Sells for $725 new, so why $950 used?

Sadly there are no Kohl's in NYC, and this is after all a NYC blog... :(

Is this the same exhibit as the one at MoMA?

Oddly enough, Kaffe 1668 on Greenwich St sells these. I don't know how much they are, but I think they're pretty reasonable.

There's nothing to do with this space. That's one of the problems with buildings like this: all about the looks, not the functionality. (Plus the garage entrance, which is abhorrent to the urban context.) About all you can do is leave your bike there, but it'll get rained on.

My hallway's done in the red/green/purple one from the first photo. I've had it for a year and I'm still in love with it. It turns what would otherwise be a dark, dead hallway into the focal point of the apartment.

No, as far as I know, everything Wonk makes is assembled for you. This is not Ikea-grade furniture.

I've had a Clermont credenza and a Devoe nightstand for almost a year, in the light bamboo finish. The pieces look as good as new, with no scratches or stains. The one imperfection is that the drawer mechanisms don't feel that sturdy, but they still work fine -- no squeaking or any other problem. I would buy Wonk again and have recommended them to friends.

The turnaround was also far shorter than promised, which is a rarity!

There are some nice vintage metal cabinets in Brooklyn at the various stores on Wythe between Grand and S. 1st, and at City Foundry on Atlantic. City Foundry has a lot of inventory that isn't on the floor, so be sure to ask for more.

I looked at this sofa and thought it was too flimsily constructed for me. But you should really just go to the store (Broadway and Grand) and see it for yourself.
