Behind The Candelabra
I'm anticipating renewed interest in this over-the-top baroque style after seeing Steven Soderbergh's "Behind The Candelabra" - the critical darling based on the life of Liberace, currently airing on HBO. Illustrious illumination from Barovier & Toso,circa 1950. This type of lamp is reserved for the daring decorator with a flair for the fancy. Giant to the top of the drum shade - 47"

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!
