About Nicole Ehrbar

A passion for adornment and a guiding belief that beautiful decorative objects have the power to infuse a magical sense of joy to the mundane inspired Nicole Ehrbar to establish The Grey Pearl in 2022.

Over the course of a decades long career as an in-house public relations executive for premier jewelry brands, Nicole often traveled internationally and across America. During breaks on her trips, she went treasure hunting for unique décor, especially glassware and tabletop, at out-of-the way boutiques, vintage shops and markets.

The Grey Pearl was created with a vision of bringing meaningful gifts, design driven table top, textiles and home decor with artisan craftsmanship she has seen around the world into a warm and welcoming boutique in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Hard-to-find and small batch specialty items for the pantry are intermingled in the inventory.

Nicole sources from diverse and trusted creators and suppliers who share her values about minimizing environmental impact by avoiding any single use products and employing recycled materials. Gift baskets are a specialty of The Grey Pearl. Nicole and her staff delight in creating them for special occasions and offer same-day delivery within Manhattan.
