Grey Area fills its soon-to-be Soho showroom* with beautiful trinkets and a clever assortment of oddities. Is it a necklace? Is it art? Can you wear it? “In general, I look for pieces that fall into the gray area between art and object. So art made functional or the functional made into art,” says co-founder and creative director Kyle DeWoody. “This can mean a unique piece, an edition, or something unlimited in production but limited where you can find it.” In the showroom, open to the public Tuesday through Saturday beginning March 8, you’ll find vintage lingerie with Swarovski accents, colorful kitted accessories, or mummified Barbies. Pictured here, a romantic chair sculpture, Motivating the Unmarried Flower, by Rosalie Morris, has whimsical accents and detailing. *The showroom is still undergoing styling, so these pictures are of its temporary space.

Shelves throughout Grey Area’s showroom are stacked with unique pieces. From top right, clockwise: Homemade Hermès Birkin Bag, by Shelter Serra, is an immediate eye-catcher. The spray bottles, Protosapien Mist Unit, by Saul Chernick, are a quirky interpretation of object into art. The chainlike silver knot sculpture by Orly Genger is titled Untitled. The metallic black bronze sculptures are by Caraballo-Farman and called Extractions Nos. 1 and 2. And last, the ice-cube bag is yet another fun object that blurs the line between commonplace household items and an artist’s unique interpretation of them; it’s called Pieces of the Floe, by Jonathan Seliger.
