Last Wednesday we attended the grand opening party of the 1st Dibs showroom in the New York Design Center. The showroom, which occupies the entire 10th Floor, provides a physical presence in New York City for 53 national and international antique vendors and represents a wide array of fine antiques and 20th Century design. Needless to say, the party lived up to all of our expectations, and we enjoyed a night perusing beautiful vignettes filled with exquisite objects and socializing with our vendor friends. We are especially excited to see some of our favorite vendors represented in this space: Lumiere Inc., WYETH, and Milord Antiques to name a few.

Below are just a few of the objects that caught our eye:

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
