Check out this article from the New York Times–“6 Stores Across the World Are a Feast for Design Nuts”–at: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/19/arts/19iht-design19.html?_r=1

The article profiles 6 stores from around the globe including the local NYC favorite, Moss.  In addition, it features the UK’s Jasper Morrison Shop, Berlin’s Brutto Gusto, the Netherlands’ Royal Tichelaar Makkum Shop, Tokyo’s Tokyu Hands, and Switzerland’s VitraHaus.

A sampling of some of the drool-worthy wares featured at these stores is below.  The items, more often than not, are stratospherically priced, but they’re OH-SO-LOVELY
