Steven Sclaroff, designer and vintage dealer, has been plying his craft and wares in NYC since 1999. His eponymous Tribeca shop is a perfect showcase for his eclectic style--unpretentious, willfully imperfect, comfortable, and just a little wry.

I like the mix of western and eastern, modern and traditional, and serious quality stuff and great pieces of junk."
