Leo Design Gets Booted Off Bleecker
May 26, 2010
Early on in the life of The Shophound, we singled out Leo as one of our most admired stores. As a tiny shop crammed with goods, the eclectic selection of vintage ceramics, jewelry, silver and any number of other gift items could easily descend into an impenetrable jumble, but instead, it is a master class in visual merchandising with every shelf and surface meticulously arranged make each item look its most appealing. Even its moving notice is carefully placed among an arrangement of vintage hammered metal and ceramic vessels.
We don't know what will take Leo's place at no. 413, but they will have especially big shoes to fill.
