Kindling yet another spoke of the NYC culture fractal is New York’s Design Week. However the best of it located itself in SoHo’s cast-iron district, where one abounds in visual eye-openers, comfortable chairs, and curated ambiance. Studding SoHo’s Belgian blocks are indoor and outdoor furniture, lighting fixtures, abstract Cuban paintings, mirror and sculptures. Sometimes it does take a Jazz band, DJ, catering or specialty cocktails for patrons to fall in love with a certain fixture, couch or beach bed.
Some exclusive and others open-invite, SoHo’s Wooster, Mercer and Greene streets welcomed buyers, connoisseurs and artists alike unto their simplicity-chic yet velvety-vibrant trellises. Showcasing ‘detail oriented designs and minimalist creations,’ Gianblasco, Kartell, Natuzzi, Blackbody, Flou, Flos, Artemide and Flor were among the generous hosts to open their doors after hours (in part to entice NYC’s notorious bat-mobile aficianados, or fangtasia-bar patrons).
