This year Sub Rosa founder Michael Ventura, with wife Caroline, of BRVTVS, embarked on a new venture with Calliope – a retail space offering “a range of furniture and lighting, as well as unique pieces from a global group of designers and artists.”

The boutique, which lives adjacent to Sub Rosa and And&And, adds yet another dimension to our West Village ecosystem.

“Calliope is the West Village’s newest lifestyle storefront where the owners encourage customers to hang out. This uber cool store feels more like a friend’s apartment than a shop. Calliope also offers activities and experiences that range from drawing classes to butchery lessons with local instructors.” – The West Village Life

“Michael and Caroline Ventura’s new West Village design outpost is far more than a therapeutic retail experience, though—it’s an open-door living room where offerings new and old are not just bought, they’re experienced.” – CoolHunting.com

"For us we wanted to have a shop in the building that was a mouthpiece or a revolving door into the culture and the world that we're participating in." Michael Ventura
