PAMM’s chic seat
Roche Bobois, the Paris-based retailer of funky modular sofas, has announced a new collab with renowned Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. She has reimagined six of Roche Bobois’ iconic pieces, including its “Ava” chairs and “Mah Jong” sofa, in eye-popping fabrics. The pieces are on display at the Pérez Art Museum Miami through Dec. 5, and will later be auctioned, with funds going to Vasconcelos’ eponymous charity, which supports artists.
Baccarat staging a coupe
Raise a glass to Baccarat, which recently unveiled its first stateside Boutique BBar and Lounge in the Design District’s Palm Court plaza. The glittering new shop displays the brand’s legendary crystalware, which shoppers can peruse while enjoying a signature cocktail from the colorful bar. Coffee, tea and nibbles are also on offer and everything — from the crystal chandeliers to the Champagne coupes — is for sale. Cheers!
Bottega Veneta’s Design District digs
Miami’s swanky Design District is welcoming another red-hot luxury brand. Bottega Veneta’s new two-story digs (its first in Miami) were dreamed up by the label’s creative director, Daniel Lee. “I wanted a one-off store that fused Miami with Montebello, [Italy], creating a space with a modern sense of color, calmness and joy,” he says. Men’s and women’s collections are on offer, along with those coveted bags and accessories, displayed on “Bottega blue” tables. Swoon!

Art lovers? It’s in the bag.
Made in the shade
