Haus Interior Marks First Anniversary With Plans To Expand (PHOTOS)

NoLIta boutique Haus Interior celebrated its first anniversary Thursday night with a party hosted by founder Nina Freudenberger.

"This has been an amazing year for me and for Haus Interior," Freudenberger told the Huffington Post. "We have plans to open a store in Boston in 2011, continuing our amazing interior projects and working on a book on creating the perfect home."

The flagship Haus Interior boutique, located on Elizabeth Street in NoLIta, opened in 2009 and grew out of Freudenberger's design firm of the same name. The shop, which has a cult following in the design community, offers accessories and decorations as well as original art and design services.

On hand to help Freudenberger mark the milestone were "Real Housewives of New York" star Alex McCord (fresh from taping HLN's "Joy Behar Show"), hotelier Sean MacPherson (who owns the nearby Bowery Hotel) with Guest of a Guest editor Rachelle Hruska (in their "debut appearance as a couple"), and scene regulars including Luigi Tadini, Serena Merriman, Lauren Goodman, Darrell Hartman, Annie Churchill, Bonnie Morrison, Anisha Lakhani, Kate Shelter, Peter Davis, Antonia Thompson, Bettina Prentice, Casey Fremont and Titina von Waldow.
