House and Garden called her the treasure seeker and that she was.

Amy Perlin was known for her unbelievable unerring eye for antiques. She began in Bridgehampton and became the go to resource for incredibly unique and quirky 17th, 18th, and 19th Century Continental furniture and decorative objects with that loved, aged, rustic lived- in look. Her 10,000 square foot showroom space at 306 East 61st Street was artfully arranged with a display of finds, often eclectic, out sized, dramatic pieces from across all corners of Europe. She passed away, and her loss is great. The interior design community hopes her legacy will live on and Amy Perlin Antiques will continue to thrive.
