One of the real bonasus of working in this field is watching the clever, creative, gifted  people (I happen to know) come up with incredible new ideas. One such idea was the first brick and mortar space for the online giant 1stdibs . Jim Druckman was the genius behind it! 

This all took place years ago. 1stdibs is now a destination for many designers and collectors alike. It is an eclectic mix of over 54 different dealers from around the country and world that occupy the entire 10th floor of 200 Lex  in 33,000 sq feet of space. It is one of my special,  wonderful secrets. There is ALWAYS something new and exciting here!!!!  The following are just a few of my latest favorite things....



Spring is finally blooming and our city is starting to look much more green, colorful, and alive again. This calls for a trip to the NYC Flower District! Recent projects have required shopping for fresh flowers and plants to liven up a space and the first place that comes to mind is W28th street between 6th and 7th Avenues. The flower district originally spanned a series of blocks but today is reduced to one entire city block lined with a plethora of florist wholesalers. I call this a "one stop shop" because you can find anything from a 6 foot living ficus tree, fresh flowers, to forever-lasting silk plants and all potting accessories to go with them. This is where the pros go! Take a look at some images from our most recent visit:
