Collecting is an art form, and our homes are the intimate museums where we display our treasures – and with them, aspects of ourselves. Stafford Cliff and Gilles de Chabaneix offer a fascinating compilation of images that celebrate the ways in which we integrate our favourite decorative objects into our homes.
From the lavish display of expensive and cherished antiques to the imaginative use of found objects, the collection showcases Gilles de Chabaneix’s gift for photographing revealing remarkable interiors throughout the world.
