Les réflexions de Monet

Bâle To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Fondation Beyeler is exhibiting 50 paintings by Claude Monet: meadows rimmed with poppies, young ladies fishing on the banks of the River Epte, haystacks, cathedrals, bridges and more. It’s an opportunity to take in the impassioned work of this painter fascinated by light.

New York Festival-goers loved these record sleeves when they were put on display at the Rencontres d’Arles in summer 2015. Now they’ve been brought together in this excellent tome, a kind of allegorical story featuring record labels, stars and legendary photographers. From Miles Davis by Irving Penn to Grace Jones by Jean-Paul Goude and Coltrane by Francis Wolff.

Bijou de sol

Katmandou Handknotted in Nepal, this carpet in 60% Tibetan wool and 40% Chinese silk features myriad eyes that look like amulets. Would you dare step on the latest piece by the Atelier Février? Yes, because the creative duo Florian Pretet and Lisa Mukhia Pretet, who are based in Kathmandu and Toulouse, see a carpet, however sumptuous, as a “living space.”

Bienvenus

Copenhague First impressions are crucial, so they say. Not least when entering someone’s home. So Danish designer Montana took a look at our clutter-filled entrance halls and came up with a new collection of modular furniture: a slimline coat rack, a bench for taking your boots off, alcoves to tuck your bags into. Available in no fewer than 42 colors, to get it right from the start.
