Eileen Gray designed the site and its landscaping, the building, the spatial arrangement, the different windows and doors; she created the hardware, the many items of fixed and loose furniture, the lamps, the textiles, and the color scheme—all while also being involved in transporting the building materials and supervising construction. While some of the one hundred elements that Eileen Gray designed specifically for E.1027, only about a quarter are included in the monograph; nevertheless, upon turning to the last page, the attentive reader may well conclude that there was not one comparable total work of modern art produced in the twentieth century anywhere as this debut in architecture.
