This fall, Tom Devenish, purveyor of fine late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth-century English furniture, plans to move his New York gallery to a typical brownstone with an atypical history of housing the Madison Pub near the MET—the former meeting place of an eclectic who’s who of Kennedys and the art world. Devenish says there’s no reason for the move, even though this year he celebrates 50 years in the business. New address: Devenish, 1043 Madison Ave, New York, NY, tel: 212.535.2888.

Brothers Eddy and Arto Keshishian, London’s Pimlico Road rare carpet and European tapestry specialists, have now opened a Manhattan gallery. Connoisseurs and designers rely on Keshishian for their superb collection, ranging from Gothic to pop art, antique Aubussons to art deco. “Our American clients urged us to have a presence here because rare items of outstanding quality are not as available in New York,” says Eddy Keshishian, “but they also came to see us at the Grosvenor House Fair.” Interestingly, during their first year at the London fair, many sales went to new American clients.
