FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — JANUARY 16, 2014
Following news stories about the pending demolition of the building housing its New York flagship store, Rizzoli would like to clarify the situation.
The Rizzoli Bookstore is, and will remain, open for business at its current location for the time being, though the company is actively seeking new space.
For almost fifty years—twenty-nine in its current 57th Street location—Rizzoli Bookstore has been widely considered one of the foremost independent booksellers
Rizzoli has been touched by the outpouring of public appreciation for the 57th Street bookstore as an important part of New York City’s cultural life, and looks forward to remaining a vital part of the city’s fabric for many decades to come.

‘It’s never too late to be who you might have been.’ —George Eliot
Now is the time: If you catch yourself thinking that it’s too late to change your life, you’re wrong. The passing of time is never a valid excuse for not going after the things you want in life. You deserve to do, be, and have all that you want from life and there will never be a better moment than right now to start making it happen.
In excerpts from Hardie Grant’s The Happiness Code, Love Your Life, Swing High, and Change Your Mind, we hope you’ll find the inspiration to take a few small steps towards a healthier, happier you: Click here to read tips for a Healthier, Happier, and More Creative 2014

We are giving away 2 sets of this Interior Design book collection, featuring the beautiful designs of Thomas Pheasant: Simply Serene, Stephen Stills: Decoration, and Suzanne Kasler: Timeless Style.
You can enter via Facebook or Twitter at the following links:
Celebrated interior designer Thomas Pheasant is best known for his seamless melding of tradition and the contemporary. His spaces are fresh and of the age yet also enduringly timeless. Balancing classical elements, like recessed paneling, pilasters, crown moldings, and carved plaster garlands, Pheasant introduces modern details, sometimes including such flourishes and surprising complements as a scroll coffee table and a room screen of ribbed, translucent glass. Unafraid of combining pieces from various traditions, he achieves a sense of harmony and balance. Learn more here.
Simultaneously classical and modern, Stephen Sills’s design work is a dialogue between past and present. Filled with luxurious fabrics, furnishings from across centuries, and unusual finishes, his work is polished, seemingly effortless, and quietly rich, with a muted color palette that serves as a brilliant foil for modern art. Learn more here.
Suzanne Kasler brings Southern charm, European sensibility, and a respect for architectural details to her interiors. Her neutral palette, spiced with hits of color, creates warm spaces that are elegant yet inviting. Inspired by fashion, Kasler uses a scarf as a throw, adds grosgrain or satin banding to the bottom of a chair cover, accents draperies with Chanel-like piped borders, or embellishes a bed frame with delicate handpainted patterns. It is these exquisite haute couture details that drive her design aesthetic. Learn more here.
Good luck to all who enter!
