Eneby Antiks • The Compound

On The Crush List because…

Every single thing in this booth out in the country belongs in an ultra-chic loft in the city.  Or in your home, if you think you also belong in an ultra-chic loft in the city.

Eneby was the first place I saw a push for vintage gymnasium equipment.  Two or three shows ago their booth was filled with those gorgeous wood and leather pommel horses that then showed up in every issue of House Beautiful and Elle Decor.  If you’re wondering what you’ll be seeing everywhere next year, my money is on the chaise longue.  (Yes, according to Wikipedia and those who know, that is the correct spelling.)

While we’re trending, I predict that the current popularity of vintage Hemlock apothecary bottles will inspire a rash of odd scientific models.  Many around the show this spring are medical, but I prefer Eneby’s more tasteful botanical choices.  At least I hope these are botanical.

On a final note: Victoria has her secrets. Ours may be slightly different.

Pure Marfa • CLOSED

On The Crush List because…

A bit of Marfa in the soup brings out the flavor!

The fashionable Pure Marfa booth reminded me of something I need to share:  I forget to look at jewelry.

I’m not proud of the fact, it just is what it is.  So remember as you look through The Crush List  that you are seeing far less jewelry than actually exists in Round Top, both during the show and all year.

Fortunately, these  Vintage Marfa Peso Necklaces did jump out amongst all the distractions (hey, huge stacks of knock off ghost chairs in the booth next door I’m talking about you).  And the story behind them is kind of cool.  They’re flattened pesos, inspired by the popular childhood pastime of flattening pennies on Marfa’s railroad tracks.

Obviously, if you want to be purely Marfa, quality leathergoods have got to get into the mix.  I fell for the pair of stained glass style neo-geo vaguely Pendleton laser cut leather pillows.
