FIAC is always one of the highlights of my year. I love discovering all my favorite galleries from around the world, all gathered in Grand Palais for a weekend showing their best art pieces. During the event there are also many pieces exhibited around Paris with the concept of #FIAChorslesmurs – FIAC outside the walls – for which the selection this year was particularly great! Unfortunately I didn’t manage to see Yayoi Kusama’s Pumpkin at Place Vendôme as it had to be taken down due to strong wind, however I was extremely excited to visit Jean Prouvé’s demountable houses at Place de la Concorde exhibited by Galerie Patrick Seguin and Galerie Downtown, with all the gorgeous furniture of course.Näyttökuva 2019-11-2 kello 13.52.47

Not only that autumn is my favorite season weather wise, but also every September takes place my most anticipated weekend of the year; the European Heritage Days (Les Journées du Patrimoine). During these two- or three days most of the monuments, government buildings and cultural sites, even the ones that are usually closed for public, open their doors for free visits.

This time I went to visit the Préfecture des Hauts-de-Seine in Nanterre, which sounds nothing but boring for anyone who lives in Paris. But what an overly 70’s, gorgeous design- and art heaven it was behind closed doors. I especially loved the LC1 chairs by Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, which were everywhere down the halls and conference rooms.

We might have to wait for couple days for the official show pictures of The Row’s latest collection, but I couldn’t wait to share one sneak peek I found through Instagram. The set with Jean Prouvés aluminum and metal sun shutters already made me die and took me into mid-century modern -heaven, but also the collection will be something that sticks in my inspiration folders (and partly in my wardrobe) forever.

I visited once again my favorite gallery Galerie Patrick Seguin and spotted there this yellow pony hair sofa designed for Punjab University, Chandigarh by Pierre Jeanneret in 1952-56. I’ve been very into bright colors lately.
