Profile: Morlen Sinoway Atelier

Morlen Sinoway Atelier is highly charged and saturated in all the right places. The Fulton Market Street showroom is a creative outlet for Sinoway, who has a background in fine arts. For him, the atelier is his shop, a kind of salon where the objects have a conversation, and all are welcome to drop in and join for a bit. The guests at this salon? 1.) Lighting designed by Serge Mouille, whose wall-mounted swivel lamps and chandeliers are sexy, elegant and extremely functional. 2.) Heirloom-likely furnishings by contemporary designers (naught-century modern?). 3.) An eclectic collection that includes handmade jewelry, artwork by Joe Hindley, (one of my favorite artists, click here for his Strange Closets studio tour) and an assortment of rare and interesting vintage goods, such as a Porcelain lab ware from Berlin(!) and an antique pipe case collection (!!). It’s quite a party. “The element of surprise is important to us,” Sinoway says. Every spring, the conversation spills outside for the Guerrilla Truck show, which Sinoway started as a platform for young artists and designers to introduce their work. For those looking for an interesting, surprising and altogether delightful experience, check out Morlen Sinoway Atelier. And for those who want to filter their own home environment through a more unique, artistic lens, Morlen Sinoway Atelier also offers design services, so stop by or give them a jingle.

I kind of love this chair. It’s a young love, a tentative one. But in my experience, those are the ones that endure.

What is the significance of the peacock? Or are they just beautiful?

A Serge Mouille in its natural habitat. It’s a beautiful sight, and I was fortunate to capture it.

The red and white is groovy.

Very cool.

    It is a fabulous gallery – I have been there on several occasions and find lots of interesting unique pieces. Morlen Sinoway really has an eye for the unusual and he’s a great designer.
