Etos, a vibrant partnership of two young international designers, perfectly balances a fusion of European glamour and Manhattan practicality. Mercedes Desio and Alberto Villalobos met in design school in NYC, where their passion for merging the old with the new led them to open a boutique that functions as a canvas for their eclectic styles. Inspired by a wide range of cultural influences, the gallery is filled with carefully selected furniture, accessories, and art and personal vignettes that inspire the imagination and evoke its owners’ travels and backgrounds.
