A sharp contrast from last weekend, it’s FREEZing here in NYC. This week I’m looking for things that are cool, sharp, and clean.
Never known for comfort, it wasn’t until Moroso introduced the Soft Big Easy that the series found a production version which would be true and wonderful.
In honor of the opening of the Hestor Street Fair, we’re bringing you our favorites this weekend from the Lower East Side:
The Angora Shag Collection is inspired by Rya carpets of the 1950s. They are hand-woven in Turkey with a blend of Turkish angora and New Zealand cashmere wools.
Nirmada’s hand-picked antiques of the week. All at special pricing for Nirmada clients.
Yesterday I received the most wonderful gift in the mail from her from Charley Harper Studios. When this client and I began working together, we were shopping in the Todd Oldham for La-Z-Boy showroom here in Soho and fell in love with these quirky, colorful prints. I’ve never been a big fan of La-Z-Boy, or Todd Oldham, but we immediately fell in love with these graphic masterpieces.
It’s a question many New Yorkers pondered in a few weeks ago when 25 brand-new $129 Blu Dot chairs were dispersed throughout NYC. The company did the experiment to celebrate the year anniversary of their SoHo store. They thought, “What would happen if we left a bunch of Real Good Chairs all over New York, free for the taking? Who will grab them? Where will they go? How will they get there? What will their new homes look like?”
Don’t get me wrong; I think rules deserve to be broken. Here, is a compendium of design don’ts that even a non-conformist like me avoids at all costs.

A couple of days ago I was fortunate enough to score some tickets (they’re sold out for ages) to the Phillip Johnson Glass House and compound in New Canaan, Connecticut.
