About Face

Every interior should have a touch of the eclectic and one thing we are known for here is the unexpected. A great example of this type of whimsy is this 1960s Egyptian-style glass bust by Sweden's Erik Höglund for Kosta.

Glossy Glass

We just sort of rediscovered this periodical called Philistine, which is edited by one of our favorite prop stylists - David de Quevedo - and little did we know he had put us on the cover! While this copy, Winter 2015, is a past issue, it just turned up on the magazine rack of a recently opened West Village specialty shop called Clover Grocery. Featured above is a chic collection of cased glass from Empoli, Kastrup, and Murano in a color palette that remains very much in fashion.

Rare Pair

Conical vases by Aldo Londi for Bitossi, Italy, circa 1950s - notice the fine fluting, or 'sgraffito' in Italian, and the nice shot of shiny saffron colored glaze inside to contrast the chocolate brown matte exterior.
