What’s New is Old

Pitt University's "Cathedral of Learning" as Seen From LEO Design World Headquarters

Standing on the sidewalk before my (soon-to-be) new home in Pittsburgh, I marvel at this wonderful 1930’s Gothic Revival (and Art Deco-ish) architectural masterpiece, the University of Pittsburgh’s “Cathedral of Learning.”  Like the Empire State Building, it was opened in 1931—when it hosted its first class in one of its 2,000 rooms.  It stands 535 feet high and it has become my orientation landmark as I explore and navigate my way around my new neighborhood (much as the Empire State Building did for me in New York City).  What a coincidence that both my homes—old and new—are visually anchored with a handsome, 1930’s tower!

Though LEO Design has closed its Greenwich Village bricks-and-mortar store, the website lives-on (www.LEOdesignNYC.com).  And, over the next few months, I will be re-stocking and improving the site.  In fact, I’ve already begun buying Handsome Gifts which soon will be listed on the website.  And if you follow us on Instagram, you’ll be amongst the first to see all new merchandise as it is acquired, cleaned and photographed.  Please stick with us!


LEO Design's Greenwich Village store is now permanently closed.  While we contemplate our next shop location, please visit our on-line store which continues to operate  (www.LEOdesignNYC.com).
