The End of History

Store Review

Long a favorite of some of New York's top prop stylists and editors, we were a little surprised to discover we had never given the West Village's The End of History a proper shop tour. EoH specializes in mid-century art glass, arranged in unique, at times arresting combinations.

From the shop's blog: "There is nothing quite like the fabulous lines and sensual shapes of the vintage hand blown glass and rare ceramics and furniture found at 'The End of History'. I opened my shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we like to think we've cornered the market on the mid-century aesthetic with more glass from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world."

EoH is the perfect spot for affordable, interesting gifts for the people on your holiday list who might be a little more difficult to shop for. It also offers also offers wonderful opportunities for inspiration; Stephen Saunders, the proprietor, offers the story that Nike once flew out a team of it's designers from Oregon to peruse the shop for color ideas.

We're especially loving these blocky, gem-like Flavio Poli bud vases and bowls.
