Born into a family in textiles, Lisa Perry studied at FIT, planning to work in the family business. Instead, she launched her own showroom in early 2007. Less than two years later, she converted it into this shop where the wares are split evenly between sixties and seventies vintage goods, her own designs, and other contemporary items in keeping with her spirited style. The large, second-story, white-walled loft is set up like an apartment, with a living area with a rare Eero Saarinen chair, a fully made bed, a white tiled bathroom, a modern lacquered kitchen, and a children’s area with a table, chairs, and coloring set for kiddies in tow. Although not all of these decorations are for sale, some—like the children’s chairs—can be ordered. Against the shop’s white walls are racks and shelves of eye-catching women’s clothes and accessories--wool double-knit jersey dresses with rainbow stripes, and orange, circular patent-leather purses. Shoppers can also outfit their homes with Ingo Maurer Campbell-soup-can light fixtures, vintage Georges Briard vinyl ice buckets, and Hellerware stackable dishes in bright colors.
