Dept. of Modern Affairs. With the McDonald's like rise of DWR and other smaller outfits, Drew and Sina at Edge Modern decided that the field was too crowded and a new path needed to be carved: enter Design Public.
Opening at Space Downtown last month, Design Public is their hip, new online store with which they plan to do two things: 1. find the best new talent (that DWR won't touch) before anyone else does and 2. offer the best customer service around.
Design Public offers a broad selection of modern furniture from Amenity bedding ($400) to Mio Culture's Shroom Lights ($80) and Angela Adams rugs ($70-$1550). Right now there are a lot of recognizable names in their store, but they promise they will continue searching and adding new designers each month. MGR AT Readers comment and vote:
