One of the highlights of the Decor Aid studio’s SoHo location is our proximity to one of New York’s top home decor, Michele Varian. It’s a modern curio shop with unique, handcrafted finds from around the world. Varian initially opened the store to showcase the decorative silk pillows she made, but she valued the work and craftsmanship of other artists so much that she began displaying her work alongside her own. Since then, Michele has outgrown that first place on Crosby Street and moved a couple of streets to a much larger room on Howard Street. She has also gone beyond cushions and designed everything from lighting fixtures to upholstered furniture. When not in New York, you can still get Michele Varian’s experience online. Here are some of our favorite picks.
Gold side table
More a sculpture than a side table, this piece is handcrafted from solid maple wood with a gold metallic finish in Detroit by Alex Drew & No One.
