One of my favorite things about living in New York is that you can walk by a store hundreds of times, never go in, and then suddenly, one day, you just decide to pop by and you can discover a real treasure. That’s what happened for me with BDDW. The store, which is massive, is just around the corner from our studio — I walked by it every day on my way to and from work for a solid two years and just a few weeks ago, on our way to a meeting, Garance and I decided to pop in.
BDDW is an interior-phile’s dream. The furniture is beautiful. The objects are unique and thoughtful. The design is a little too perfect, but you can imagine how nicely a chair would work in the corner of a bedroom with a few t-shirts loosely thrown over the side, or how the tableware could stack so nicely on a shelf that suddenly your kitchen becomes Pinterest-worthy. It’s definitely the kind of store, and the kind of stuff, that makes you dream about a home that’s perfectly imperfect, like Anthony’s or Ramdane’s. Full of treasures that you just happened to stumble upon on Crosby Street.
