Christian Liaigre remains the quintessential interior designer of contemporary Europe. His capacity to juxtapose and seamlessly meld modern lines with antiques and collectables manifests as statements of timeless grandeur. Leaving nothing to chance, each object is selected, placed and perfectly tuned to the Liaigre environment. As a continuum of Maison (2004), Liaigre explores six recent projects: a luxury yacht, a 19th century Toronto mansion, a French villa, a Swiss farmstead, a villa in Bora Bora and Alta Gracia (a Spanish townhouse). For Alta Gracia, Liaigre has created an interior that is both entirely modern and Spanish without for a moment being modern-Spanish. Indeed, Alta Garcia exemplifies Liaigre’s astonishing ability for truth, whereby in creating something new, he need never deny the bones. The Toronto mansion further confirms Liaigre’s ability to play with time without parody. Thomas Luntz’s text is insightful without being intrusive of the notoriously publicity shy Liaigre.
