Party of the Week
DeKor Living Opens Showroom With a Swedish Christmas Soirée
To fête the opening of the new DeKor Living showroom at 357 Lafayette Street, designer Isabelle Dahlin hosted a party across the showroom’s three floors. Drinks and food were passed around while designers and style-forward New Yorkers explored the Scandinavian-inspired interiors. “Opening a location in New York City has been a dream of mine for years. When we found this space on the corner of Shinbone Alley, which was built in 1825, it all fell into place,” designer and founder Isabelle Dahlin tells AD PRO. “It’s been really great to see how many people want to know about the craftsmanship and provenance of the pieces—that’s what we are all about. So far, the stools upholstered in vintage Moroccan kilims, vintage lighting, and farmhouse tables have been a big hit.”
