The multi-story behemoth that is Restoration Hardware’s Meatpacking district flagship store is very much like a museum of home design retail. You could spend a week in that place.

Innovative design can be described as showing people what they can have, rather than merely giving them what they want: and this often translates to expanded functionality. When your apartment has limited tabletop and storage space, it’s especially fun to discover one product that can replace two or three devices you use regularly.
