Longtime readers of this site will know of our love for MUJI, the Japanese retail chain that makes simple, elegantly designed everyday objects. The story goes that if we need a MUJI-fix, we either have to make a trip a London or make-do with the small selection of MUJI goods at MoMA. Well… not for much longer! It was announced yesterday that two MUJI stores will be opening up in New York this year after July. This is such good news! We know that MUJI will have a small desk that is perfect for Jane (not that she should wait). Also, another retail fave, H&M announced that they’re getting into the home textile markets. We’re not sure what this means, but we hope it leads to some well-priced, groovy bedding and bath gear.
(BTW, the above images came from two great sites: Muji is from The Shanghailist, a cousin of the Gothamist. And H&M is from Curbed LA, where we always check when we’re in need of a real estate troll.)
