The Finer Things is equal parts inspiration and practical classic.

From wallpaper and flooring to furniture and accessories, Christiane Lemieux explores the elements of resilient home design. In this beautiful, lavishly illustrated 400-page volume, she covers the traditions, tools, and major players in the home-goods industries so that homeowners learn how to identify the hallmarks of timeless, heirloom-quality pieces. Christiane and dozens of other home-design experts also offer advice on how to live well with these pieces.

A visual timeline shows the history of artisan tile, a studio visit goes behind the scenes with the high-end wallpaper company de Gournay, and tastemakers' interiors dripping with style and luxury give timeless decorating ideas.
