About Last Night: Gentleman/Budoir at Overbey & Dunn

25/08/2011 § Leave a comment

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the opening for the newest installation at Overbey & Dunn in the West Village.  Why do I love Overbey & Dunn so much?  Mainly because the owners — Tom Dunn and Molly Kavanagh — have embraced a concept (that I adore!) of constant recreation and evolution for their darling interior design boutique.  This may actually be a bit of an understatement, actually, as every 8 to 10 weeks, the shop undergoes a complete transformation all the way down to the light fixtures and the paint on the walls.  It then reopens with a new “theme,” stocked to the gills with gorgeous antique finds for the home, all of which are for sale.

Last night was the official launch of the latest installation, called “Gentleman/Budoir,” which was curated by designer Russell Piccione.  Far and away my favorite installation thus far, it is refined masculinity personified: deep, rich colors; lush patterns and textures; bar carts in brass and glass; crystal decanters; leather bound books; taxidermy (isn’t that massive caribou a beauty?); classic games; smoking accessories; and the like.

With the party-goers crammed into the small space, it was difficult to get pictures, so I plan to return in the near future and do a full rundown with the lovely Mr. Dunn.  Be on the lookout for that over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, do drop by Overbey & Dunn to view “Gentleman/Budoir.”  Just don’t you dare buy anything that I already have my eye on…
