Back in Barneys

Never has our glass been used in a more appropriate fashion - the key word being fashion! A finely curated collection, hand-selected by Neo-Mod maven Lisa Perry to coincide with the launch of her new housewares line. Premiering today in the Chelsea Passage section of Barneys New York's flagship on Madison Ave, comes a Summer-of-Love-ly collection of primary colored items to brighten your picnic, BBQ, garden party, or urban terrace get togethers. Our groovy glass and ceramics lend historic reference to the inner-workings of the creative mind of Lisa Perry and her always swinging pop-art style.

Deluxe Accommodations

On occasion we will be asked by an important interior designer, such as Nicole Fuller, to help stage an apartment to illustrate the luxury one might afford when investing in the rarified world of Manhattan real estate. These decked out deluxe apartments at 17 East 12th St are listed through Douglas Elliman, in case you have the inclination (and budget is no object), one could presumably offer to purchase these beautiful spaces fully furnished! All decorative accessories, vases, & sculptures provided by The End of History.

Showing Off The Show House

This year, we were doubly honored to be asked by not one, but two renowned designers, to contribute our vintage goods to their beautiful rooms at the 44th annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House which benefits the Boys and Girls Club. Above is Phillip Thomas' "Lady Lair" featuring a virtual alter to our 1950s Bitossi ceramic collection, an emerald green faceted Murano bowl, and an art deco Danish vase.  Below is Timothy Whealon's dreamy bedroom accented by our 19th Century Japanese garden stools topped by a lavender Barbini Murano bowl.
If you can make it, it's well worth a visit!

You Go Swirl

Seguso in triplicate. One of the tastiest colors and patterns to come out of 1960s Italy. Murano glass is rarely this mod and playful. Juicy shades of orange with the coolest ball stoppers. It would be great for these three to stay together after all these years.

Seguso Stunners

A perfect pair of Murano lamps, in a golden-minty hue from the Seguso glass studio, circa 1950. The minimalist conical shape make these lamps oh-so-chic in their simplicity. The original bases are an added designer benefit.
