Troy: European and American Furniture – CLOSED
As far as we are aware, this store is now closed. 8-19-2008 – CB
When it used to be in SoHo, it was so nice to step into Troy and see the beautiful things. Their collection is exquisite and covers nearly all of the modern classics. Now that it’s fled the neighborhood, it’s harder to get to, but they probably don’t mind – anyone with this much money will probably send their decorator.
Their selection is high end, but displays great taste with a penchant for the unusual. They are called “cool, offbeat mix of mid-century Danish stuff and earthier contemporary designs.” (NYMag)
What is fun about Troy is its mix and match modernism – a fortunate student’s work can be found next to an iconic Arne Jacobsen chair.
The whopper price tags shouldn’t come as a shock, but favorites include Hans Wegner’s finest chairs ($1000+), the one piece, wall mount web desk (@ $1790), and their aptly named MoMA collection.
