One of the most intriguing categories of modernism is the art and architecture of the Brutalist movement. A defiant aesthetic based on disruptive forms, rough edges, and general rule-breaking.

Here is an example of a wall hanging made of individual puzzle-like pieces of pottery, assembled in a dramatic landscape of textures and colors, set in an artist designed original natural wood frame. It is signed "June" - an unknown American artist, likely made in the late 60s.

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!
