This long-overdue, eponymous first monograph of India Mahdavi takes us on a retrospective journey through the most emblematic realizations of the world-renowned Paris-based interior designer, internationally praised for her unique sense of color.
Offering an unprecedented perspective on Mahdavi's creative process, this book highlights a comprehensive array of the inspirational images, drawings, sketches, and models that evolved into some of her most celebrated projects including The Gallery at Sketch in London, Ladurée in Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Geneva, as well as Hôtel du Cloître in Arles, and many others. Admired for her color sensibility, this book highlights the depth and breadth of Mahdavi's talent and the variety of her projects.
This deluxe tome, art directed by Studio Achermann, features the tactile, large format book in a bespoke, patterned slipcase, and includes an additional booklet featuring Mahdavi's photography that captures details, patterns, colors, and more from her travels around the world. Additionally, an extensive interview with Mahdavi by Dr. Javier F. Contreras, dean of the Department of Interior Architecture at HEAD in Geneva, Switzerland, contributes to make this volume an insightful celebration of the first twenty-one years of India Mahdavi's singular career.

“We couldn’t believe it when we heard that interior designer India Mahdavi--the doyenne of all things colorful--had yet to release a monograph. Now it’s here at long last, and it’s chockablock with enough Technicolor rooms to stave off the winter blahs.” --Elle Decor
“This book is the most visually delightful seen in a very long time. Every library needs a copy.” --Interior Design
“ ’If there is a common denominator to all my projects, it is the necessity of creating a sense of joy,’ writes India Mahdavi in the introduction to her new book. Indeed, such joviality also pervades this monograph. Focusing on the AD100 Hall of Fame designer’s public projects and products, the book allows readers to immerse themselves in the Paris-based talent’s process as they thumb through her inspiration images, fabric swatches, sketches, maquettes, and more.” —Architectural Digest
