Synonymous with Ari Marcopoulus’ photography, it offered us a window into what was happening out on the East Coast. It was like the East Coast Spitfire for a minute.

Keith Hufnagel has recently revived the company and we are glad that he has. Small runs and choice pieces are being released, no urethane yet though.

Come and visit us to check out what we have. Metropolitan is available exclusively from our Covent Garden shop.
