Over Pergay's 50-year-and-counting career, her sophisticated objects, furniture and decor have won her a following and an illustrious clientele that has included Salvador Dali, Pierre Cardin and King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, but they have only recently gained recognition among design collectors, curators and aficionados. Maria Pergay: Between Ideas and Design is the first in-depth survey of the designer's remarkable life and work. Beginning in the 1950s and continuing to the present, it features over 200 photographs of interiors and furniture, archival illustrations from her personal collection - most of which have never before been published - and a candid interview. The end product is equal parts authoritative reference, source of rare insight and aesthetic journey into the lifestyle of the cultural and social elite of the late 60s and early 70s.
