My New York: Meg Cohen Design Shop

Tucked away on Thompson Street, one block west of that psuedo-bohemian clothing and home store your girlfriend loves so much is a tiny vintage and accessories shop with a whole lot of soul.

Meg Cohen Design is one of those places that's hard to take in the first time you go because you don't know where to look first. The store is an even mix of her own collection of knitted accessories and vintage finds, all ingeniously merchandised in a series of quirky, vignette-like displays that make you feel like you're walking around inside a work of art.

Meg is a designer's designer. Each color, quality and stitch is carefully considered but not fussed over, yielding product that is bright, thoughtful, fun and effortlessly wearable.

This wonderful sensibility also spills over into her selection of unique vintage and home decor. The level of humor, comfort and creativity is a reflection of the genuine passion Meg has for what she does. I suggest you come and experience it for yourself, you'll be happier for it. I promise.
