Moroccan wicker furnishings, Chinese opera headdresses, Loulou de la Falaise baubles, and silver-plated seashells made by the people who repair the Vatican’s silver. These are among the rare whatzits at the new Creel and Gow in Millbrook, New York. Jamie Creel, the co-proprietor, opened his first emporium, on East 70th in Manhattan, almost a decade ago, and it has become a destination for antiquarians around the world. In July he and partner Marco Scarani opened an outpost in the Hudson Valley to service the recent influx of full-time residents, alongside such fixtures as Martha Stewart, Bunny Williams, and Glenn Close.Read More
Until they visited Tangier for the first time in 2004, Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani, the co-owners of Creel and Gow, a cabinet de curiosités-like shop on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with an outpost upstate in Millbrook, N.Y., had no intention of buying a vacation house in Morocco, much less one of the most storied residences in town. Ever since 1997, when they met the legendary interior designer Charles Sevigny in Paris, then in his late 70s and best known for his midcentury work with Knoll, they had been putting off a visit to the northern Moroccan city where Sevigny spent much of his time. The duo, now 55 and 49, respectively, always thought they were too young to enjoy Tangier’s expat enclave of eccentric aesthetes. “It was the last place we imagined ourselves,” says Scarani.Read More

It's Official: Mushrooms are Design's Hottest Trend The “spore” the merrier.”
Shop-owner Jamie Creel, who finds himself drawn to early mushroom objets from the 19th and early 20th centuries, agrees: “There’s something sort of magical about a mushroom.” “Every time I go to auction in Paris to bid on them, they go crazy,” he says. Creel’s upstate–New York store, Creel & Gow, has a variety of ’shrooms available. Artisan-made, wooden mushrooms that range from small tabletop items to 20-inch creations can fetch up to $850 a piece. Three of them were purchased in the first weekend he transplanted them to his Manhattan flagship, Creel says. For some, the connection to mushrooms is personal.Read More
