Oly For All Mankind.

Until very recently Oly was a designer's best kept secret for "sexy French meets postmodern organic"; perfect for those hip and chic clients who are looking for fresh, modern and playful. What I love about their designs is that they never fail to bring a smile. The California designers Katie McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger do not do ponderously serious.

The Berkeley, California duo have taken their full range of products, from 4-inch obsidian bowls to 8 foot etageres and elaborate chandeliers, eastward to stock their newly opened flagship store in Tribeca, called Oly Atelier. Call it the democratization of design; Oly is now open to the public.

New Yorkers at least can now go sans designer to choose their Oly up close and personal. Take a look at a some of their lighthearted offerings:

Oly Studio and the new Oly Atelier are featured in this month's Elle Decor special 20th Anniversary issue.

If you are not going to be in NYC any time soon, and would like to have some of Oly's delightful things in your home, talk to your designer. Oly Studio works with the trade only (except for this new flagship store).


in 2010, it's:
