San Francisco-based design shop Sarlo is modeled after a Parisian apartment, with gorgeous antiques and new treasures populating each recess. Owner Gabriella Sarlo was an avid collector long before she opened her store in 2008, often scouring flea markets around the world for rare, period-specific furnishings and artisan-crafted curios, art, jewelry, and textiles. Her specialty is creating beautiful vignettes to showcase each piece, and her design aesthetic has landed her in the pages of top shelter magazines such as <i>Architectural Digest</i> and <i>Elle Decor</i>.
Aspen is famed for its rustic-meets-swanky aesthetic. Bring that look home by mixing materials that evoke the American West, like horn, wood, and hammered silver. In this selection you’ll find everything you need to bring the look to life, including cowhide rugs, antler chandeliers, horn-and-silver serving trays, and casual rugs adorned with Southwestern motifs in rich colors and prints.
“We all crave the familiar,” says Gilt Home’s Editorial Director Tom Delavan, “but we don’t want to live in a time capsule.” Delavan considers Edwardian design style — the uncluttered style that blossomed in England around 1900 in reaction to overstuffed, fussy Victorianism — as a touchstone for this nostalgia. Today there’s a trend toward Neo-Edwardian style, the classic Edwardian look pared down even more to fit the way we live today. It indulges our need for nostalgic design without the appearance of frumpiness, according to Delavan. “People want old stuff,” he says, “but they want to prolong the illusion that they’re not turning into their parents.”
