Vanessa Traina, DECASO Curate Limited-Edition Vintage Home Collection

Two design forces have come together to curate a limited-edition collection of vintage pieces for the home.
Vanessa Traina, executive creative director of the holding company Assembled Brands, and online home decor marketplace DECASO, or the Decorative Arts Society, worked together to put together a collection of more than 60 vintage finds from 15 Los Angeles dealers, including Antique Rug Co., AW Gallery, Dana. John, Den Mobler, East Meets West Antiques, Gallery Girasole, Lumfardo, JW, Paul Marra, Pasadena Art Monkeys, Reform, Rewire, Robert Kuo, Susanne Hollis and UnHeim.
The pieces will be on sale through Oct. 19 at The Apartment by the Line — Los Angeles on Melrose Place.
“It just makes a world of sense for us,” Traina said of the partnership. “We were really looking to give as much attention to our interior community as our fashion community with The Line being a lifestyle brand. DECASO’s marketplace and selection of goods is so vast.

Each year, the series taps a creative type who has “an unfulfilled desire or passion project” they want to bring to life.
“I’m a storyteller, that’s my job as an editor and stylist. This opportunity is completely different, and now my team at CR Studio and I have the opportunity to tell a story with the viewer actually experiencing the story as we tell it,” Roitfeld said. “It’s not a party, it’s a truly immersive experience, a different way of thinking.”
Jean-Marc Gallot, president of Maison Veuve Clicquot, said the house wanted Roitfeld for her “artistic yet audacious aesthetic” and fashion leadership over the decades. “We welcome another empowering woman into the house of Veuve Clicquot.”
