This was a must see shop on my New York list.  I got onto it from Sibella Court's book "Etcetera" which I thoroughly recommend. Sibella lived and worked in New York before returning to Australia and includes some New York shopping destinations which are congruent with her eclectic style.  John Derian Company Inc. is one of them.

If you know Sibella's work you will understand the attraction.  She loves layer on layer of treasured objects arranged in little vignettes. As these photos will attest, John Derian has a similar aesthetic.

He collects furniture and objects from around the world, from different eras and a variety of styles.  His decoupage plates, trays and paperweights may be of interest.

There are two shops. One full to bursting with homewares (above) and the other with furniture and textiles(below).

This is a destination store as it sits in a tiny street with no other shops around it. So put the address into your New York Itinerary and make a B line for it.  

6&8 East 2nd Street  

New York. Ph. (212) 677 8406

P.S. I managed to walk the whole length of Bleeker Street (no hardship) to get there.  Just when I thought it was safe to go out of the house without seeing a pumpkin.......
