Suzi West and Mary Jo Collier Pile moved their successful home-decor shop from Columbus, Ohio, to Brooklyn in order to grow their business in the city that has served as a source of inspiration to them for years. The pair have worked together for the past decade, curating goods for such big-box retailers as Limited Brands, Aéropostale and Kiehl’s before deciding to launch their own retail project in 2005. The store stocks one-of-a-kind furniture, antiques, jewelry and curiosities, imbued with luxury, humor and a passion for great style, culled from many different eras. West focuses her discerning eye (cultivated over years spent as a visual merchandiser and designer) on a unique mix of beautiful items created by artisans from around the globe, sourcing them from Midwest tag sales or on trips to Paris. Highlights include the brand’s rustic, custom-designed chandeliers made from hickory branches ($4,100), handmade necklaces from Velvet Antler by Maggie Smith ($425) and Pont Neuf ($288), Fornasetti porcelain plates ($200) and Match pewter martini glasses ($100 each). The next time you’re in a pinch for a gift, pick up Waverly and Irving handmade candles ($78) and cards by Erica DiPaolo, Blue Barnhouse and Bella Muse ($6–$13).
