Working with a global network of design talent, Jamie Creel and Christopher Gow have opened the Upper East Side's newest decorative accessories destination, Creel and Gow.  Both gentlemen, are self-declared, "curious by nature," have a love of beautiful things, and Gow is well known for bringing silvered shells, fossils, coral, rock crystal and gemstone boxes to the neighborhood when he had his shop, Ruzzettt and Gow. It was an editor favorite for all things rare and unusual.
This space is hallowed ground in design circles, because Slatkin and Company, Charlotte Moss, and most recently Mish jewelers have all occupied the beautiful brick building. Now there is a new game in town, and you sure to uncover magical, natural world finds at this ever changing emporium of all things fabulous. Be prepared to be delighted an amazed as you enter the threshold of the former stables at 131 East 70th Street. Even the logo is totally chic.
