Nice guys actually finish first and this is one of my go to spots for textiles, tabletop and objects d’art- for my own home and for gifting.
It is a treat shopping at John Derian—such a New York gem and totally individual.
I love to visit John Derian’s shop in the East Village. It is a beautiful escape into his world of home and interiors. I always have to leave with at least one item.
John Derian is not only the best man, but also an incredible curator and creator. With shops in both the East and West Village, he has managed to accrue a constantly evolving collection vintage and antique imports, bed and table linens, stationery, plate-ware, lighting and more. If you are lucky enough to pop in around the holidays, you will be blown away by the ornaments and adornments engulfing the store. Just a treat to shop there!
John Derian Company Inc. was established in 1989. John's decoupage is handmade in his studio in New York City, where he employs a small staff of artisans to assist with production. His designs are sold at upscale home stores, in catalogs, and gift shops worldwide. The full range of John's work, including his ephemera, ceramic and furniture collaborations, is available at his own retail shops in Manhattan's East Village where he has an ever-changing assortment of vintage and antique imports, bed and table linens, stationery, plate-ware, lighting and original art work by Hugo Guinness. The shop, John’s work and homes have been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, The World of Interiors, Elle Décor, Vanity Fair, Bon Appétit, New York Magazine, GQ, Details, W, Air France Madame, German AD and many more. The John Derian Picture Book, a compilation of some of his favorite 18th and 19th century images from his archive, was released in 2016 and quickly became a New York Times Best Seller.
