like orange, emmerson-troop has a selection of vintage treasures and a few edited items of their own design, but their store has a bit more of an organic, californa vibe- being a california boy, we love that. (it's also bit ironic, since william emmerson, the store's owner and designer, was born in london- i guess the california vibe is international!).
m21's inner drag queen LOVES these witty cigarette tables with giant diamonds as table tops (an emmerson-troop original, available in several finishes). we see one in a ladies bath, next to an chic, modern, free-standing tub...
love this pair of blanc de chine lamps with some great custom shades. this style of lamp is a favorite 'classique' for m21- we have several in the 'permanent collection' here at the atelier (one in our work area, originally was our grandmother's) and they occasionally pop up in our marketplace as well!
we love these multi-globe vintage chandeliers, of which ET has several on the sales floor. the top one is *perfect* for a residential project on our drawing board, should it ever progress to reality. if not, maybe it's perfect for the atelier, too- we love it that much!
a selection of chandeliers and sconces.
how chic are these henry moore lithograph triptychs? again, we want!
m21 is mad for the vintage metalwork of phillip and kelvin la verne, particularly their etched bronze chinoiserie pieces like this coffee table, the perfect blend of traditional and modern, brutal and refined, and functional yet decorative. the laverne's work was never mass produced (limited editions) so is the kind of timeless furniture that will always remain both fashionable and valuable.
a bit of what we consider the store's "california vibe", exemplified by these driftwood poofs and a screen of emmerson's own design.
