What Our Clients Say
"Opening the door from 60th street into John Salibello's store makes me feel like Dorothy emerging from the forest, first glimpsing OZ. It is a sparkly abundance of sumptuous furniture, lighting and objects—always a torment of too many beautiful things but ultimately our Kemble Interiors go to for the unusual, the perfect, and the OMG."
