I love a good treasure hunt, and where better to seek out beautiful treasures than New York City? We spent an entire day immersed in design, fun and fascinating treasures last month. Come along with us!
A gorgeous chandelier. One of the prettiest I’ve seen.
A precious little bird house. I wish I had a place for it!
Simple design makes a grand statement.
This chair contained a card that read do not touch. The chair looked so fragile I wondered what would happen if someone sat down in it.
This desk looked like it would be at home in the 1930s. I kinda dug it.
These magical things fascinated me. Oh, you wonder what they are?
Here’s the explanation. Not cheap, either, or I’d own one.
Terrible shot of a chandelier that would look fabulous in my dining room. A little smaller, though.
What home doesn’t need a wing(ed) chair? 😉
Or a silver bulb?
I once had bowls almost like these.
“What’s Angela Davis’ face doing on a pillow?” I thought, when I saw this. (It’s actually Michael Jackson.)
I knew who this was. I just didn’t know who’d want him on a pillow.
So modern…but what’s the Travelocity gnome doing here?
And this modern but retro porcelain stood out.
A big mess of chandeliers gives us a big finish. The photo doesn’t do them justice. Gorgeous and pricey.
All photos taken at ABC Carpet & Home on Broadway in Manhattan. Don’t let the name fool you. Seven or eight floors of gorgeousity. (Yes I made that word up.)
