Book Summary

Chintz in glorious faded colors, fringed and tasseled curtains, sofas designed for years of fireside comfort, and expertly applied paint finishes, subtly lit to show off beautiful antiques and paintings:  these are the hallmarks of English country style, developed fifty years ago by the preeminent English design firm of Colefax & Fowler.  The resulting comfortable and understated elegance is currently more fashionable than ever, and can be found in houses and apartments throughout the world.

This gorgeous book is both a history and a pictorial celebration of the enormously influential design firm.  A fascinating anecdotal text tells the story of the firm's founder, John Fowler, and shows his style evolving through his association with Sibyl Colefax and Nancy Lancaster and later through his work in restoring National Trust Houses.  In addition, it describes the expert craftsmanship and technical skills behind the firms internationally acclaimed artistry.
