Sarah McNally, owner of the beloved Nolita bookstore McNally Jackson, has complimented her primary space with a second shop, just around the corner, dedicated not to literature but to what she broadly calls “the life of the mind.” Goods for the Study stocks new and vintage furniture and office supplies aimed at giving work spaces a more “distinct character.” Among the dozens of notebooks represented are the sophisticated cousins of Moleskine, in every shape, grid, and line pattern from Mucu, Paperways, and New York–based Public Supply. Find also sleek desks in oak and walnut (most come in under $2,000), leather-seated Hay chairs, hefty, lead-loading mechanical pencils from U.K.-based Koh-i-Noor, and powder-coated, jointed desk lamps from BTC and Jieldé. And, for the collage hobbyist, lefty/righty scissors designed by Samurai sword artisans. The shop, tucked under a white awning, has brick walls painted bright white, plenty of framed prints and intricate pen drawings, and study supplies arranged in tableaux on lamp-lit desks around the perimeter.
