Synopsis: The inimitable style of renowned French interior designer Madeleine Castaing, chronicled in-depth for the first time. While many were drumming to the beat of modernism in the early- and mid-twentieth century, French antiquaire and decorator Madeleine Castaing created her own look that was a unique blend of neoclassicism, Proustian romanticism, and pure wit. Her distinctive aesthetic vision has inspired tastemakers on both sides of the Atlantic, and her devotees—both then and now—are legion. Ocelot carpeting, opaline blue, "coolie" lampshades, and an eclectic mix of neoclassical furnishings ranging from English Regency to Napoleon III all formed part of the vocabulary of "le style Castaing." This lavishly illustrated volume—the first on her work—explores in-depth the elements of her style, and examines how she crafted interiors so emotive that visitors felt that they had stepped into a Balzac novel or a Proustian recollection. Her entire life and career are chronicled, from her early years in Montparnasse, the epicenter of artistic activity in Paris, to her incomparable country house Lèves and her legendary shop on rue Jacob in Paris.

About the Author: Emily Evans Eerdmans is a design and decorative arts historian.  She received her master's degree in fine and decorative arts from Sotheby's Institute of Art in London, and is an instructor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.  Her previous books include Classic English Design and Antiques and Regency Redux.

Jacques Grange
is a world-famous interior decorator who worked with Madeleine Castaing in his early career.

 Frédéric Castaing
