This large 1950s English cerused oak and rattan cabinet in a rustic modern style stands more than 8 feet high. Bottom part has four doors and interior shelves. I love the wicker panels that rest on a slab of travertine.

Tucked away in Tribeca is the design shop of interiors guru Steven Sclaroff (stevensclaroff.com). Known for his interiors around town, including hotels, retail shops and residential work, as well as product design for companies like Waterworks, Sclaroff also has his own space where he sells an inventory of vintage finds worthy of a museum. But don’t let the splendor of the pieces fool you, Sclaroff has a relaxed sensibility (don’t be afraid to sit on anything) and a wild sense of humor (don’t be afraid to get him talking and ask him about the framed Farrah Fawcett Majors Logan’s Run poster).

Last week, when I was visiting the shop, I eyed a few things, including some amazing sets of lamps (I am sure this will become a go-to destination for lamps), furnishings, artwork and accessories. We also had a chance to catch up on the renovation of his house in Connecticut. Browse his shop with me.

  • kevin,I always thought you were cool,but now that I know you have an affinity for squirrels,I know you are. I live in North Carolina,in the woods,so squirrels abound. I even trained one to come too my back door, wait until I come out with peanuts and feed it hand too mouth. Also,love the hanging lights.Are you really getting them? And do you know where they would go?.....
