Concierge.com's insider take:
It would be easy to mistake Moss for a bite-size museum: Items in this design store range from porcelain plates from the 18th century to the latest Scandinavian furniture. But yes, it's all for sale, from the pocket flashlight by Lexon Design of France, which costs less than $20, to a bright-red, vintage Borsani articulating chairto the tune of $6,500. Owner Murray Moss picks the goods himself and originally built a reputation by selling housewares and objets d'art by heavyweights like Ted Muehling, Hella Jongerius, and Tord Boontje. You never know what to expectyou might find a classic Sèvres porcelain bust of Molière in the corner or a set of Laguiole knives with candy-colored handles by the counter. There is also an art gallery next door.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 7 pm, Sundays noon to 6 pm.
