Trendsetter, fashion icon, and wife of an internationally renowned novelist, the interior designer Syrie Maugham (1879 1955) created an ultra-chic
Author Pauline C. Metcalf takes readers on a lively transatlantic voyage through Maugham's world, from the drawing rooms she decorated in London to the houses, villas, and apartments commissioned by clients in the United States and the Continent. With nearly three hundred photographs and illustrations, Syrie Maugham also profiles the designer's international clientele, a rarified group that included British royals, European aristocrats, American socialites, and Broadway stars. In Maugham's blend of traditional refinement and the Style Moderne, with occasional Surrealist flourish console tables floating on dolphin bases, fringed sleigh beds, sheepskin rugs, and miles of mirrored screens this cosmopolitan beau monde discovered a perfect expression of cafe-society chic.
The book features preface by Camilla Chandon, Syrie Maugham's granddaughter.
