Ashley & Sloane Opening
Last week we stopped by the grand opening of Ashley & Sloane, a new showroom just west of downtown packed with wonderful French and English antiques and reproductions. Betsy Karp, who started Vintage Pine years ago and who makes frequent buying trips to Europe, is behind the venture. Karp hosted the party with Farrow & Ball, which was displaying its new Chelsea wallpapers. Ashley & Sloan is open by appointment only and geared toward the trade, but savvy individuals are also welcome. Call 847-951-1803 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
