This sleek home-design store stocks upscale furnishings, gadgetry, and décor for the kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and living room. The inviting space resembles a well-decorated living room, with futuristic clocks adorning the walls, vibrant accent rugs covering the floor, and shapely decorative accents topping shelves, desks, and coffee tables. The front space holds a cache of gadgetry for the kitchen, like bamboo tableware by Ekobo, graphic dishtowels by Tikoli, and curvy potato mashers modeled after old-fashioned ski poles by Black + Blum. Curvy candleholders and cutout pressed-vinyl table runners provide striking dinner-party centerpieces, while ceramic vases and candy-colored, egg-shaped lamps brighten offices and living rooms. A lush bed in the back of the store is topped with Goldie Home’s organic-cotton bedding and Melton-wool pillows studded with stones by Mogwaii. Fittingly, many of the objects cater to space-cramped apartment dwellers, like the mod Wallter slat rack: a dual magazine and coat rack that attaches to the wall, available in shades of lime or neon orange.
