I need to start this post with… If you’ve never been to Maison 24 and love really edgy modern art and unique eclectic home decor pieces (and have a high decorating budget), you need go!

Started by bother and sister duo, Allison Julius and Louis Marra, the store is a reflection of their travels around the globe and selects of unique products, as well as design their own items. Maison 24 brings together products and designs, artist exclusives (like Dobner) that are modern, traditional, serious, and quirky in a unique and oh-so-hip, setting.

My familiarity with the store bridges from references to their original Bridgehampton’s location. It wasn’t until receiving an invitation for the launch of Rory Dobner premiering a shop-in-shop at Maison 24, that I realized they have an NYC location (which launched last July).

As for Rory Dobner, international man of art who has worked and exhibited in the UK, USA, Australia, Haiti, Hong Kong, and New Zealand before returning to the UK in 2005 and setting up a studio in Hampstead, London. Rory has completed a variety of impressive commissions and interior design projects in the U.S. including Soho House and Agent Provocateur and has also been commissioned to do projects for will.i.am, Kate Moss, and Robert Downey Jr. And now as of last week, his work resides in a little boutique in the back room of Maison 24.

Ahhhhh! Not since I used to hang out at Leila Sham‘s apartment have I wanted a home makeover so badly! There are so many cool, unique pieces. It was everything I expected and more (including the price tag). Le sigh. Someday…
