Born from interior designer Andy Goldsborough and art dealer Elizabeth Moore, The Gilded Owl marries art and decor and has become a vivid example of Hudson as an attraction for collectors and the curious, alike, in search of high design. The Gilded Owl began as a blog dedicated to craftsmanship and beauty in design, art, music and fashion that aims to inspire those interested in design and the way creative forces influence the way we live. While collaborating on the renovation and redesign of a 1785 federal style house in Hudson, New York, Andy and Elizabeth co-created a new vision for a unique retail space. After years of neglect and stripping the house back to it’s stunning origins the rooms unfolded as a sequence of spaces that would allow the two and a half year old blog to become a real living gallery.
In 2017, further expanding their vision, they opened a second 3,000 square foot gallery space at 318 Warren Street offering jewelry, objects and the full line of Chiavari chairs from Fratalli Levaggi. For the first time the chairs from the family owned factory in Liguria have been offered for sale in the U.S. alongside other modernItalian vintage furniture by Gio Ponti, Vittorio Valabrega, Paolo Buffa and other master architects and craftsmen. The Gilded Owl will launch its debut line of bespoke furniture, lighting and accessories in 2018.
