The Power of Towers
Architectural models of German Radio/TV towers from the mid-century.
Hand lathed and made from a mix of materials, from bronze to copper to
stainless steel - a few which incorporate plastic or Lucite elements to
replicate the look of windows. The top group even features our first ever lamp version. Creating these were a prerequisite for graduating architecture
school in Germany and some of these models went on to be realized as genuine
structures throughout Germany. Sizes here range from 5.5" to 20"

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!
