CHAIR MAN: Multitasking French designer Alexis Mabille has turned his talents to sprucing up furniture. Two 18th-century neoclassical chairs sporting upholstery designed by Mabille (think fancy bows and couture embellishments) will feature in the Tremplin (Springboard) section of the upcoming Biennale des Antiquaires fair in Paris this month, geared to promote the future talents of the Biennale. Art historian and antiques dealer Christophe de Quénetain approached Mabille to work on the project. The event will run Sept. 15 to 22 at the Grand Palais.
