One of the most striking things about shopping with us is the sheer number of choices at any one time. People often ask us just how we amass such collections. In most cases, it is a matter of searching high and low and piece by piece, but as in any business, sometimes it's who you know. One such valued source is a dealer we know who acquired, through auction, an entire storage facility filled with never before used (also known as "deadstock" to the trade) vintage Venetian glass. Lucky for us and convenient for the decorator! This grouping of tapered 1950s Italian cased glass vases are from a factory called Balboa.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
