Homer to Reopen in New York

Richard MishaanRichard Mishaan

NEW YORK-Next month, interior designer and architect Richard Mishaan will reopen Homer, the New York City retail store which he closed in 2008.

 In its newest incarnation, located at the corner of University Place and 10th Street, Homer will feature a revolving collection of curated furniture, decorative accessories and art which will be re-imagined every four months to reflect Mishaan's design vision. Homer was originally located within the Whitney Museum of Art.

"I believe collecting is a commitment and the motivation behind a purchase should never be financial, but always about loving the piece," Mishaan said in a statement. "I have people tell me with great excitement that what they bought several years ago for a reasonable price is now worth a fortune. I ask them, 'Other than the price, do you still love it?' and they all reply, 'I would never part with it.  It's my favorite thing I own,'" continued Mishaan. "Homer will be a place to find and seek inspiration."

Mishaan will also co-represent artists on a rotating basis. As an avid collector of art himself, he has helped cultivate noted international artists, including photographer Massimo Listri and furniture designer Guy de Rougemont, who will be exhibited at Homer.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
