Bruce Tilley, owner and curator of Decor NYC, has a storied history when it comes to furniture. Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, he began collecting art deco pieces in high school. His early love of home furnishings ultimately lead him to a position as President of Licensing for the home division at Alexander Julian, a job he held for 2 decades. Fast forward to last December when he fulfilled a life-long dream by opening a consignment shop which focuses its attention on high-end “gently used” furniture, lighting, accessories and art. It’s been a wildly successful half-year. I’d like to share why.
