    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 […]

    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.

    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.

Moooi and B&B Italia showrooms

The showroom located in Soho is about as cool as it can get. B&B Italia and Moooi bring you about all you would ever need to increase the design insanity level of your home. And I have to say, the staff in both B&B Italia and Moooi are absolutely fantastic, helpful, kind.

Bowery Furniture

I’ve forgotten the name of this fabulous little furniture spot, but think Amish craftsmanship, walnut, sort of a chunkier ’50s chic.

SIde Furniture Unit by Richard Lampert

  This blog will see much more work by Richard Lampert. The collections of furniture are so deep and so thoughtful that just having this one piece does nothing to show the range of beautiful work. I choose this piece, frankly, because I need a piece like this in my house right now. I need […]

The Interwebosphere has been abuzz with news about the very device that may be spell—or rather, print—its unmaking: earlier this week, London-based design consultancy Berg unveiled their latest innovation, the Little Printer. The desktop device is roughly the size of a cube of Post-It notes, configured to produce a receipt-sized analogue for a newspaper featuring […]
