  • Modern anthology New york (Other, Gifts)

There is the evocative furniture, ranging from antique carpentry tables to a grand, tufted “library” sofa. And a selection of wares so varied that a man could conceivably… More info

  • Scandinavian design house New york (Other, Gifts)
  • Scandinavian Design House – not to be confused with Scandinavia House, a cultural center in Manhattan – is the brainchild of Swedish-born-Brooklynite Fredrik Wide. Wide opened the shop in 2009, after noticing the absence of any good interior décor shops in the area.
