I've been a huge fan of Michele Varian's shop in Soho since the very first time I visited NYC. I was lucky enough to sort of stumble upon it and the collection of curiosities inside instantly drew me in. Since then, Michele has added to her own line in the shop, and it's the lighting - along with everything else - that is bringing me back to this favorite.
If I could have any (ANY) lamp sitting in my office right now it would be the one above. Clearly marked as my favorite. That modern deco styling is amazing, and the marble base the perfect finishing touch. But the whole line of lighting is really, truly stunnig. This is just a taste! There are some more classic styles mixed in with items like that top pendant that feel like they belong in a sophisticated Tiki lounge. (I mean that in the best way possible!) And the finishes on the metal are truly perfect.
But let's not stop there...
Michele's shop boasts a fun collection of ceramics, jewelry, accessories, pillows, art, her own textiles and more!
I'm slightly obsessed with that white bubble vase. Oh, and I forgot to mention her insane collection of Empoli glass in a huge variety of colors. I love they way they look clustered together! If you're ever in Manhattan, it's a must-stop in. Lucky for all of us, you can also shop online.
