Profile

This venue is closed.

This vintage furniture boutique is Art Deco inside and out. Don’t expect anything produced after the Carter administration: Skyscraper specializes exclusively in American and European furnishings from the 1930s to the 1970s. Depending on the week, you might happen upon Robsjohn-Gibbings armchairs with a cherrywood frame or a scalloped silver-plated mirror designed in the 1960s. With a European buyer who scouts out deals, space is an invaluable resource for hard-to-locate pieces that ooze sophistication. Timeless distinction is the underlying theme here. Glass cases are filled with porcelain gravy boats, Murano glass, and Tommi Parzinger candlesticks, while chandeliers from four decades crowd the ceiling. Stop in often—merchandise arrives from overseas weekly and is snapped up faster than you can ask, “What era?”
