Cool Shop Find: Coming Soon New York

Part vintage furniture and kooky home wares, with a sprinkling of unique jewelry and artisanal body products, Coming Soon New York’s floor-to-ceiling storefront on Orchard Street appears like a portal into the city’s coolest studio apartment.

Inside, there’s a decidedly domestic quality, with mid-century dining tables, chairs, and coffee tables laden with classic Scandinavian enamelware, contemporary concrete vases, and handcrafted jewelry. While the combination of whimsical objects (like the ceramic hat-bowl by Wyatt Little and the Chen & Kai melon-cast planters) should seem hard on the eyes, somehow it all just works – there’s a clear and confident thread that weaves these offbeat pieces into a cohesive take on modern living, while mercifully avoiding the usual post-ironic clichés.

Perhaps the most intriguing item is the enormous prismatic silver object taking up a corner of the store (is it a changing room? Where are the clothes?!) revealing itself to be a personal meditation cocoon – an essential purchase for any cool New York studio apartment.

  • NEW YORK: We’d still say (with conviction!) that @AngelsShareNYC make the best cocktails in NYC. Enter via a loosely associated Japanese restaurant and score a seat in one of the booths by the big beautiful windows. Otherwise, handsome (and skilled) Japanese bar tenders make sitting at the bar a pretty good consolation prize. #MeltingButterNYC #FromTheArchives #AngelsShare Photo: @lilixlopez
  • NEW YORK: Recently opened in the cool part of the Lower East Side, @CervosNYC is a chic seafood and wine bar serving fresh, complex Portuguese and Spanish sharing plates amongst an understated, stylish interior with lighting so good it feels like you’re receiving a warm hug when you step inside. #MeltingButterNYC #CervosNYC Photo by @MattDuckor
  • NEW YORK: @SakeBar.Decibel is an underground Japanese sake and cocktail bar marked only by an illuminated “On Air” sign in front. Inside this graffiti-covered drinking den, you’ll find yourself transported to one of Tokyo's pocket-sized #GoldenGai bars. #MeltingButterNYC #FromTheArchives #SakeBarDecibel Photo: @ntiangco
