New York-based furniture and accessories retailer Antony Todd opens his first international location in Istanbul, Turkey. The 1,600 square foot store opens November 12th and is on the exclusive Abdi-İpekçi Street and will be a trove of rare 18th, 19th, and mid‐20th century one‐of‐a‐kind pieces, along with new Antony Todd signature designs and local treasures.

Located in the chic district of Nişantaşi, the new store is surrounded by luxury retailers such as Prada, Armani, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Bang & Olufson, as well as local luxury retailers, Beymen and Vakko.

"I fell under the spell of Istanbul and it's unique east-meets-west, ancient empire-meets-modern metropolis feeling, and wanted to be a part of this enchanted city," said Todd. "I've been like a whirling dervish planning the opening, but it's all worth it!"

A classically modern aesthetic and restrained European sensibility define Todd's style. Todd is also an interior designer, entertaining expert and event planner.
