1st Dibs in NYC

1stDibs, the go-to online vintage furniture marketplace, just went from virtual paradise to the coolest (and most upscale) antique mall ever. Taking over the entire 10th floor of the New York Design Center, 53 dealers from the US, Canada, Paris, and London have filled over 33,000 square feet with pure furniture heaven. The added bonus? NYDC’s owner and our good friend Jim Druckman opened the new space to the public on Saturdays! Check out the goods at 200 Lexington Avenue at 33rd Street in NYC.







The Last Lions



Last Saturday, we attended a moving and inspiring talk by acclaimed film makers, Derek and Beverly Joubert. The pair have devoted their lives to documenting Africa’s big cats and this film–which took them four years to make–is a call to action. As noted in the film, lion numbers have dropped from 450,000 to 20,000 in the last 50 years, a number almost too startling to comprehend. Their filming, researching and partnership with National Geographic has created The Last Lions, one of the most moving documentaries we have seen in years.



As devoted fans of nature, lovers of all big cats, and die hard adventurers, we hope you will join us in support of saving one of our world’s most beautiful animals.



Proceeds from the film will go toward National Geographic’s “Big Cats Initiative”, which aims to help prevent the loss of habitat for lions and other large cats, which can require up to 100 miles of hunting ground for a single pride. For each viewing of the trailer on YouTube, $0.10 will be donated toward the cause up to 1,000,000 views (current views stand at about 150,000). You can also learn more or donate at CauseanUproar.org, or follow the organization on Twitter @CauseanUproar.

Scouting This Week



We have been uptown, downtown and all over town this week in pursuit of some killer goods for our clients. Take a look at some of finds we spotted along the way.













If We Lived on Fantasy Island…

Just a bit of (serious) day dreaming. If we won the lottery and had the afternoon off to play, here are our wish lists of what we’d wear/drive/carry. Now the question is…where would we go!?
NICKI’S WISH LIST:


The 50th Anniversary Edition of the Shelby Cobra.

This beautiful Yves Saint Laurent ensemble would make me very, very happy.

If I had to get rid of all my jewelry and could have only one piece to ever wear, this would be it.

Just enough room for some lipstick and cash in this fantastic evening bag by Alexander McQueen.

This Elie Tahari sandal is the perfect shoe to complete the outfit…

I’ve decided that a drive along the Amalfi Coast would do just fine…

CALLIE’S WISH LIST

Why walk when you can drive a Land Rover Defender. I’ll take one in black please.

Just need my boots, and I am Dries Van Noten safari ready.

But, you know, come to think of it, these would do…

This killer cuff does double duty as a wrist guard and goes with everything.

I think I can put a fitting amount of fabulousness in this bag.


The fabulous life is exhausting. Pardon me as I lounge on my patio.



Andrew Michael Geller



Andrew Michael Geller’s love of nature’s beauty helped mold him into one of the greatest architects of our time. As chief architectural designer and vice president of Raymond Loewy Associates in New York, he helped design NYC’s Lever House, Macy’s Department Stores and Lord & Taylor. But, it was his summer houses in the Hamptons and Fire Island that started our obsession. Geller’s designs were economical, easy to construct, and easy to seal up at the end of the season. The houses defined a new era of modernism on the beach.
