5 Best Booths at the Winter Antiques Show in New York

Blouin

‘One of the strongest works in this booth is in fact underfoot: a rug by English textile designer C.F.A. Voysey, working in the Arts & Crafts style. The piece depicts an elaborate floral pattern and dark-leaved bramble dyed with deep purples, blues, and greens. Following the organic motif, the gallery has also included a leather-topped writing desk designed by Gustav Stickley, of the American chapter of the Arts & Crafts movement. Atop the oak table sits a rippled green glass “turtleback” shade from Tiffany Studios New York. Finally, a wrought iron fire screen and andirons dating from 1930 are made by the renowned American blacksmith Samuel Yellin, with the straight rows of decorative pillars on the screen unfurling like little plants.’
