What a wonderful way to kick off Spring! We were so excited to reveal our newly re-designed showroom featuring Schumacher Wallpaper, Fabric and Pillows. Friends and Clients turned out Thursday night to a fabulous party. It went late into the evening and guests shopped while the Champagne flowed. Yes indeed, Luxe knows how to throw a party.

We want to give a sincere THANK YOU to everyone who helped make it a resounding success. Thanks to the generosity of Schumacher, we even have a few gift bags and goodies left for clients that shop with us this weekend. So whether you order online or visit us in person, we have a gift bag for you!
Since some of you have asked, here are a few design details about our showroom. The star of the show is the Schumacher Wallpaper that we hung on accent walls. It is a favorite of Melissa's and looks beautiful with our Blue and White Chinoiserie Collections. Designed by Mark D. Sikes this Ikat Stripe has subtle striations and tonal variations that create extraordinary depth and dimension. It is also available as a fabric, which we will soon feature on beautiful upholstery pieces.
We paired it with Benjamin Moore Aura Paint color Polar Sky CC-790 in a matte finish. Melissa always uses Aura because it offers the ultimate in performance and color vitality.
Pro Tip - Never skimp on paint. The extra dollars spent on quality are worth the investment considering the time and labor involved. The Matte finish is the easiest to touch up or gently wipe away dirt or marks with a magic eraser.
Nothing pulls together a room as well a pair of beautiful pillows. No more waiting weeks for custom pillows, indulge in immediate gratification. A new set of pillows is the easiest way add a touch of beautiful color and pattern to invigorate your decor. Luxe Curations is the number one source for Designer Pillows on the Upper East Side. You can also shop our selection online.
For those who appreciate a touch of drama, we present the SNUG. The chicest little space tucked off our main sales floor comes alive with vibrant red leather studded bookshelves from the famed Gramercy Park Hotel. Accented with brass hardware, these custom made shelves are ready to be delivered to your home. Gaze upon them and reminisce about the glory days spent hobnobbing with celebs until the wee morning hours at the Rose Bar. Be the envy of your friends and neighbors and own a glamorous piece of NYC history. Oh if these shelves could talk...
We have styled them as our own Cabinet of Curiosities. Natural stones, shells and hand carved wood decor and accents from Africa to Bali. We think these shelves and would look amazing in your office.
