A New Nashville Concept Shop With Rotating Curatorial Themes

If you walked into the new Wilder Etudes store in Nashville, you might not notice anything out of the ordinary; it has its own vibe, of course, but otherwise appears no different than the kind of small, directional boutique you might find in Brooklyn or L.A. But everything stocked at Wilder Etudes adheres to a theme that will change every three months, and the connections aren't always obvious.

Visiting Brian Rideout’s New Show Is Like Walking Into One of His Paintings

Canadian artist Brian Rideout's paintings are inspired by amazing art-filled vintage interiors he finds in old magazines and DIY books, and at his new show, they're installed in a very unique, very meta way: with period-appropriate paintings by Al Held, Fernand Leduc, and Guido Molinari sprinkled in between them, and a "living room" full of vintage furniture placed in the middle of the room, so that the gallery effectively becomes a 3-D representation of the spaces depicted in his canvases.

Maybe it's the seven-year itch, but after a long period of subtle changes, this summer we decided to go all-out in revamping the online shop we've been running since 2010, adding almost a dozen new items by some of our favorite housewares and jewelry designers — with a dozen more on the way between now and fall.

Design Parade, a Festival in the French Countryside, is the Anti–Design Fair

Each spring, as we're challenged to survive the Milan fair, New York Design Week, and Design Miami-Basel in rapid succession, life really does start to feel like one big, annoying, never-ending design parade. And yet funny enough, the festival of that same name, which takes place in early July at the Villa Noailles in Hyères, often feels like the antidote — a charming anti-design-fair in the French countryside where creativity, not commerce, is the only thing on the agenda.

These Ceramics in a Former French Salon Are the Exact Amount of ’80s Nostalgia We Need Right Now

When Italian designer Valentina Cameranesi and curator Matylda Krzykowski first saw the former hairdresser's shop in Toulon, France — where the interior design portion of the annual Design Parade festival is held this year — its windows were plastered with the word "Féminin." Perhaps it was fate, because the word is an apt reference to Cameranesi’s work, which is on view in the former salon in her first solo exhibition until September 24.

See Sabine Marcelis’s Real-Life Version of Mondrian’s Most Famous Painting

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the launch of Theo Van Doesburg's seminal magazine, De Stijl, in 1917, and Rotterdam-based designer Sabine Marcelis recently helped carve out a space at the Cannes Film Festival to honor the art and design movement that adopted its name. For the festival's Dutch Pavilion, Marcelis brought to life Mondrian's famed 1935 painting "Composition with Red, Blue, and Yellow" by building a 3-D framework of black lines inset with gradient glass panels, then punctuating it with primary colored versions of her signature Voie Lights and Candy Cubes.

Nine New Mirrors We Love, On View at a Swiss Gallery

For the Lausanne gallery MOBILAB — which also does triple duty as part laboratory, part shop —the latest theme of works is “Face / Surface,” which entails a wild exploration of mirrors by nine designers, craftsmen, and artists. The varying concepts of reflection range from hanging balloon-like chandeliers by glassmaker and artist Matteo Gonet to quasi-circular, blue-hued shapes inspired by lunar cycles from Swiss designer Adrien Rovero.
