[TAKE FIVE] Our Favorite NYC Destinations to Shop for Design
If you follow what we do here at STORY, you know that we have an eye for design. Finding creatives that collaborate to elevate the everyday is how we have fun, so we’re sharing five of our go-to New York City design destinations.
At the intersection of New York’s Lower East Side and Chinatown stands Coming Soon, a place where people who love objects can fall in love over and over. Using a more collaborative, conversational relationship with designers and artists than traditional vendor-buyer models, Coming Soon fine-tunes and experiments with design in a warm, welcoming way.
Cooper Hewitt Kiosk – Grand Central Terminal
This tightly edited store acts as a small satellite to the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s shop, presenting a considered and curated selection that the museum’s director of retail calls “a gem-like thing in a dark and gritty passage”.
MoMA Design Store
Showcasing a sophisticated collection of gifts, jewelry, design objects, personal accessories, lighting, furniture, and items represented in the museum’s design collection, this location directly across the street from MoMA draws from the museum’s inspired vision.
abc carpet & home
Dedicated to cultivating the actualization of home as a sacred space through products that guide creative expression, abc carpet & home creates the experience of a living magazine and interactive museum.
The Tom Dixon Shop New York
The first United States showroom of self-taught British Designer Tom Dixon, this Soho location displays the full range of the lighting, furniture, and accessories that elevated his name to global recognition.
