The New Romantics

Fill your home, your closet, and your social life with contemporary fin de siècle.


The Best Bet
Swooping lines and organic curves—hallmarks of the Arts and Crafts design movement from the turn of the last century—are on the rise as spare modernity wanes. One current example: the opulent, often utilitarian sculptures of contemporary sculptors Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, which are unmistakably modern but recall Art Nouveau in all its sinuous glory. An exhibit of their work, including this “Banbiloba” bronze chair, opens November 16 at Paul Kasmin Gallery (511 W. 27th St., nr. Eleventh Ave.; 212-563-4474).
