New York City and Jonathan Adler

May 09, 2012

On the Easter weekend my boyfriend and I took a little road-trip to a little city just down the road. By just down the road I mean 800km down the road. And by little city I mean the Big Apple - New York City. I'd been once before for my high school grad trip (we're not going to discuss how many years ago that was), and I was rather excited to return.

We saw all the normal touristy things Grand Central station, the Empire State building, Times Square, Macy's, we rode the Staten Island ferry at night to see the Statue of Liberty, walked down 5th ave. (I went into Tiffany's, but D wouldn't even go past the front doors), ate in Little Italy, were driven around Central park, we went to Ground Zero, and visited the Wall St bull.

We also went here: 
Jonathan Adler storefront in Soho
The Jonathan Adler store in Soho. Sigh - I love Jonathan Adler's designs. Everything is so fun, colourful and quirky. (Psst- Jonathan you need a store in Canada!)

I asked very nicely and the lovely salespeople let me take some pictures of the many gorgeous things they had in the store - and now I'm sharing them with you!

I'll admit to being incredibly tempted by the following chairs. They're antique and were refinished. Apparently there were only 12 in the entire company. If they hadn't been more than a mortgage payment I would have been desperately trying to convince D that one would fit in his car for the journey home.

So what do you think? Any interest in a road trip to NYC to see not just the 'regular' sights, but all the retail destinations as well?

Oh, I also met a celebrity while in NYC - quite a famous one actually:

I like King Kong's Easter bonnet
PS - all the prices in this post are in US dollars

  3. Haha! Oh great - another reason to visit HomeSense! That place is way too dangerous for my bank account!

  4. oh mine! Do love those antique faux bamboo brass chairs! My trouble is how to get them back to Toronto and of course that heavy price tag. I have 5 days to decide what to do next! Will keep you posted :)
