If you are looking for high end, sexy and modern, John Erik Karkula's Karkula should be on your short list. Located right in the heart of the Meatpacking District, Karkula offers a welcome furniture reprieve from the rag shops that surround.
Trolling around his selection you will find some unusual pieces among some of the usual suspects. Karkula's eye finds an easy unity between shapes from James Murphy (Staten Island), Paola Lenti (IT), Antoni Gaudi (SP), Dudley Best (UK) and Hans Wegner (DK). The collection is also extensive: with rugs, lighting, shelving, tables and chairs. It's one stop shopping for the tasteful rockstar. NYMag says: sexy modern furnishings with an emphasis on natural materials, color, and texture.
