An archive of news and design ideas from the mid-century modern furnishing experts of Manhattan's The End of History.

I often talk to clients about form over function. So many of our pieces are objects of great beauty with decoration as their main purpose. Then there are those that serve a duel design role, such as this vintage Cenedese vessel circa 1960. It is lovely to look at, with its subtle golden striations, yet as useful a vase as one might desire. Tall enough at 13.5" for long stems and with a 6.5" square shaped opening...great for a generous display of flowers.

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!
