
Over a hundred letters from some of art history’s biggest names—among them Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Picasso—have been collected and reproduced for the first time in this engrossing compilation. (Letters in foreign languages, like Joan Miró’s missive in French to architect Marcel Breuer, have been translated.) Art historian and radio broadcaster Michael Bird provides context for each of the correspondences, some of which include personal illustrations.
