the selby meets john derian.
the selby celebrates the new york home life of designer john derian on his blog this week, and it’s lovely, albeit a tad surprising. i think i was expecting something a bit less bohemian and a lot more polished. but don’t get me wrong — i quite like this pleasant surprise, and love the collector’s eclectic, cosy home. in the interview mister derian shares his favorite flea markets, and the treasures he’s found there — all of them uniquely special. in his NY studio he employs a small staff of artisans to assist with production of his line of handmade decoupage plates, platters, paperweights, coasters and bowls, sold online and at upscale home stores worldwide. The full range of John Derian pieces, including his ephemera and furniture line, is available at his own retail shops in the East Village along with vintage and antique imports, bed and table linens, lighting, and an ever-changing assortment of one-of-a-kind curios — hmmm, i wonder if he ever swaps those pieces out from his own home collection to sell — there’s a few i’m coveting! for the full wonderful home tour, visit the selby
