Last night in downtown Manhattan, Fathom hosted a shopping event with Jamini, the India-made, Paris-styled home design company. We're huge fans of the pieces — pillows, scarves, purses, accessories — and were happy to celebrate their first U.S. pop-up. We're even bigger fans of founder Usha Bora, who has written stories for us about Paris and Normandy. Thanks to everyone who joined us for a night of shopping, M. Chapoutier wines, Clarelicious cookies, and Williamsburg Pizza. If you couldn't make it to the event, the pop-up will be going on at 171 Elizabeth Street until May 14, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Here's a look at what went down.
