What do we love more than shopping for home décor, clothes, and accessories? Shopping for home décor, clothes, and accessories at stores so vividly colored and brilliantly merchandised that the walls practically giggle when we stroll through. If you’re on a happy-making mission for holiday gifts or personal goodies in New York City, we suggest a couple of special stops.
C. Wonder, the brainchild of entrepreneur and Tory Burch co-founder Chris Burch, is a charisma-packed, candy-colored SoHo lifestyle emporium stocked with jewel-tone handbags, vibrant jewelry, chunky cardigans, whimsical rain boots, cozy blankets, monogrammed cheese boards, tropical mugs, and seemingly everything in between. On the prowl for flame-orange loafers? How about a bubblegum-toned bicycle with coordinating helmet and water bottle? Well, you’re in luck. Even better: the prices at C. Wonder are very affordable, so you can stock up on luxe holiday gifts without having to break into your mattress funds.
Marimekko has been around since 1951, but it’s as hip and Scandinavian-minimalist cool as ever—just take a peek at these photos of the new flagship Flatiron District store that opened in October. Designed to lead shoppers through various “moods,” the store showcases new products like holiday stockings and the limited-edition Marimekko for Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers alongside their signature vibrant floral and abstract tableware, throws, totes and hobos, dresses, baby bibs, umbrellas, notebooks, bedding, robes, storage solutions, and wall art.
Can’t get to the city? Never fear. Marimekko sells online through their own website and through Crate & Barrel, and C. Wonder’s online storefront is coming soon.
