Vintage Treasures From The Himalayas, India and Bolivia at maison kThese vintage treasures renew your room by adding a touch of time-tested beauty among the multitude of mass-produced products we touch every day.


Bolivian Alpaca Throw was in Santa Barbara Magazine’s “Cliff Dwellings” article, by Lori Porter, featuring Micholyn Brown‘s interior design of a recently restored Cliff May home in Montecito, CA.

Himalayan Wedding Chest with its hand-carved, bold, floral designs. Or a Metal-Clad Indian Urn, a true gem that’s created with a three-step, all hand-wrought process.

Hope to see you in the store soon so you can see the lovely details on these pieces.



vintage treasures for fall at maison k, santa barbara, caWe just received the wedding chests and urns (above) that I found on a jaunt in India. I found the Alpaca throws from Bolivia in New York City recently!  At the end of a long day hunting and gathering for Maison K – one of my favorite tried and true destinations for a fabulous meal in a handsome environment is the Mercer Kitchen at the Mercer Hotel in Soho.  I love going early evening to nab one of the few small tables upstairs, lobby level. This intimate, lofty space is light filled with a view into the stunning lobby lounge designed by Christian Liaigre on one side and the a steady stream of scenic people walking up and down the interior stairs heading to the main dining room below. Every meal created under the direction of über-chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, is splendid. It’s a serene civilized space in the midst of Manhatten.  Often, I will head a just a few blocks over to Angelika Film Center to enjoy a great movie and rest my feet for the next day of buying for Maison K!
