Moss opened as a small gallery space in 2004, and by 2009 had expanded to its current showroom of 7,000 square feet. They offer creatively-inspired furniture for adult and children, primarily from Italian manufacturers. They also sell lighting, jewelry, books, and accessories. The focus is on the art of the object, and not so much its perceived material function. Pieces are displayed gallery-style, and they rotate exhibitions. The space is more about presentation, and decor, but the staff is friendly and approachable. They are well-versed in the details and functionality of each piece, and will be able to answer any consumer questions.

Moss is like a homewares museum. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to afford anything substantial here, but I don’t care — they have such awesome stuff that I’m perfectly content just perusing. The designs are really inspiring. What’s really cool is they carry a lot of items from New York institutions, like a “back-up” chandelier from the Lincoln Center. It could be yours for $750,000!
Moss has a great online selection too! Yes, most of their pieces are original works of art, and are priced as such, but they’re also just so interesting and unique! Like the vintage doll shoe necklace by Tom Binns I saw on their site recently! Amazingly fun!

Urban farming has been gaining popularity these days in NYC, but a Brooklyn-based company is taking the verdant practice to new heights--literally. Hidden away on a Johnson Avenue warehouse rooftop between Bushwick and East Williamsburg, Edenworks's custom-designed aquaponic growing system (a.k.a. Farmlab) is able to grow lush greens in a compact, 800-square-foot space. In stark contrast to the concrete jungle found outside, the indoor roof space is filled with a lush garden installed atop a tiered structure that features tanks full of tilapia fish.

As much as we love writing about treehouses in rural areas, the fact that there's such a dearth of them in the big city is a bit disappointing. That's why we were so delighted to come upon this Fort Greene townhouse that fulfills our urban treehouse desires with an oasis-like backyard and roomy wooden perch amidst the leaves.
