New York is for fashionistas, and New Orleans is the capital for locally owned home furnishings shops. People who live here would rather put their money into making their homes pretty, and ready for entertaining (holidays, house tours, festivals, Mardi Gras, football season, family celebrations, etc., etc.), rather than on their backs.

So Sterling Provision will fit in perfectly, and sure to become a long time fixture. As with many shops, Sterling Provision takes over an old house, with two floors of merchandise. Dennis and Marin the owners, are avid savvy collectors of all things antique and vintage, so the shop has something from your favorite century.

Mixing in Mid Century furniture has grown exponentially in New Orleans since Katrina, with the influx of young hip people into the city, and a rebirth of the locals looking for a way to express a refreshed point of view in their home decoration.

Just a couple of shops have specifically carried Mid Century furnishings, Vic Loisel (the old Neophobia 2855 Magazine Street)), and Peaches (2122 Magazine Street). Now Sterling Provision adds to the Mid Century mix with a hefty offering of very well priced mod offerings. They gently refurbish pieces with sharp reupholstery, so they are good to go directly into your house.

Sterling Provision has a huge selection of Mid Century Marshall Studios Lamps. Dennis found and bought 1700 of them in a factory in Indiana a few years ago, and had sold most of them. On a recent trip to Indiana, a customer he originally sold 250 of the lamps to wanted to resell them to Dennis. He snapped them up for the New Orleans shop, where his partner Marin expertly restores them. The price point is so good it will make you blush (and a shade is included!).

If the 19th century is your thing, there are plenty of lovely pieces of furniture for you too. Dennis and Marin totally understand the art of the mix. There's a great selection of smalls too, including lamps and one--of-kind designer pillows at affordable prices.
