Richard Mishaan’s home furnishings shop which previously graced commercial space on Madison Avenue from 1997 until 2008 is back, now in the Village. Until the Whitney Museum reclaimed its space back in 2008, Mishaan was selling stylish furnishings, including contemporary, vintage and his own more moderately priced designs.
Homer, as the store is called, will be organized according to “vignettes” to give decorators ideas to work with on their own.
“I want to give people design ideas and start a dialogue,” he said.
Mishaan says he will change around the store four times year, according to the seasons.
“We’ll lighten things up for summer,” he said, “and have more-substantial pieces for the holidays.”
Mishaan designs home décor for Bolier and lighting for Urban Electric. The new Homer can be found at 56 University Place at East 10th Street. Call for more information: (212) 744-7705.
