With its winding staircase, marble floors, and graceful chandeliers, this two-story Upper East Side space feels more like one of the nearby townhouses than the high-end antique shop that it is. Although Linda Horn operates the store with her two sisters, it is her discerning eye that finds the furniture, mirrors, and decorative accessories that compose its breathtakingly extensive stock. The store’s specialty is nineteenth-century European antiques, but the siblings say their shop is also known for its English and French Majolica ceramic pottery. Also on hand is a large array of English silver trophies, Chinese pedestals decorated in the cloisonné-enamel style, and re-creations of nineteenth-century Palissy wareóbasically plates decorated with turtles and frogs. Though the shop’s current location is four times larger space its former space at 79th Street and Madison Avenue, it’s still not nearly enough to contain all the holdings. The rest are stored in a 14,000-square-foot warehouse in Westchester.
