About Us

The Yellow Monkey Village has been a landmark in Northern Westchester for more than 30 years, created by veteran antique dealer and eccentric Lee Hardesty. He began importing English country antiques, and courting local artisans and entrepreneurs to fill the more than 7000 square feet of renovated shops. Heidi Johnston purchased The Yellow Monkey more than 15 years ago bringing her own eclectic blend of European antiques and furnishing from around the world.

Heidi began her career as a fabric designer for Scalamandre, and evolved out of fabrics and into home furnishings, creating and managing several retail home stores and developing her own custom furniture line. She later joined the internet boom as one of three principle designers who were among the first to offer high-end, custom furnishings through the internet. Heidi, along with her family, moved to Cross River and combined all her industry experiences in one resource to bring you the best in antiques and home furnishings.

“I hand pick everything that goes into my store, from large antiques to smaller decorative accessories, ensuring that the quality and style are the best they can be. I consider our customers to be part of the neighborhood and as such, I feel an overwhelming obligation to stand behind the quality of all the products and services The Yellow Monkey offers.”

In our new Virtual Village you can browse through our Yellow Monkey Antiques site to see our current inventory of antiques and vintage furnishings. Check out our made in the US Bespoke Capabilities to satisfy your custom needs, or choose from dozens of styles from our Custom Upholstered Collection and gain access to our top line workrooms. Visit our Modern Monkey for our unique selection of tabletop, linens, gifts, and accessories ready to ship, and our Gallery Yellow will highlight the best of our local Painters, Potters, and Photographers.
