What’s it like inviting everyone into your office?
“Our showroom editors greet you in the lobby in their Glossier-pink jumpsuits. We found the staff on Instagram; they’re dancers, students, and fans who just want to spread the gospel. Usually, retailers pack products wall-to-wall, but each of ours, from Boy Brow ($16) to Balm Dotcom ($12), has its own station. We’re going for a fun, chill vibe in a loft space.”

Quiet Storms
142 Grand St.

Backstory: Reshma Patel wanted a shop for the Germany- and L.A.-based designers she used to find only online.

Vibe: A banana tree grazes the ceiling by the entrance, and the modern jewelry is set out on marble slabs.

Wares: Gold chains by Kathleen Whitaker ($630); glass rings by glassblower Jane D’Arensbourg ($120).

Iris Piercing Studio
238 Metropolitan Ave.

Backstory: Jesse Dobbs started piercing 16 years ago and opened his first studio in Salt Lake City.

Vibe: Glass cases with piercing-specific jewelry, from rook earrings to beyond-the-silver-ball nose rings.

Wares: Partnerships with designers like Pupil Hall for new-piercing-friendly sapphire earrings ($180).

Andrés Modak opens Whitespace (appointments at, a shop in the Flatiron for his online home-goods line Snowe.

“For our first space we thought, Let’s just make our home shoppable. My co-founder and I are a couple, and the store is attached to our apartment. We’ll invite people for events so you can drink out of our red-wine glasses ($15) while shopping for cashmere throws ($248). We’ll have dinner parties with up-and-coming chefs so you can eat with our flatware ($152), and we’re collaborating with Bedford Cheese Shop to fill our newly launched cheese board ($70) with their cheeses. It’s very much like we’re hosting people.”

“I love this hoodie’s ($55) material; it’s rayon, the same as a human shirt. Dogs don’t shed as much when it’s on, so it’s also practical.”

“This velvet bow tie ($50) has a loop, so you can use it as a collar. Otherwise, it’s very soft, and designed just like a human bow.”

“I don’t like the way dog treats usually smell. These are mostly odorless, but have a beef-bourguignon flavor and great packaging ($15).”

“Dogs love hiding, so when they walk into the store, they usually go straight for this teepee ($220). The stripes are really nice.”

“Dog toys don’t need to be ugly. They can look like baby toys, like this plush llama ($25) that’s just more durable and has a squeak.”
