If we could sum up our 2019 buying trip to the “NY NOW” gift show, it would be simply, wow. What a time we had zooming through the city in Ubers, on the subway, buses and of course, taxis. We packed buying, eating and even enjoying a Broadway show, “Kinky Boots” into just 5 short days! Getting out of the mountains and into city life gave us so much inspiration for new things coming to The Gilded Age this Spring 2019.

The NY Now show is always overflowing with an abundance of beauty and creativity from the vast selection of designers ranging from global handmade gifts to fine home decor. This year, we were specifically drawn to the textiles and colors of the global designers with an emphasis on female owned and operated companies.

One big trend that we noticed at “NY NOW” that has slowly emerged over the past few years is an eclectic mix of new with the old. We anticipate this trend to stay for 2019 and beyond as it mixes colorful, bright and airy textiles with antiques giving spaces a refresh without a total interior re-do. This look maintains a classic and sleek design while layering pops of color to draw the eye in to accentuate your decor in its entirety.


We don’t want to spoil all the fun for Spring, but get ready for a total re-vamp of our gift shop, The Gilded Edition! Over the next few weeks we will be busy bees in the shop making space for all of your special gift needs including new jewelry lines, luscious pillows and throws, handmade stationary and so much more! Get a sneak peak below and don’t forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay up to do on all the fabulousness coming to our store!
