While we all love a high profile art gallery opening, I often have my eye on the newest interior shops to hit the New York design scene. Here are three new storefronts I think will be among those furnishing tomorrow’s most luxurious New York City penthouses.
Holland & Sherry Bespoke
Famous for their fine menswear-inspired textiles, the Holland & Sherry brand recently opened its first New York City store at 209 Elizabeth Street in trendy Nolita (or as some like to call it, the new Soho).
The whimsical, Scottish-inspired shop is housed in the Elizabeth Street Gallery, which was designed by architect Eric Hilton. The store showcases a wide range of new home collections including custom-made furniture, hardware, rugs, embroideries and wallcoverings among other accessories.
Opened earlier this year, it’s a haven for high-end furnishings acquired from stagings, commercial sets and newly-upgraded homes. Owner Bruce Tilley described his inventory as, “anything from period antiques to midcentury to the ’70s, as well as new product,” all styled in tasteful vignettes.
Also this spring, the esteemed Turkish-based rug comapny, Stepevi unveiled its first North American location in the heart of Soho at 147 Wooster Street.
Known for their edgy, high-end rug designs and rich textures, Stepevi’s new storefront is a 2,500-square-foot space designed by international Mosque designer Zeynep Fadillioglu. As The New York Times noted, their Manhattan debut was inevitable after successful launches in Paris, London, Milan and Istanbul.
I recommend some window shopping at the very least.
