A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Zoom into this Embroidered Panel for a Cabinet Door

Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum / New York / Art

These days, confined to our homes, many of us have found that our rooms contain little to look at. The walls need more pictures, the furnishings are drab, the faux-granite kitchen counter is depressing. If all this attention to your space has got you down, this virtual exhibition will transport you to a far more pleasing place, to a 16th-century interior, in which a small, stunningly ornate embroidery of a tree hangs over a cabinet door to enliven it. The Cooper-Hewitt invites viewers to zoom into this work for a fascinating tour of the artifact’s many intricacies. —C.J.F.
