No season would be complete without touches of delightful Gallic whimsy. At the Galerie Matignon through January 26, artist Joy de Rohan-Chabot’s dream world Féerie offers such captivating creatures as a winged lizard curling up a candlestick or an irresistible owl peering from a silvery ivy-twined lantern cage. Through Jan 26, 2013. Galerie Matignon: 18 ave Matignon, Paris 8th. www.galeriematignon.com

In their latest collaboration for Alessi, designer Christian Ghion and three-star chef Pierre Gagnaire conferred over the chef’s preoccupation with the egg—“an elementary ingredient at the base of cuisine,” he asserts. They came up with Le Nid, a small enameled ceramic “nest” on a base of steel sticks, symbolizing an egg resting on twigs—a ramekin for gently cooking and serving eggs. www.alessi.com
