The Webster, Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s celebrated den of chic, is moving into housewares. The designer fashion retailer launched a home section at her South Beach boutique. Stéphane Parmentier signed on as creative director for interiors. His namesake Parisian firm for interior architecture, design and creative direction works with luxury brands like Giobagnara and Hermès. He holds an extensive resume, having launched his career as Karl Lagerfeld’s assistant and rising to top posts at Christofle and Givenchy. Hériard Dubreuil shopped his curated home department for Printemps de la Maison and hoped to emulate its diverse assortment at her store. The opportunity finally arrived when shoe designer Pierre Hardy introduced her to Parmentier, who sought a showroom for all the interesting pieces he sources on his global travels. Some of his favorite items for the Webster are Studio Formafantasma’s signature vases in sky blue and khaki, beaded thrones by Nigerian artisans and a vintage floor lamp by the Memphis Group.

WADE WAVES GOODBYE
As the official real estate partner of the Miami Heat, ONE SIR congratulates professional basketball player Dwyane Wade on his well-deserved retirement. The team’s top leader in points, assists, steals and games played his final game on April 10. President Barack Obama to LeBron James paid tribute to one of the sport’s greatest legends at the emotional end to his illustrious career. During his 16 N.B.A. seasons, Wade garnered three N.B.A. championships with the Heat and the 2006 Finals MVP award. His talents also took him to the Olympics, where he scored a gold medal in 2008, and to 13 All-Star games. We’ll miss seeing his #3 jersey as well as his sparkling sneakers on the court but look forward to spotting the Miami resident around town as he begins his next chapter. See you next basketball season.
