While in New York last week, I made my pilgrimage to Moss, the best design shop in the World, located on Greene Street in Soho. The shop never fails to impress did not disappoint on this occasion – the collection of Maarten Bass furniture on display was breathtaking
My wallet didn’t stretch to the purchase of one of Maarten’s gorgeous clay chairs but I happened upon a collection of plates by the Russian designer Constantin Boym.
Everyone is familiar with souvenir plates featuring stereotypical views of European capitals or other picturesque tourist attractions but Constantin Boym offers a set of plates devoted to unknown, completely non-descript areas of upstate New York.
Each plate is numbered from a limited edition of 300. I snapped up one immediately and will be ordering the rest online from <a href =“http://www.mossonline.com”>Link text
