Catalogue for the sale of fine furniture and works of art belonging to the French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy. Just as Givenchy designed the most sumptuous and elegant clothes, so he created the finest and most beautiful interiors. Every detail and element had to be perfect and of the best quality. This ethos is reflected in the important pieces of furniture, books, objects of art, pictures, carpets and sculpture featured in the sale. There are several pieces attributed to Boulle, an exceptional pair of Louis XV porphyry vases, a gilt-bronze cartel clock by Jean-Louis Lebeuf, an important mirror attributed to Charles Cressent, and a Queen Anne four-poster bed. The George II silver Hanover Chandelier designed by William Kent is catalogued in its own volume. The book is interspersed with photographs of the pieces in-situ in Givenchy's interiors.
