INN CROWD: Talk about a room with a view. The compact, one-room Hotel Everland, a mobile installation created by Swiss artists Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann, sits on top of the Palais de Tokyo museum, offering unparalleled views of the Eiffel Tower and the Paris skyline. After spending 18 months in Leipzig, Germany, the exhibit-cum-hotel room will remain in Paris until the end of 2008. By day, museum visitors can check out the colorful Seventies-inspired decor. By night, the petite suite is available for one-night-only stays, offering the usual amenities one expects in a luxury hotel, including room service and a king-size bed — plus a record player and "stylish" records. Reservations are available two months in advance at everland.ch. Nightly rates run from $492 to $656, based on current exchange rates. — Christine Cheng SIT, SPEAK: If chairs could talk, what might an angular love seat say to a wicker armchair from the time of Louis XV? Konstantin Grcic is currently considering this relationship and imagining what other pieces might say to each other in an exploration of art and design at the Decorative Arts Museum in Paris. The 42-year-old German industrial designer — who has left his imprint on companies such as Whirlpool, Muji, Krups and Magis — was given carte blanche to create dialogue between pieces from the museum's permanent collection alongside his own works. Juxtaposing previous design classics with contemporary favorites, Grcic works whimsical pairings, including his industrial Mayday lamp next to a Perriand stool from 1953.
Since a talking LED marquee accompanies each piece, you can't exactly say their lips are sealed.

GRAY PAPER: Eileen Gray, perhaps most famous for her Bibendum chair and circular glass E1027 table, is the focus of a Paris exhibition of 60 never-before-exhibited works on paper. A major figure in 20th-century design, Gray's admirers include designers Rick Owens and Derek Lam, whose debut collection for Tod's was inspired by her work, as well as avid modernist furniture collector Karl Lagerfeld. The exhibition features a collection of gouaches, collages and photographs given by Gray to her friend and biographer, Peter Adam. "Eileen Gray, Works on Paper" runs until Dec. 21 at Galerie Historismus, 9 Place des Vosges. — Allegra Farina

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
