Whenever anyone asks me about my favorite designer from the vast selection we carry I always say Alfredo Barbini of Murano and of all of his work, the orange pieces with the controlled bubbles and gold top my list. Pieces like this compote were made in Venice in the 1950s for the luxury American market. Nobody else does this color that can only be described as Barbini Orange, a kind of reddish deep coral that is one of his signatures. Thirteen inches tall.

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!
