Not all of us can catch a plane to Marrakech for a little shopping. Thankfully, we can get the experience with Kay McGowan. With 15 years as a buyer for a furniture importer, Kay guides us with her impeccable eye through Morocco's markets as she handpicks crafts and shares the stories of the people who make them.
For those who know Kay from her House Tour, A Curated World is the next best thing to shopping her space. From pillows and poufs to mirrors and mugs, they're all items she loves for the aesthetics and the ancestry. And each tray and blanket is made to order, handcrafted for you specifically.
That's not the only way A Curated World goes beyond being another shop. With videos and essays, Kay shares the stories of the items and its creator, and takes you on her travels across the globe, offering glimpses into foreign worlds as you learn about a cooking school in Marrakech or a the history of the caftan. So as you pick out a platter, you can plan your next exotic excursion.
