Set In Style Gallery Tour

As you know, I was entranced by the Cooper Hooper Set In Style Van Cleef show. (For any new visitors, please see my original post on the show from last Tuesday.)  I am excited to be able to share with you this video of Patrick Jouin, the designer of the exhibition, giving a gallery tour explaining his ideas for the space. It gives you an insider peek at this magical installation. The museum is lovely, jewelry is gorgeous, installation fabulous and he’s not so bad either!!  So for all of you who won’t be able to get to the Cooper Hewitt, enjoy! And a final piece on the show coming next week including hopefully a wonderful interview!

  1. With your first post of this show, I had a little bit of trouble imagining how glorious it is. Now, the splendor of it all is spell-blinding. Thank you so much.

  2. Oh Q – best lecture I ever attended was at the MAD museum where Patrick Jouin kept me in rapture explaining his design for a cutting board and for a and pot or Alessi, and how he designed the chairs for the new restaurant in the Eiffel Tower based on the weight of the new construction. it was 2 hours of bliss that I wish had lasted 2 days… You nailed it again!

  3. What a treat indeed to see behind the scenes of this kind of event. My kids and work for Houston’s Natural Science museum (I should say volunteer) and we were able to go behind the scenes and give some of the tours of the travelling Narnia exhibit. We had so much fun.

  4. I feel as if I’ve just glided into the elegant world of ‘To Catch A Thief’ with your last several posts…and I feel a bit ‘Bond-ish’ too.
    What a beautiful exhibit, and to have in the Carnegie Mansion just put it over the top…thank you for sharing all of this so divinely!
    xo J~

  5. Again Quintessence Blog this video is spectacular as your post on the individual jewelry by Van Cleef & Arpel was earlier this week! Thank you so much for inspiring me and for sharing this extraordinary video with us!
