Elle Decor, Elle Magazine's design and style off-shoot, hosted a party Monday night for the release of Modern Americana, the first ever go-to-guide examining the exquisite craftsmanship and custom-made furniture from American studios during a nearly undiscovered era of design. The book's authors, Todd Merrill, a highly respected NYC antique dealer, and Julie V. Iovine, editor of Architect's Magazine, joined Elle Decor editor-in-chief Margaret Russell and many others at Merrill's NoHo antique store to celebrate while guests mingled among pieces from the collection featured in the book.

The highly recommended collection will be on display for you to check out in person at Todd Merrill Antiques at 65 Bleecker Street in New York City.
