The designer who outfitted Chloe Sevigny’s apartment as well as her brother’s club, the Beatrice Inn, has opened an expanded retail shop on Second Avenue.

Cafiero Select, formerly on East Sixth Street, moved to the corner of Second Avenue and East Second Street late last year. Last week, it finally reopened to the public.

“We’re looking forward to a larger street presence,” said David Cafiero, using words like “excited” and “deliriously happy” to describe his feelings about the new, larger digs. His design firm’s studio, formerly located in Williamsburg, is now in the basement; the store is now on the ground level. The offices are on a second-floor loft. The whole shebang is around the corner from Cafiero Lussier, the event design and catering business he co-owns with Thom Lussier.

According to Mr. Lussier, the space had been vacant for more than 30 years when the building’s owners offered it to them. “The universe chose us,” he said.

The sun-drenched shop is filled with an eclectic selection of brightly woven throw pillows, wingback chairs, tripod lamps and original artwork. You can browse the inventory online.
