In honor of the opening of the new Chelsea Passage, we asked Simon Doonan, Barneys New York’s creative director (and author of multiple books; for more on the man, see simondoonan.net), to opine on his five favorite items for the season.
1 Ankasa embroidered ikat linen pillows, 20-inch square, $315 (white), $350 (orange)
“Every house needs a Sante Fe moment. Snuggle up to these crafty pillows and start channeling Georgia O’Keeffe.”
2 R&Y Augusti Anything & Everything shagreen chest of drawers, $5,950
“This is one of those exquisite objects your heirs will fight over. What a shame you will not be around to watch.”
