    High-Line NYC

    Wednesday, May 23, 2012

    It’s been two years since I’ve visited the High Line in the Chelsea District and Meat Packing District of New York. Since my last visit, a couple of remarkable things have happened: One to me and one to the High Line. I had a stroke of luck to have an image I took of the […]

    Tom Dixon NYC 2012

    Tuesday, May 22, 2012

    Tom Dixon skips the ICFF this week to open up an ambitious pop up shop? You bet. I went there first thing on Thursday, and I think I may have gotten there too early because there was no items to be bought. But what I can tell you is I’ve seen the most beautiful acid […]

    NOHO Buildings

    Tuesday, May 22, 2012

    First, I should say that I’m not a New Yorker, so what should I call the area around Bowery near the New Museum? If it’s NoHo, then I’ve hit it. Two of these buildings are on Bond Street which really gained prominence with the fabulously stylish Herzog and DeMeuron condo building. Across the street from […]

    Future Perfect

    Tuesday, May 22, 2012

    The Future Perfect is the NYC interior designer’s store of choice. Let’s start by saying I love the store. But as much as I love it, it’s not my favorite store. However, I’ve found that anyone I ask what store I should go to while I’m in town they say “The Future Perfect”. There are […]

    Tuesday, May 22, 2012

    This store is one of dozens in NOHO involved in the Design Week here in NYC. The store is called environment. They focus on recycled wares, and the coolest pieces in the store are the sofas upholstered with old army tents. Beyond the fantastic tent wares, there is a fantastic little exhibition of objects. I’m […]

    Cool bed spread in the Bowery

    Tuesday, May 22, 2012

    This is a traditional Amish quilt which I saw on a very beautiful walnut bed on Bowery near Bond street. I believe they call this area NOHO for north of Houston Street. Neighborhood branding is the pastime here.

NatureToWear by Ldesign

  Nature to Wear by L Design is one of those pieces of jewelry that annoys me because the title has got this almost naive irony in that the way the ring is constructed is not natural at all. Extracting metal from the earth is on the highest order of technology that snubs nature over […]

Desk by Janua

  Janua is a furniture brand I’ve never known until I started exploring this year’s IMM Cologne which happened this week. The collection is quite hard to pin down. Every piece feels familiar, but different. Every piece feels as light as air but also substantially hefty. I don’t know where to place the brand in […]

3 Great Design Shops:

Here’s the deal: I forgot to write down these three showroom names. But if you just walk around SoHo you’re bound to find these three stores. Up First, a $17,000 hanging paradise made of such great quality that there is basically no maintenance required. They make a dog size as well. Much cheaper. Does your […]
