Inspiration for a little summer glamping: Louis Vuitton's 1891 bed trunk in Damier canvas from the exhibition, Louis Vuitton - Marc Jacobs, on view through September 16 at Les Arts Décoratifs.

Moving from costumes and textiles to the toy gallery, Les histoires de Babar brings back memories of childhood naps. It continues at the museum through September 2.

Included in this show are 100 original drawings by Jean de Brunhoff and his son Laurent de Brunhoff, which chronicle the evolution of the 80-year-old elephant, along with related toys, board games, photos and vignettes.

For curling up and enjoying a good story at home, Buta & Buti offers downtime accessories like this handprinted baby quilt, kids' pyjamas, bed linens, and even bed shorts for grown ups.

Babas reminds me of childhood naps, too! I would love to see that exhibit.
