Timelessness and supreme craftsmanship are the hallmarks of this family company which for more than a century has maintained its reputation for quality and elegance. UP CLOSE not only offers a look at new developments at the company but transports readers from grand spaces like the White House and the Palace of Versailles to romantic cottages and rustic fishing camps, offering a wealth of creative ideas on using fabric, wallpaper and furnishings in the most effective way. In the last decade we've gone through shabby chic elegance, to super-expensive minimalism and back to traditional. Through it all Brunschwig and Fils has proven that 'good design is forever'. The authors explain the history of early textile techniques, toiles and chinoiserie and show how historic patterns can be re-invented and used in today's homes to create timeless, beautiful and personal interiors. They present work from designers around the world, showing us hotels, restaurants and even schools that have used their products in innovative ways.
