noho design district : may 15 - 18

Noho (a small area of Manhattan that lies north of Houston Street) is now home to a number of leading design retailers. Resident businesses include The Future Perfect, Japan Premium Beef, Partners & Spade, Oak and newcomer Roll & Hill, among others.

This year, coinciding with New York Design Week and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, the newly organized Noho Design District will be hosting a number of interesting and fun events at participating shops and spaces in the area from May 15-18. Many of the stores will be showcasing special or featured designs and there will be talks and special exhibits throughout the three day period.

(Those are Sam Baron's glass sausages that you'll be able to see on display at Japan Premium Beef.)

Check the events page for details. Core77 has an even better listing of the Noho events including kick-off party times, etc. You'll also see the full Design Week listing there as well. Whether you can make it to this inaugural series or not, be sure to make a visit to this area sometime!
