I've written about Etos before but they have recently renovated their space and it's definitely worth another look. The store is owned by Mercedes Desios and Alberto Villalobos who met while they were students at the New York School of Interior Design. They share not only a store but an interior design business and the chicest sense of style. Mercedes is Italian and Alberto is Colombian and it seems like they are always flying off somewhere exotic to source for the shop and holiday. They are not only talented but honestly two of the nicest people I've ever met. Their travels mean the shop is an eclectic mix of antiques, accessories and new pieces. I especially love the pre-Colombian bowls that Alberto brings back from visiting his family. I hope you'll stop by the next time you're downtown.
