For our celebrity shopping feature this week, we spoke with skin-care founder Linda Rodin, whose new fragrance, Rodin 3 Eau de Toilette, is now available. When she agreed to a video tour of her Chelsea apartment, we knew we’d be arriving at the home of someone with extraordinary taste. We didn’t know just …how many tasteful things she’d accumulated. Here, a special edition — you might call it an extended cut — of all the things Linda Rodin can’t live without.
So many things around the apartment are John Derian — this big Indian cabinet I have in the kitchen, or this poodle plate I just bought (doesn’t it remind you of Winky?). I’ve just been going there for years, and I always manage to find something that I’ll love and want to bring back.
My fridge came from a store that no longer exists that used to be on 18th Street. It actually just sold refrigerators. They had all their stock outside; and one day I was walking outside, I saw the color of the fridge, and I said, “I want that one.”
I used to buy any candy that was funny, so I bought these gummy burgers. I’ve had candy teeth, hot dogs, everything.
This couch was a floor model I think. I just walked in and walked out with it. We call it the Blue Couch [editor’s note: The exact shade of blue can be customized in-store], and even did a series on it for Instagram. I like to come here in the afternoon when the light comes in and it’s really beautiful. My dog, Winky, has peed all over it, but it’s still super comfortable.
