At this point, the news of another twentieth-century furniture, accessories, and art shop is more likely to elicit rolled eyes than run-don’t-walk excitement. But Alan Rosenberg—Works of Art is an exception. With a master’s in the history of design from FIT, Rosenberg had been dealing in these pieces from home for several years, but when his collections took over his apartment, he decided that perhaps a gallery space was a good idea. His new digs are so small (10 people would be a crowd) that it seems more like a private home than like a store. Rosenberg's attracted to the unique, like the pair of circa-1950 biomorphic lamps by Sheldon Gants for Kroywen with new custom-made shades and the modernist chairs from Greene and Hinkle, a decorating and design firm based in Beverly Hills in the fifties.
