A Life in Houses: Discover Karl Lagerfeld’s Curated Residences
If you’re tired of the monotonous and over-the-top interior decor flooding Instagram, there’s a new book that offers an escape. “Karl Lagerfeld: A Life in Houses” takes you on a journey through the committed aesthete’s various residences, from Monaco to Paris, Biarritz, Rome, and Hamburg.
Each home was meticulously designed to reflect Lagerfeld’s uncompromising vision. From his starkly minimalist apartment in Quai Voltaire, where he described it as “floating in your own spaceship over a very civilized past,” to the extravagantly ornate 18th-century mansion Hotel Pozzo di Borgo, Lagerfeld’s attention to detail is evident.
Notably, Lagerfeld fully embraced the Memphis style in his Gio Ponti-designed block in Monaco, featuring Masanori Umeda’s boxing ring and the iconic Carlton bookcase. The book, written by Patrick Mauriès and Marie Kalt, showcases Lagerfeld’s passion for design and his ability to create distinct atmospheres in each of his homes.
