All designers are inherently collectors – whether it be J’s infatuation for antique table linens or G’s ongoing hunt for the perfect (and seemingly elusive) vintage cheetah statue – we all have our secret vices. Only true collectors understand each other and the strong desire to keep collecting – even when the collection starts overflowing your tiny NYC apartment.
One of our favorite collectors is fellow designer and mentor, Harry Heissmann, and his unique collection antique Christmas tree stands. He has decided to part with 150 of his 200 count collection. They are absolutely beautiful – each completely different in design and size. If the sale wasn’t enough, the charming, free-standing home where Philip Colleck antiques resides on 58th Street is worth a visit. Be sure to peek out the back window to view the garden where you can see one of Harry’s stands “in action.”
