Hollister Hovey’s Heirloom Style

Proclaimed as “the New Antiquarians” in the New York Times, Hollister Hovey (the creator of the lifestyle blog hollisterhovey.blogspot.com) and Porter Hovey (a photographer and interior decorator) are proponents of an aesthetic that mixes Ralph Lauren, the Royal Tennenbaums, and a whole lot of taxidermy. As the principles of Hovey Design, they work to integrate nostalgia, adventure, and history into the home.

In their new book Heirloom Modern: Homes Filled with Objects Bought, Bequeathed, Beloved, and Worth Handing Down, the sisters pull back the velvet drapes on the model ships, antique book collections, and vintage Vuitton trunks that fill the homes of today’s chicest heirloomists and flea-market lovers. This book opens up the homes of individuals and couples to show how they use décor to give their residences a sense of history and autobiography. The Hoveys venture into the apartments, cottages, and townhouses of artists, architects, designers, furniture makers, and landscape designers, who seamlessly integrate inherited keepsakes, tag sale curiosities, collections and memorabilia, and contemporary art. Inspiring in its eclecticism, this book introduces readers to a new kind of modern.

Take a Video Tour of Rizzoli Bookstore

For nearly fifty years New Yorkers and travelers from around the world have found at Rizzoli Bookstore a collection of books that always transcends expectations.

Established in New York in 1964 Rizzoli moved in 1985 to its present location— a six story townhouse exhibiting on its façade a sober classicism that belies the elegant interior within, where cast iron chandeliers, ornately decorated vaulting, and a luminous Diocletian window create a serene setting for booklovers amidst the rush of Midtown Manhattan.

Our collection of books is specialized in illustrated subjects—fashion, interior design, art, architecture,  photography, design— and literature, in Italian, French, Spanish, and English. But all subjects of general interest are represented and we carry a selection of European magazines and newspapers. We also carry a fine selection of compact discs and DVDs, and our selection of note cards and stationery is a constant delight to our customers.
