New York! New York! A List of Design Things to See
This week I'm celebrating my birthday a little bit early with a trip to NYC. I've never been in the Winter, so I'm starting my list of "indoor places to see cool design things" a little early. I've never been a fan of huge museums and exhibitions (...the Louvre, kill me!), and find that smaller galleries and boutiques are much more intimate and relatable.
Here's what's on my list to see this trip.
Check out these places and online shops for pretty handmade things:
Artists & Fleas Market
This market has multiple locations in Chelsea Market, Soho, Williamsburg, and apparently in Venice, CA which I somehow missed? In every location you'll find independent handmade, fashion and vintage vendors in a unique marketplace setting open every week.
Chango & Co
An interior design shop that also sells a bunch of stuff on their site (score!) is a neutral lover's paradise. They sell a lot of natural fabrics with mudcloth and batik prints sewn into pretty pillows.
This cute Manhattan shop has a zillion letterpress (and non-letterpress) cards, stationary, and they also make wedding invites. Letterpress is a form of printmaking that I have zero experience with, which is maybe why it's so fascinating to me. You can buy all the things in their online shop too!
Know of any good design spots in NYC?
Let me know in the comments so I can scope 'em <3
