Winter Antiques Show

The Winter Antiques Show , one of the most prestigious antiques shows in the country, is currently underway in New York. Held at the Seventh Regiment Armory, the show benefits the East Side House Settlement and runs from January 19-28. Exhibitors include some of the most illustrious antiques dealers in the country: Hyde Park Antiques; Kentshire Galleries; Leigh Keno; and Mallett.

I was looking at's coverage of the event, and there were two booths that caught my eye: those of Elle Shushan and Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz.

Shushan, based in Philadelphia, deals in American, English, and Continental portrait miniatures. Her site features a wide array of these miniatures which are truly charming. I like how she painted her booth pink and then added faux architectural features in black. Although the booth is far more theatrical than those of other dealers, I thought it was the perfect backdrop to display her wares.

Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz is an antique wallpaper panel dealer with offices in New York and Paris. Unfortunately, her website is still under construction, but you can see some examples of antique paper panels on her homepage. The two examples below are also on her homepage. How amazing would it be to see her inventory in person?
