Design aficionados know it wouldn’t be a visit to Amsterdam without taking a lap around the multiple rooms in this ingenious, engaging showroom-gallery-shop for the best in Dutch design, always displayed with unexpected flair or plain old cheek. Owners Dick Dankers and Coq de Rooy stock all the same great stuff Murray Moss does at his revered Manhattan gallery, with none of that store’s hushed, glass-encased preciousness: of course you can pick up that Jurgen Bey for Royal Tichelaar Makkum teapot! Yes, please feel free to try out the Piet Hein Eek chair! Exceptional everyday objects in their natural habitat, an experience not to be missed.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
