Renzo Mongiardino


what happens when one of the best designers of all time connects with one of the most innovative and inspiring magazines today? you get the new book on renzo mondgiardono by cabana editor martina sarotoga called the interiors and architecture of renzo mongiardino; painterly vision.

renzo, also a theatrical set designer, was a genius designer that celebrated artisans and artistry. his mastery of layering and details was second to none. there’s been a lot of books on renzo over the years, but this one is special because martina grew up in homes designed by renzo, in fact, i did a post on her grandparents home that renzo designed/ take a tour here. she still visits the home each summer with her family and is still inspired by it’s timeless beauty.

the book takes a fresh look at the interiors of renzo, most never seen before. lush interiors with trompe l’oeil finishes, museum-quality antiques, sumptuous fabrics, and a bewitching theatricality for clients that were elite members of the worlds of fashion, art, and society.

welcome to the world of renzo, and in many ways the world of cabana magazine- enjoy the painterly vision!
