I found my new favorite gallery! I was profiting an evening off and walking around few days ago and accidentally saw the most interesting gallery; L’Atelier 55. The three floors are FULL of antique furniture, art, candles and small decoration pieces, everything from Ettore Sottsass to Pierre Jeanneret and Murano glass objects. As an opposite from usual galleries, which tend to be very distant and a bit scary to enter, L’Atelier 55 has more a boutique-like atmosphere with even prices put on everything. I might have to go back for the Murano glass ashtrays seen above. L’Atelier 55, 8 Rue des Saints-Pères, 75007 Paris

Mai-Thu Perret, Eventail des carresses (coeur, poumons, utérus), 2018

Alexander Calder, Untitled, 1957

It is time for FIAC again. Luckily I was able to visit on Thursday with a little less people and I ended up browsing over four hours. I love discovering both of old classics and upcoming artists and found many exciting pieces I definitely want to share with you later. If you are in Paris, you have until Sunday to visit.

CALICI MILANESI by Agustina Bottoni

Arno by Michele de Lucci

Gallery hopping has been my favorite activity during the hot days this July (+37 degrees yesterday, could we have some rain please?). I spotted the Arno glasses by Michele de Lucci in A1043 gallery, which remind me of Ettore Sottsass in a minimal way and I absolutely adore them! Yes, maybe it’s from the heat, but I’m currently very into Memphis movement.

The martini glass on the right is by Milan based Argentinian designer Agustina Bottoni.

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.

Isamu Noguchi – Akari lamp

Paris is a perfect city for gallery tours, especially if you are into antique furniture. Gallery Downtown in the 6th arrondissement has currently very inspiring collection on display, including several pieces from Noguchi.
