Reed All About It
Here's an unusual one...this perfectly square shaped Italian bowl is made by fusing dozens of glass rods together to form a solid object. This is the first time I think I've seen this technique, and the result is such saturated color that it appears to be plastic....that is until you touch it. The texture gives it a reed or bamboo look and feel. 12" square

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!
