The Luxe Life: A London Talent Relocates to NYC

December 6, 2012

Formerly based in London, Anna Karlin moved to NYC in 2010; since then, she has been distilling her aesthetic through a wide range of endeavors: digital, print, branding, interior, and set design (working for clients from Swarovski Crystal to U2).

This past October, Karlin debuted her Furniture and Fine Objects collection, working with a limited but luxe palette (ash wood, hand-blown glass, and brass) and simple shapes that reference American craftsmanship. The collection is produced entirely in New York; Karlin's New York City showroom is located at 64 Allen Street, 4A, and is open by appointment only.
