Alberto Villalobos and Mercedes Desio wanted an auspicious name when they opened their antiques store in the economically challenging month of September 2008, so they chose Etós, derived from the Mediterranean Etesian winds, which were purported to bring growth and prosperity. Customers are welcomed by the tennis-ball-toting Osiris, Desio's Boston terrier, and the owners greet regulars by name. The lightly perfumed store focuses on international antiques, accessories, and furniture, especially from Villalobos's native Colombia, Desio's native Italy, France, and the Americas. The selection of mostly beige and brown couches, benches, and chairs, are brightened by colorful accessories like red lacquer trays, hand-carved bowls and statues, and rainbow-striped pillows. Antique magnifying glasses—an obsession of Villalobos’s—can be found on almost every surface. Larger pieces, like bedroom furniture, aren't kept in the store due to space constraints, but they are available upon request. Villalobos and Desio jet off regularly for buying trips and furniture fairs, so the stock is updated regularly.


Desio and Villalobos also offer interior-design services and will supervise everything from decorating a single room to gutting an entire apartment.
