25 best new stores in the word
At a time when everything can be bought on-line, a big store has to be more than just a place to be. It has to be a place to have time. From high-end snakes to legitimate refrigerated containers, you need an interesting room, an inventive perspective and the kind of client care that makes it worthwhile to leave the store.
Join us in celebrating the 25 stores that take us shopping. For almost a hundred years, Herman Miller has been making icons to stop off, tap and dine on - and yet the firm has never opened a showcase for all these years and all these works of art, right up to this Park Avenue flag ship.
With all the nameless plays in the private, easy to handle vignettes (Eames, Noguchi, Aeron....) you get a free hour of designing, even if you never flog your customer cards.

When most of the furnishing shops are big-box, County is a jewelry case. Although much of what you find inside has a mid-century feeling, you will also see practical and ornamental Japonese toys and articles that somehow match the robust Lady White Co.

In order to see Casa Perfect, you have to stay on a calm street until you arrive at a certain house. Behind the house is a beautiful swimming pools, in which the owner of Casa Perfect, David Alhadeff, enjoys swimming. Yet Casa Perfect, all 3,000 sq. m., is also a furniture store like The Future Perfect, in New York and San Francisco, where everything is for sal.
The Casa Perfect is a place where you can make yourself comfortable enough to take a snooze and leave the couch you have just had. Avantgarde' s latest creation shows how his new cave is home to a former SoHo fabric plant, where architecture and fashions live together. Enter the new BT top-of-the-range vinyls and you'll soon find that here's a shop for men who love to dress in a suit, not because they have to.
This means interesting materials, colours, designs and fitting forms that are great to use. Perhaps you have a vivid career (advertising agency?) and want to carry a one-button ridge with jeans, or you want a cord black for a Royal Tenenbaum celebration. However, like any other shop, there are good and poor topstores.

Established by Amah Ayivi, an extremely classy Togolese ex-pat, the Marché Noir wine store is a tribute to both the high Parisian and West African creative traditions and brings together each other. In his store, you just learn how to look more interesting. We' re talkin' about headgear, cattle meat, incense sticks, sailcloth rucksacks, even knifes and antique jewellery.
Second-hand furnishings is more like purchasing a classic vehicle than purchasing antique clothing - more variable, more cash, much more cataclysm.

Fieg: The Ronnie Fieg products must fit the aesthetics of the store designs and the other way around.
We have a great deal of beachwear and we stock labels that we don't even have in our New Yorkers. Kith Treats is the next part of the store to the road. It' s difficult not to come to the shop when it is 90°C outside and you see someone who eats the most tasty egg of all time.
