Saying sayonara after ten years at their Wooster Street location, streetwear brand Stüssy has yielded the prime space to modern furniture maker Blu Dot. Staking a claim on what will be their first freestanding store, Blu Dot will bring their clean, Design Within Reach-meets-IKEA aesthetic to the same block as Poltrona Frau.
Although based in Minneapolis, Blu Dot has already hit New York with a store-within-a-store on the fourth floor of Broadway's ABC Carpet & Home. Nonetheless, with most of their business coming direct from their e-shop and catalogs, it is really sad that we are most familiar them via online customer horror stories. Hopefully the move to brick-and-mortar means they've grown up and ironed out the kinks.
