Metro Man & Metro Home

By PK Greenfield

Vintage and Modern (V&M) is a leading online source that provides vintage furniture, art, antiques and home furnishings from around the world. Their Design Atelier program is by invitation-only for design professionals to promote their latest product lines.

COCO-MAT, in New York City, recently hosted the launch of Design Atelier with designers: Christopher Coleman, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, Heather Maloney and Maria Aiello.

Christopher Coleman “The Colorist”

Vivid and whimsical, Christopher Coleman’s creations not only offer a punch of color to any room but also bring an element of surprise to the interior. His exclusive line for V&M includes vases, bookends, acrylic trays and more. “I also mix found pieces with custom designed furniture to give each room a personality!”

Marie Aiello debuts her first-ever collection on V&M

Combining color, texture and form to create a sophisticated and timeless style is the signature of Marie Aiello. Her work is based in storytelling and her client roster has grown to include some of the most influential people in music and entertainment as well as developers and restaurateurs.

Architect and designer, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, brings a lightness and openness to his creations through his use of color and select materials. His fresh and playful work is showcased in high-end residences, commercial businesses and hotels.

Designing for clients such as Lenny Kravitz, Sean Combs and Russell Simons have helped increase his popularity and demand. His latest designs can be seen at the Mondrian SoHo, a continuation of his work for the Morgan Hotel Group.

Heather Maloney: Sleek, clean and linear design

If you have seen the Tides in South Beach, Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk or the redesign of The Chelsea Hotel in New York City, you’ve encountered the work of Heather Maloney. Her new line for V&M will maintain the same contemporary originality.

Shopping for original home furnishings just got a little more creative and a lot easier.
