  • Our friend Glenn Ban wrote to tell us that his new studio in East Hampton is officially up and running. In addition to vintage items, he has lighting by Dumais Made and Stone & Sawyer, furniture by Lawson Fenning, and ceramics by Ceramics and Rosario Varela.
  • Design fair Object & Thing has a pop-up exhibition at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, NY, now through May 9, with artists and artisans creating new works inspired by materials from the land—like floral installations by Frances Palmer. All of the works are for sale here; for reservations and visiting info, click here.
  • And one Margot’s own botanical assemblages is on display at Rockefeller Center via The Flag Project. Of the work, she says: “I made my festooned welcome mat literally a year ago—on April 6th, 2020, when we were all at home, only venturing out for walks, and nature was such a solace.” Take a look at the catalog for all of the works (and Margot’s, page 44).
