The French edition of the Wallpaper* City Guide Paris includes the new Art and Design chapter, featuring highbrow dealers Galerie Kreo (who in the past have collaborated with the Bouroullec Brothers) and Carpenters Workshop, and galleries such as Gosserev and S Bensimon that blur the line between art and furniture. The updated French editions also highlight each city’s most happening bars, restaurants, fashion stores and hotels.
