Deck the Halls

Together with his business partner, who is also his mom, Arkansas-born event planner Bronson van Wyck has designed everything from the opening night at the San Francisco Opera and the debut party for New York City’s High Line to soirees for presidents Obama, Bush, and Clinton. This winter, the 39-year-old designer has focused his tasteful and elegant aesthetic on a holiday-themed pop-up inside an Upper East Side townhouse at 19 East 75th Street. The cozy space, which is open through December 24, offers a lavish twist on traditional festive decor. Mongolian sheepskin tree skirts ($2,750), tartan tablecloths ($250), and napkins that can be monogrammed (from $100) are displayed alongside mounted game heads ($1,950 to $3,750), as well as stitched leather tables, cast-brass bamboo furnishings, and custom colored wool rugs from longtime friend Celerie Kemble’s new collection for Henredon, which launched in September. Fresh-cut wreaths (from $200) are hand braided and made from magnolia or interwoven cedar, juniper, pine, and eucalyptus branches, and bespoke Christmas trees (from $17,500, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the East Harlem School) are decorated with a selection of distinct ornaments including chinoiserie vases, coral manzanita branches, white owls, and peacocks. The trees, each of which has been uniquely decorated by Bronson, can be delivered and installed anywhere in the New York metro area.
