I’m the woman in the photo…a woman who… like so many other people in this world… has had many diverse interests and many different career paths in her lifetime... Each path has made me the “character” I am today… As an executive producer... director and cameraman… I’ve been one of the people responsible for many of the television commercials that you are familiar with... Before that I was a magazine editor and before that a fashion director... and before that... a classical ballet dancer… But all my life… back to when I was a little girl... my grandmother instilled in me a love for beautiful things…a love for old things with a patina... with a history... something treasured...
I have always felt drawn to special objects… beautiful shapes… unusual “finds”... and it hasn’t ever been about money or provenance but about the feeling I have for that particular twisted chair or marquetry cabinet... that tiny twinkling silver clock… or a certain animal executed in bronze... wood... or ceramic... It actually doesn’t matter if it’s precious gold or “common” white metal... what matters is the art…the craftsmanship... and of course the personality... I’ve always felt that the way to decide whether something is for you is really very simple…
does it draw your attention... do you look away… only to feel the need to look back again… and again… and again... Does it make you smile... intrigue you... engage your curiosity... If the answer is yes... then you should have it… provided of course that you are comfortable with the price... and I really don’t think there is any better measure of “How much should I pay than... Is it worth that much to me”... because more than likely the next time you see it… if you ever do again… it will undoubtedly cost more... Then there are the wonderful bargains that we all come across… beautiful treasures ...undervalued in price... just waiting for you to come along... Never pass those moments up… I’ve learned they don’t come along often...
Since my frequent trips to
Europe... Africa and Asia...
have resulted in quite a collection of
fascinating eccentricities… things I just
couldn’t leave behind...I decided to share
some of my favorite things with you...
Sometime in 1984 I opened my first store…
and as I put it all together… I realized I had
developed a “look”… a Linda Horn
Collection... But like so many women...
I’m always constantly changing...so...my
antiques and “recreations” change too...
and things that I’ve loved...
I’ve chosen to re-create for you... They’re
new... but have old breeding… Actually...
some are my personal treasures given new
life… because as you know... everything
“Old is New” again...And don’t miss my new
addition... Linda Horn Jewelry...
my personal collection of... estate... vintage...
modern... ethnic... collected from all
over the world...worn and loved by me...
now for the first time...offered to you...
The Madison Ave. windows have
been called...
“One of the great retail sights of New
York”... making people stop and stare...
fascinated... amused... even the children
ooh and aah... If you’re in New York...
you just have to visit... Or... just stay at
home... wander our website... and tour
the store online... hopefully you’ll find
something that makes you... Stop...
Smile... and Think...
“This is Perfect for Me”...
