Historic Studios Opening

Robb Whittlef, the former HGTV personality who owned the late lamented shop Great Estates, has opened the doors on his new venture, Historic Studios. He stocked his trade-only treasure trove with antiques, home accessories, décor, and lighting, so you’ll want to snag an entry on the arm of your favorite interior designer. Whether you want to drop $10 or $10,000, there’s sure to be something in your design budget. As for his favorite find, Whittlef has trouble nailing one down: “Tough to say! There is a collection of composition chairs from the former Soviet bloc that are rock star and a massive antique Italian cabinet that is the best I’ve ever seen on the market!” With that kind of range, who wouldn’t want to sneak a peek?
