Modern design with classic appeal is the mantra for this trendy but pricey Midtown furniture shop.. The Scene Not a typical furniture showroom, this store has a decidedly urban edge with infusions of funky colors and brick-wall backdrops. An open loft-like layout with mock room setups provide ample browsing room for the hip metropolitan shoppers. With retro-modern sensibilities in lighting and wall trimmings, the fashionable store makes the perfect home for its chic and trendy selections.
The Goods The innovative offerings--from metallic cocktail tables to backlit bed frames--tend more towards form than function. Sofas, dinettes, mirrors and accent chairs balance geometric shapes with sleek, undulating curves and inventive patterning, and can be paired with a selection of funky rugs and lamps. A brilliant lighting gallery showcases artful lamps, sconces and colored pendants, and a pillowy, nighttime-inspired mattress showroom in the back of the store lulls customers to buy. Wares are pricey; the wallet-conscious should opt for the store's clearance area, where items are heavily marked down.
