Tyler Hayes’ furniture label BDDW is a favorite of mine. The prices are — as with nearly all well-designed furniture — off the charts, but it’s always fun to look. I haven’t had a chance to check out their SoHo, NYC showroom in person but Trendland has a nice gallery by Patricia Thompson (who also has some great shots at her Flickr) detailing the interior.
I’m getting a rustic-take-on-Dieter-Rams vibe from that second one. Really nice stuff.
A friend showed me a place called Meet, seems like a nice spot for meetings but the idea is a bit too forced/corporate feeling for my taste. This is from their About Us page: “Marc and Sara Schiller, who realized that there was a need for a dedicated space in New York where creative and business executives could gather to re-imagine a business, re-invent a product or pitch potential clients. Advertising agencies, top consumer brands and television networks are among their enthusiastic clientele.”
