Saving humanity’s live retail experience from the cold metaverse — one dazzling...

The 87-year-old interior designer passed away in January and was—with Christian Liaigre and Philippe Starck—one of three French decorators who truly counted in the 20th century. Known for introducing the idea of French minimalism, Putman also created interiors for the Morgans Hotel, the cabin of the Concorde and Karl Lagerfeld’s apartment. Today her legacy endures through Studio Putman, led by daughter Olivia; their latest work includes the refurbished—and dramatically whitewashed—rooms of the Sofitel Arc de Triomphe (rooms, from $405; 14 Rue Beaujon; 33-1/5389-5050; sofitel.com). Studio Putman is at 22 Rue Chauchat; studioputman.com.
