YEW TREE HOUSE ANTIQUES

During my years with Albert Hadley, I loved shopping with him to find interesting things for his clients. As you might imagine, that time under his mentorship has had such a major influence on my own aesthetic. The wildly eclectic Hadley was drawn to pieces with personality, and he always managed to find the most sublime things wherever he was. He did have his favorite haunts, though. Take for instance, Yew Tree House Antiques — located slightly off the beaten track at 414 East 71st Street here in town, they’re known for their assortment of “Antiques of Character.” One is always guaranteed a sensational surprise – there you’ll find the unusual, the witty, and the superb.

I approach design as a couturier would, creating highly personal environments for my clients. My mission has always been to delight the senses, and to create the perfect backdrop for the good-life. Needless to say, I’m hugely reliant on shops like Yew Tree House Antiques to realize this mission. I recently found a fabulous English Arts and Crafts fender seat for a client and stopped by Yew Tree House Antiques to see what other treasures they might have — I was quite taken with the remarkable collection of 52 carved miro wood fish (top) made as souvenirs from Pitcairn Island. I can easily envision these displayed on a massive wall in a client of mine’s Montauk home.

Suitably attired for a warm Spring day, I’m sporting a Tom Ford palest pink silk suit, brown and pale pink floral print cotton shirt, brown and ivory silk glen plaid pocket square, brown leather belt with rose gold buckle and brown suede tasseled loafers, vintage Rolex, and my fragrance is Creed Acqua Originale – Vetiver and Geranium https://www.creedboutique.com/creed-acqua-originale-collection/203-vetiver-geranium.html

    Cheers,
