Special Nonexistent Furniture

From the DwellDossier... SoHo

By Patrisha Z | Apr 26 2012

We’re excited that our very first brick-and-mortar shop is set to open this June on lovely cobblestone-lined Wooster Street. Our new retail home just happens to be nestled in SoHo among a slew of galleries, cafes, fashion outposts and of course the impossibly cool people who inhabit this art-centric neighborhood. To introduce you to our nabe, we’ve drawn up a mini-guide with a few of our favorite places to eat, drink, browse and get inspired. Stay tuned as we update you with more locales we love in the coming weeks! Enjoy!

While you're out and about take some Instagram snaps of your favorite haunts and tag us @DwellStudio. We'd love to see your neighborhood and keep an eye on the Studio blog where we'll feature your best shots!

We’re so lucky to have a wealth of galleries right at our finger tips here in SoHo. Stopping by during coffee breaks is a nice way to refresh the mind during long days in the office.

Peter Blum Soho

99 Wooster Street between Prince and Spring

Showcasing artists like Sol Lewitt (one of the abstract artists we love!) and Louise Bourgeois, the Peter Blum Gallery always has an interesting show primed for graphic inspiration.

Team Gallery

47 Wooster Street between Broome and Grand

If you’re into abstract sculpture, video installation and mixed media presentation, Team Gallery is for you. We’re always impressed with this gallery’s range of madcap offerings, and we love garnering a sense of who’s who in the ever-changing world of up-and-coming avant-garde artists.

Ground Support

399 West Broadway at Spring Street

We’re always on-the-go here at DwellStudio and for those many trips back and forth between the studio on 6th avenue and our flagship store on Wooster, Ground Support has become our coffee standard. The staff always greets us with a smile and a steaming cup of Intelligentsia drip. Plus we think it’s a pretty good sign when you can cull outfit inspiration from your baristas.

Phaidon Store

83 Wooster Street between Broome and Spring Streets

When we need a break from staring at computer screens and falling down the rabbit hole of Pinterest browsing, the Phaidon bookstore provides a welcome escape. The white washed walls and exquisitely produced hardcover art books restore our faith in the potential of print publishing’s staying power.

The Dutch

131 Sullivan Street at Prince

Some days it’s necessary to unwind from a long day with a fancy little martini glass in hand, and The Dutch has become a go-to for many of the DwellStudio designers. With an open and airy interior, grand French windows and beautifully styled food presentations, we feel right at home here.
