The Modern Soul of Lerebours Antiques

October 7, 2009Cathy Lerebours at work. Photo by Gerardo Somoza

Cathy Lerebours, an antiques dealer for more than a decade and a bona fide glamour-puss, has just opened an antiques shop on New York’s swanky 60th Street — a veritable antiques alley between Second and Third Avenues, with dealers cross populated with old-time notions and sundry stores and the famous Serendipity Restaurant and Dylan’s Candy (after all, one does need nourishment after canvassing the dense mass of design shops.)

Deciding to go very much agains the tidal wave of business trepidation as the economy, particularly in Manhattan, threatens to continue its none-too-gentle decline, Lerebours says, “It was the perfect moment to act . . . and act quickly I did.” In a record-setting three weeks, she negotiated, signed and finished construction on the lease on the nearly 1,000-square-foot space in what was once a low-slung tailer shop. Fifty years of fine woolens and sewing machines gave way in a flash to Lerebours tantalizing merch. Before the ink was dry, she enlisted in the redesign of the mangy space. The BFFs ransacked Home Depot and the silk outlet stores on 39th Street and applied their trove and decorator skills until a true jewel box emerged.

Awash in six shades of gray and white, Lerebours Antiques is an echo of the French salon motif that was popular in the 1940s, with stand-out pieces including a lacquered dining table in the Maison Jansen manner, a pair of faux-painted 20th-century Directoire commodes and a French bar cabinet by Maurice Jallot. Lerebours says, “My taste is very eclectic but I tend to gravitate to pieces that are classically inspired.”

Lerebours is a native of the Dominican Republic who used her television talents (honed at Inside Edition and Univision) to create a real-life set that would be a perfect home for the Thin Man series. She dabbles with period finds as well as intricate pieces from her native country that include capricious seashell confections which she artistically transforms into lighting and furniture. Leaving television to travel throughout Europe and later, the United States, Lerebours landed in New York with an offer to enroll in an antiques associates program at Parsons, under the tutelage of the well-respected teacher (and certified decorative arts appraiser) Louise Devenish. An apocryphal auction at Tepper and some groovy goodies had Lerebours hooked — and off and running.

In the Lerebours Antiques show room are a pair of Sue et Mare mirrors, ca. 1930; French opaline glass lamps, ca. 1920; two hand-wrought gilt-iron sconces, ca. 1940; and a mid-century American ebonized coffee table with smoked glass top. Photos by Gerardo Somoza

Selling her finds at the 26th Street Flea Market and constantly re-feathering her own nest on 60th Street further inspired Lerebours’s goal to open her own store. Laughing at the subject of starting a retail venture during a recession, she says “I am only looking forward. And with the likes of Samuel Botero, Bruce Willis, and Noel Jeffries dropping in at my shop — all of them offering lavish praises and compliments — I am flush with encouragement and optimism.”

About the Book

The language of psychology is all-pervasive in American culture—from The Sopranos to Oprah, from the abundance of self-help books to the private consulting room, and from the support group to the magazine advice column. Saving the Modern Soul examines the profound impact of therapeutic discourse on our lives and on our contemporary notions of identity. Eva Illouz plumbs today's particular cultural moment to understand how and why psychology has secured its place at the core of modern identity. She examines a wide range of sources to show how self-help culture has transformed contemporary emotional life and how therapy complicates individuals' lives even as it claims to dissect their emotional experiences and heal trauma.

About the Author

Eva Illouz is a professor of sociology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a member of the Center for the Study of Rationality. She is also the Academic Director of the Program in Cultural Studies. She is the author of Consuming the Romantic Utopia: Love and the Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism (UC Press; honorable mention, Outstanding Contribution Award, American Sociological Association, 2000); The Culture of Capitalism (in hebrew); Oprah Winfrey and the Glamour of Misery: An Essay on Popular Culture (Best Book Award, American Sociological Association, 2005); and Cold Intimacies: The Making of Emotional Capitalism.


“Eva Illouz is a great scholar, and her book has been hailed by many as an important contribution to the field of therapeutic discourse.”Feminist Review
“[An] important reference point for understanding the nexus between self and culture. . . . Deserving of a wide readership.”Theory & Psychology
"A tour de force of critical insights and broad scholarship that provides a rich banquet of ideas for those interested in a broader understanding of the modern soul. It is one of those rare books that forces the reader, whether he agrees or disagrees, to think in new and creative ways."—Charles W. Smith, author of Success and Survival on Wall Street

"Eva Illouz has made another seminal contribution to cultural sociology. Forty years ago, Philip Rieff announced the advent of a new 'therapeutic culture' wherein self-realization, once achieved as a byproduct of commitment to a communal purpose, is pursued as an end in itself. How the therapeutic culture affects selfhood, on the other hand, has remained a mystery. To clarify the matter, Illouz shows how therapeutic values insinuate themselves into the corporate world, the state, mass media, civil society, the family, and the bedroom. Eva Illouz has given to our generation the fullest and clearest account of therapeutic individualism ever written."—Barry Schwartz, author of Abraham Lincoln in the Post-Heroic Era

"Located within a cultural history of introspection, Eva Illouz has given us a highly original treatise-a cultural critique-of therapeutic discourse as one of the principal historical formations, languages, and codes that both articulate and shape what modern selfhood is today. An important work in cultural sociology and the sociology of emotions, Illouz will change many of our ideas about the emotions and late capitalism."—E. Doyle McCarthy, author of Knowledge as Culture: The New Sociology of Knowledge

"Be calm. Be present. Be happy."--Cover.

Book Synopsis

A modernized approach to meditation that will appeal to anyone, even if - especially if - you believe you have no time, you can't sit still, or that it's just not you.

Whether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or someone bogged down with a never-ending to-do list, the proven secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to hurry up and slow down, to unplug. Studies show that you can get more done - and do it better - by doing less, just by consciously unplugging for a few minutes each day and meditating.

This revolutionary book by the founder and CEO of the groundbreaking LA-based meditation studio Unplug Meditation brilliantly simplifies this powerful practice and shows the overwhelmed and overworked how easy it is to unplug in order to relieve stress, regain focus, and recharge.

Schwartz debunks the common misperceptions about meditation, including the notion that you need to sit still for long periods of time, or that you need to turn off your brain. She also shares the life-changing benefits you will experience, the proven science of how meditation literally changes your brain, as well as easy techniques and tips to easily incorporate meditation into your daily life.

Smooth Jazz/Soul - Best Songs of Sade Playlist 2020 New // Sade Greatest Hits Full Album 2020

Taking out two very small clasps from the box, Mom alternately snapped them on the collar in front and on the bra in the back. "Where are the keys to them, mamma?" "And this is where" mamma showed me the key to the very first and largest lock. From the handle of the large key, two more small keys departed at an angle of 90 degrees.

And then I noticed between the cups of my new bra a strange chain made of the same metal as the clasps.

Now discussing:

Yes, I will not tell anyone, and then you will delete the recording from the cameras yourself. Come on, please me, like a neighbor. '' I started rubbing against his face and immediately finished, out of habit. He nevertheless threw me off of him, and then tried to grab me.

Apparently, in bandit fights, it is not customary to make grabs with the legs behind the head, and for some reason he immediately stood up.
