Modernity. A visit here doubles as a crash course in 20th century design. The store’s Scottish owner, Andrew Duncanson, scours Europe to find original pieces of post-war design, most of them Scandinavian and in extremely good condition. From Denmark, for instance, came Arne Jacobsen’s 1955 Tongue chair ($2,325) and the famous Artichoke lamp by Poul Henningsen ($3,575). We particularly like the store’s swinging-sixties bent-the fibreglass Pastille chairs by Finnish designer Eero Aarnio ($1,010 each), which resemble brightly colored UFO’s, are great fun.
