::GRATE AND BARE-ALL::
Crate and Barrel
has opened a new "destination" (is it a store? is it a design source? is it a dream?) called CB2
I enjoy Crate and Barrel's stuff, but a lot of their furniture and furninshings are a little too traditional for me. With CB2, it's seems they've answered my subconscious gripes about their inventory... I love the Detour collection
of shelving. And their stationery
is quirkily rad!
And then there's Metro
, a CB2 pseudoblog with "places to see and be scene." Nice.
So yeah. Less "Crate and Barrel," more "Aluminum Cube and Acrylic Vase."
