Over the weekend, I attended an event in New York city and was lucky enough to squeeze in a visit to Vicente Wolf’s, VW Home showroom.
The first thing that caught my eye, upon entering, was the East wall of the showroom from which beautiful antique window pane frames were hanging. I particularly fell in love with the pale blue weathered ones and the square one with the geometric design (in the center).
These 3 wooden saddles are mounted onto wrought iron stands.
And I couldn’t resist taking a photo of these little chairs grouped into three:
The showroom is filled with artifacts from Vicente’s world travels and feels like the most intimate museum you could imagine visiting. Vicente’s own photography is also on display and captivated me. I had the great pleasure of meeting and conversing with Trudi Romeo. Trudi has been working with Vicente for about 37 years now, which I found to be a remarkable testament to who this man is. Trudi walked me through the showroom and made me feel like I was visiting a friend’s home.
The VW Home showroom is in the Garment District, my old stomping grounds (when I was buying/merchandising in the fashion industry), so I felt right at home. I got out of a cab at 39th & 8th Avenue, right at my old Starbucks and walked down to No. 333. I felt like an Elvis fan on her way to Graceland, and left with a huge smile on my face!
