Saturday morning Mr. Madge indulgently accompanied Madge to a mid-century nirvana – 1stdibs@NYDC. If you haven’t heard of 1stdibs.com, it’s the online source for upscale antiques and vintage pieces. Starting 10 years ago with just furniture, the site now encompasses everything from clothes to jewelry to homes.
A few years ago 1stdbs opened up a showroom on the 10th floor of the New York Design Center. Although the NYDC is “to the trade only”, anyone may take the ride up to the 10th floor 1stdibs galleries. Of course you better come holding some major green.
Madge and Mr. wandered the floor agog at the selection and also at the prices. Here are some of our favorites.
Well after this tour Madge was positively verklempt and Mr. had to quickly convey her to the nearest refreshment stand and ply her with champagne until she recovered.
