You’ll think you’ve stepped inside a posh studio apartment upon entering this petite antiques shop, the brainchild of former fashion publicist Tom Dunn and plus-size model Molly Kavanagh. The pair have arranged their decades-spanning finds from around the country into mock sitting-room, dining-room and kitchen displays, but it won’t appear that way for long: Every two to three months, the store will revamp its entire look from stock to styling. The current installation will get an overhaul in late May by guest designer Scott Sanders, who plans to turn the small shop into the perfect beach bungalow, filled with bright colors and linens that would be equally at home in the Hamptons or Hamilton Heights. On a recent visit, we mentally made space in our apartments for a Germanic asymmetrical wood mirror ($2,800), a pair of glass-and-metal flower lamps ($495) and a green glass decanter set striped with inlaid gold ($350).
