Fine Specimens of Ceramics and Glass

  The New York Ceramics & Glass Fair closed to healthy sales and good attendance in January, not a surprise given the beautiful objects d’art and antiques I’m using to illustrate this post, though it certainly is given the blizzard that took over New York City the weekend it debuted. Even slight foot-traffic would have […]

Let’s Go to the Dogs!

I have been planning this post featuring a roundup of excellent pet décor products for a while and it has been fun collecting standouts that I believe will please the dog lover who prefers chic, sophisticated interiors. As a bonus, these are all excellent holiday gifts for those of us who adore the canine character. […]

Delight in Store at 1514 Home

Cheryl Kees Clendenon, DGD, is the owner of 1514 Home and lead designer for In Detail Interiors.

My […]

The Valentine’s Day-themed offerings organized by an inventive group of antiques dealers […]

New Art from vanCollier

Style. You know it when you see it. It’s either in a designer’s DNA or not. Taste. It’s as obvious as the difference in daylight and dark, and, when it’s inborn, it’s an unstoppable force. I saw both of these attributes the first time I walked into the vanCollier booth in The Salon section at […]

Currey & Company’s Winterthur Collection

During my trip to High Point Market several weeks ago, Bethanne Matari and Cecil Adams of Currey & Company introduced me to Kristin DeMesse, the director of licensed products at Winterthur Museum. I was excited to find out more about the Delaware cultural institution that houses a remarkable collection of American antiques and decorative objects […]
