This week’s best stories: Our picks for Baselworld, Morocco’s cultural heart, and Diptyque’s new store

The International Furniture Fair Singapore 2018 is well underway this week at the Singapore Expo. 374 exhibitors from 26 countries are showing off their finest furnishings and paraphernalia. You’ll want to spend the entire day at the fair just trying the various plush loungers and admiring the handcrafted homewares. Be sure to check out local home accessories brand Sam & Sara and the Ho Chi Minh City-based design firm District Eight.

On the other end of the globe, the Geneva Motor Show is revving up its engines. As usual, we’ll be expecting the usual turnout of concept cars and supercars. When you’re done scoping out the next car that is going into your garage, head Eastwards to nearby Austria, where thermal spas with stunning views await.

To keep you occupied as you’re making your way from one fair to another (in different continents, no less), here are this week’s best stories that will make for excellent reading material.
