An Exclusive Annie Selke Luxe Intro at Astor Courts

Last week, Annie invited a group of top design bloggers, editors, interior designers to get an up-close-and-personal look at her new Annie Selke Luxe collection of luxury bedding and accessories. Held at Astor Courts, the Stanford White–designed former home of millionaire entrepreneur John Jacob Astor—and site of Chelsea Clinton’s lavish wedding in 2010—the event was all about giving bloggers, decorators, and editors a chance to experience this exquisite new collection firsthand, and learn all about how it came to be. (For more on that, click here.)


Participants were able to tour Astor Courts, in all its Beaux Arts glory, and see a variety of fully decked-out Luxe beds. They also sat down for a luncheon Q&A with Annie, and took plenty of photos to document this one-of-a-kind trip to Rhinebeck, New York. Browse through some of our favorite moments from this event.
