Once more of a fixture in tabloid pages than shelter mags, globe-trotting socialite Nina Griscom has found a home in collecting beautiful, unusual home accessories for her namesake shop. Many of her stylish pieces (some are new, others vintage finds) incorporate the shapes and skins of exotic creatures: zebra-hide cushions, silver-and-nautilus-shell saucières, candlesticks made from gracefully curved ram horns. There’s also an assortment of carved ivory boxes and bangles (all antique, made before the 1972 ban), and occasional tables covered in snakeskin or pressed tobacco leaves. Some of Griscom’s most dramatic objets, however, are actual fragments of zoological anatomy: mounted sawfish bills lined with rows of sharp teeth; smooth, fossilized ostrich eggs; and lustrous polished tortoiseshells, reimagined as wall hangings.
