Flashback at this spring’s Pavillon des Arts et du Design, held in the Tuileries Garden tents and beyond: the prize for most outstanding object went to antique dealer Franck Laigneau’s irresistible Jugendstil chairs by turn-of-the- 20th-century Finnish architect Yrjö Blomstedt. Made of wood painted watery green with stylized Symbolist leaves and lotus flowers, the curvy quartet went instantly on VIP night: Two were reserved by the Musée d’Orsay; the other pair was snapped up by a perspicacious Parisian decorator. 29 rue de Bellechasse, 7th, 01.47.05.64.27. www.franck-laigneau.com
