Jacques Grange

Last Friday evening, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) presented acclaimed French interior designer Jacques Grange with the 2014 Trophée des Arts and Internet entrepreneur Fabrice Grinda with the 2014 Pilier d’Or at The Plaza hotel in New York City.

“By honoring Jacques Grange and Fabrice Grinda, FIAF celebrates style and vision,” explained FIAF President Marie-Monique Steckel. “Style because they both have developed an acute sense of turning life into art; vision because they both help define what our world of tomorrow will look like.”

Tête-à-Tête with Israeli artist Ayala Serfaty

Ayala Serfaty at Maison Gerard

Israeli artist Ayala Serfaty is internationally recognized for her ethereal glass filament and polymer sculptural lighting. We met with Ms. Serfaty, who was visiting Maison Gerard back in 2013 (her work is exclusively represented through that gallery), and found her to be passionate and quite articulate about her work, as she seeks to create new dialogues using ancient materials like silk and glass and pushing them in new directions. The artist has made inroads with collectors and museums around the world including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Centre de Pompidou and the Cooper Hewitt.

When it comes to swanky, artsy parties, downtown does it better. Especially when creative types are involved. So it was no surprise that earlier this month, a group of fashionable New Yorkers gathered at the hip and trendy Affirmation Arts studio space to celebrate with Longchamp, as they collaborated with Assouline and artist Sarah Morris, to host  an evening of cocktails as the French luxury House Longchamp commemorate their 20th anniversary of Le Pliage® handbags.

Meet Dee Dee Eustace!

Interior Designer and architect, Dee Dee Eustace

Dee Dee's rules for creating a chic gallery right inside your home? "Lighting in the gallery must light the art as well as the space. Incorporate wall sconces, but be careful because it takes up precious room for art. Add cove lighting to let the ceiling float away!" And what about your home foyer? "A foyer requires repetitious art, so save your large pieces for other rooms. Breaking up your wall space provides a rhythm and a beat to your entrance. Dance along with your art!"
