Chic Shop: Georgia Tapert Living

In these tough economic times, I think it's even more important to support smaller boutiques like Georgia Tapert Living. Georgia grew up around design as the daughter of writer Annette Tapert and worked for interior designer including David Easton, Haynes-Roberts and MAC II under Mica Ertegun. After leaving that world, she wanted to open a shop that reflected her love of travel and design and so Georgia Tapert Living was born.

The array of new and vintage merchandise is made up of tabletop pieces, gift items, artwork and furniture which includes pieces from the line she designs with her friend Caroline Cummings called Carolina George. The line was created out of a personal need for double duty dining table that fit New York apartment living while others were based on antique mechanical furniture. My favorite is the school girl desk and the best part is that all the furniture is made in America and can be custom sized and finished. They are currently reworking the line and are hoping to bring the prices down too.

Georgia also has a fabulous apartment full of items that she's collected on her travels and some of the furniture pieces that she has designed. Be sure to check back tomorrow for photos!
