new york day 2

The Gift Show at the Javitts Center and Piers was, on the whole, a disappointment. There is very little furniture and the gifts and accessories were for the most part geared to smaller stores than ours or to large chains selling smaller items.

The highlights of the day were visits to Stickley Furniture, ABC Furniture, MacKenzie Childs, and Henri Bendel. Pictures to follow.

Hotel Elysee

Built in the 1920's, the Hotel Elysée in New York City is named for one of the finest French Restaurants of that era. Today Hotel Elysée has been home to movie stars, artists, writers and intellectuals. George Clooney stayed here recently and shot scenes of the movie Michael Clayton across the street. The ground floor of the hotel is home to the equally well-known restaurat, The Monkey Bar where celebrity spotting is always in vogue. Hotel Elysée is located on East 54th Street between Park and Madison Avenues and is an oasis of luxury, elegance and calm in bustling Midtown Manhattan; the vibrant heart of New York City.
