Sebastian Varney is a New York City native who enjoys spending time at his home in the Hudson valley and fishing in as many places as possible. He is best known as the President of Carleton V fabrics and Wallcovering. Sebastian grew up in the industry watching his father, the iconic Carleton Varney, decorate hotels all over the world while his mother Suzanne designed textiles in her studio. Here Sebastian shops for a few of his favorite finds on Taigan.

L.E.N Italian Calf Belt in Cognac– I’ve always liked nice leather belts for their longevity and the beautiful patina they develop over time.


Oyster Signature Series Bamboo Fly Rod– I fish as much as work allows. Having a fly rod that lasts forever creates a history for that rod that I remember every time I’m fishing.

Berti Fratelli d’Italia Roncola Pocket Knife – It’s always nice to have a good knife when outdoors. This one is perfect for morel hunting after the first rain in May.

Pommery Meaux Grain Mustard in Stone Jar– I have loved this mustard since I discovered it as a teenager traveling in France.


Perini Ranch Steakhouse Mesquite Smoked Peppered Beef Tenderloin– This is the single best piece of beef that I have had. I was introduced to it at a wedding in Vermont that was catered by the Perini Ranch. Now I send it to my best friends and special clients for holiday gifts.


Hand turned 14″ diameter Catalpa bowl– I love trees and have catalpas planted at my home in Standfordville, NY.


Red Orange Lacquer Bar Cart by Savage Interior Designs–  A great bar cart makes entertaining easy.


The Bahia Luxury Dog Bed– Strongly endorsed by my Westie and Lakeland Terrier.


Carleton V Pillows ( Bukhara Print at Savage Interior Design) – I enjoy having a pair of these in my office, they are as comfortable as they are attractive.


Christopher Spitzmiller lamps–  I’ve known Chris for a long time and have seen his talent and effort at work. He is simply the best at what he does.
