One of the coolest stores in all of Soho and by extension, all of New York is Moss. Now that I think about it, a store that's the coolest in New York is automatically the coolest in the world, right?
Moss sells home stuff, some of the most amazing home stuff I've ever seen. Their inventory spans price points and sensibilities and it's all connected with a truly wicked sense of humor.
They're new to Facebook and Twitter (follow @Moss_online) as of this morning, so like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter and you'll see what I mean by wicked sense of humor.
During my Manhattan meanderings last month, stopping in at 150 Greene Street (that's on door down from West Houston) was the usual adventure. I have a thing for the "Clay" furniture series from Maarten Bass and they have a table and some chairs in the store.
I love peeking behind the curtain and Bass's Clay tables, chairs and end tables are an homage to the modeling clay roots of all furniture. I think they're a riot because that rough step in the design process is never meant to be seen.
Most of the store's inventory is available on their website, but as is always the case, nothing compares to seeing the real place.
If you find yourself walking up Greene Street, be sure to pop in.
