After more than twenty years of collective experience in the wholesale market, in 2007 Manuela Ayers, Angela Butler, and Jen Dolan decided to tackle home furnishings on their own terms, importing a variety of high-end materials from Italy and creating the Vellum collection. Crystal decanters, ceramic busts, porcelain dinnerware—Vellum offers a functional but eye-catching assortment of luxury goods. Every piece is designed and created in the trio’s SoHo offices, giving classic forms a deliciously contemporary spin.
Pewter lends a stately, classic quality to an interior, and these timeless pieces are true to that tenet. From bowls and platters to frames and flatware, every piece in this sale is worked by hand in Italy and makes an exquisite accent — a counterpoint to a modern design scheme, or a lush complement to a traditional one — to virtually any room in the home.
If you’re a stylish fella — or looking for the perfect gift for the sophisticated man in your life — these beautifully illustrated, well-written books are a coffee table must. Architecture, design, fashion, luxury brands — many of the makings of the good life are represented in this selection.
Make these artisan-made, luxurious linens an entertaining mainstay this season. Festive colors and playful patterns add winking panache while the solid-color options give your table a sophisticated twist.
Combining traditional craftsmanship and European refinement, this elegant Argentine tableware is uniquely exotic: Think alpaca metal pitchers and trays with horn handles, metal-and-black-onyx coasters, and a host of sculptural bowls.
