In early December every year, people converge for a handful art and design events in Miami, anchored by the fairs Art Basel Miami and Design Miami . The parties, installations, performances and more have all but wrapped up for 2013, and with that in mind, here's what caught our eye: Louis Vuitton's Charlotte Perriand House: Images from Architect Magazine The French fashion house Louis Vuitton played architect this year by re-creating a now-iconic 1934 house by Charlotte Perriand (pictured above and at the top of the post), one of the world's first female modernists. Yes, clothing was hung with care and you can bet that the brown and tan decor echoed the sponsor's signature handbag look.  Opening of the Perez Art Museum Miami: Images from Design Boom This Herzog & de Meuron-designed spectacle nods to Miami's rich architectural history in the firm's design approach of  "deconstructing the Art Deco box." Vertical planters and starkly adorned exhibition spaces challenge traditional forms in this, Miami's first dedicated modern art space.  Jean Prouve's Maison Demountable: Images from Design Miami Jean Prouve's early example of pre-fab housing was meticulously assembled and on display at Design Miami, thanks to the tireless efforts of Galerie Patrick Seguin. The gallery also displayed its collection of furnishings by the likes of Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier and Jean Royére...much to fair-goers delight.  Natural and neutrals seemed to be prevalent everywhere we looked across town. We saw a noticeable return to mid-century influences, especially in the refined modern sconces in the installations. And lastly, an interest in comfort seemed to be in effect across the city. And with that as a bellwether for what's coming next to contemporary design, we got to thinking about designs that would look great in our homes for the years to come: Cerno Levis Beech Wood LED Pendant Kipling White with Walnut Coffee Table Chile Kenora Fabric Upholstery Contemporary Armchair Parker Brass Jonathan Adler Wall Sconce The hoopla won't return until next December, but Euro Style Lighting has plenty of on-trend contemporary lighting fixtures on hand to ogle in the meantime.
