When her New York flagship opened earlier this month, Cynthia Vincent told Styleite that she planned to branch out into home design. Judging from the decor of her Elizabeth Street boutique, Vincent should do just fine in the world of housewares. Rather than hiring an architect or an interior designer to plan the shop, she masterminded it herself, personally selecting fixtures and furniture and even making the fur blanket on the coach in the photos above. She's enlisted a rotating cast of artist friends to arrange the window displays, and she's sprinkled their work—along with pieces from her own taxidermy collection—around the store. A few weeks in, the shop already feels like it's been in Nolita forever. Above, check out a gallery of photos showcasing the design.
