Just arrived (and freshly rewired) are this pair of American icons in the Brutalist style. Dating to the 1970's and by the Italian designer Maurizio Tempestini for the Laurel Lighting Co. They are in an aged gold finish over a white metal base and are quite reminiscent of the Paul Evans aesthetic making such a huge come-back in interior design. Monumental @ 49" to the top of the shade.

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 daily... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
