Lacoste, Jacques and Patrick Seguin. JEAN ROYERE. Two volumes, 656 pages, illustrated throughout. 4to, cloth, slipcase. Paris, Edition Galerie Jacques Lacoste and Galerie Patrick Seguin, 2013.
A beautifully presented, linen-bound, two-volume boxed monograph on French designer Royère, whose midcentury designs are notable for their organic forms, saturated color, and sumptuous materials. In the first volume, newly photographed individual pieces are mirrored by archival images of the rooms they furnished, and both interviews and essays explore his influence and creative genius. The second volume features 380 thumbnail images of furniture and other objects, accompanied by detailed references and variants. Also included is a sketchbook of previously unpublished drawings.
