Richard Mishaan's shop gets a new home base.
What Can You Tell Us About Your Shop?
Homer is a place that will be re-imagined seasonally to reflect the way we live in each of the four seasons. I see it as a place to find ideas and seek inspiration. You will be able to find a variety of things at different prices but that all reflect a design vision and a moment in time.
Who Is Your Customer?
Homer is for the art collector, collectible furniture aficionado and everyone in between.
Do You Have a Signature Piece or Aesthetic?
I am a collector myself and have discovered and featured some of the best designers in the world. I was first to bring the work of Olivier Gagnere, Herve Van der Straeten, Francois Champsaur, Eric Schmitt, and so many others to America. I was able to offer items from the estate of Tony Duquette and other design greats. So I think that the key to what I do is allow my clients to discover these masters when I do and partake in teh value of buying their items while they are still affordable. I have people tell me with great excitement that what they bought several years ago for a reasonable price is now worth a fortune.
