Site Design

While I was in New York, I finally got a chance to visit Site Design. I actually get a lot of people on my blog through an old post I did about shops in Astoria Queens, so I am happy to do a little review of this store.

It was a lot smaller than I expected but crammed with some really great stuff. They even had some of my favorite Dkim prints on the wall. I would have loved to be able to bring back this orange chair to Chicago for my desk. The woman working there was extremely helpful and put me in touch with the owner about possibly finding this chair in Chicago. It didn't quite work out, turns out the chair is just a really cool vintage school chair, and she recommended Ebay.
So, overall there are a few pieces of well-priced (under $100 range) vintage furniture, beautiful cards and prints, some fun coasters and other kitchen items, a good variety of pillows covered in scarf material, and beautiful display windows.
