On Friday I spent an hour or so ooing and awing over beautiful antiques and vintage pieces at the Newel Antique Galleries. The purpose was to find rental pieces for work but also to get inspired for upcoming installations. Mission accomplished, I just about died at every turn. Open to the trade, and maybe the public by appointment, this gallery has been featured in Elle Decor, DuJour Magazine and used as a rental source by numerous cinema companies in addition to brands like Bergdorf Goodman and Ralph Lauren. It was like heaven on earth for my imagination. WORTH THE TRIP. Here are a few of my favorite sights and pieces. Enjoy.
