With Maison24 already a booming home finds hotspot in Bridgehampton, it's no surprise that design duo (and sibling team) Louis and Allison Julius have the chops to make it in the hyper-critical, ultra-chic, who's-who Upper East Side. And, stocked full of luxe curiosities, elegant chandeliers, a "music bar," (if your apartment can't look like Costes, at least it can sound like it...) and gifts for the whole fam, we're sure that it won't be short of foot traffic on the prestigious block. Aka, cue flocks of ladies fresh off appointments around the corner at John Barrett's salon. Mixing traditional elements with modern winks and flare— and lots of Fornasetti — the shop is home to what will soon become lusted-after casa trimmings and presents (yep, you guessed it) just in time for the holidays. What's that you say? You want to buy us a set of Jimmie Martin chairs? Really, you're far too kind.
Maison24 , 470 Park Avenue (at 58th Street); 212-355-2414, Open: Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m, Sundays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
