Title: 10,000 Years of Luxury

Author: Olivier Gabet

Co-edition: Louvre Abu Dhabi and Mus.e des Arts D.coratifs

What is, and what was luxury? This publication celebrates a world history of the lavish and the luxurious, through 350 extraordinary objects – fashion, jewellery, art, furniture, design and more. Discover how different cultures have defined luxury and the impact of such excess on the evolution of society, as a way to undermine or underline the status quo. Consider the prominent role of women in defining luxury and with it, the ebb and flow between excess and moderation.
