To kick off Bridebird’s City Week, we’ve collected the best from MoMA‘s extensive collection of good design, artfully curated in their museum shop. You could actually create a MoMA wedding registry if you’re so inclined.
We’re inclined; check out our picks below.
Sidebar: choosing MoMA–out of all the amazing online museum shops, in the States and beyond–was difficult, but necessary. We needed to tackle the exciting hurdle that is their museum store (honestly, I could have included 54 items instead of just 14), before I could mentally move on to another museum shop. But we’ve got more museum shops on the list; if you have a store you’d love for us to round up, please let us know in the comments.
1 :: Stretch Chair–while we’re dreaming, why not dream bright? The price of this green wonder (don’t you just want to jump on its bungee seat?) is currently slashed by half. Still not cheap, but a signature piece that will always make you happy.
3 :: Countdown Clock–because every couple needs something to look forward to.
4 :: Yanagi Flatware–sophisticated, sleek, and not overly-designed, thus representing the best of what MOMA has to offer.
5 :: Milking Stool–everyone will fight to sit on the extra turquoise stool.
6 :: Distortion Candlestick–sold as a single, but we like how a pair amps the Alice-in-LSDland factor.
7 :: Folding Cutting Board–so simple, so smart.
8 :: Uplift Kettle–check out the quirky cork handle.
9 :: Masters Chair–it’s Philippe Starck without all the fuss, and you’ll keep it forever.
10 :: Garland Shade Light–I ordered one of these 10 years ago, and haven’t gotten sick of its flower waterfall effect yet.
11 :: Miix Spoon Set–click the link to read the first commenter’s review, then tell me you don’t want them.
12 :: The Neighbors Have Better Stuff Doormat–probably true.
13 :: Strap Leather Bowl Basket–bondage for your bread.
14 :: Untitled (Double-sided Blanket)–this true objet reads ““If there had been a pool it would have reflected us.” The description also tells us that “active use is encouraged.” How recreational!
Anna says: our roundups are intended to be both inspirational and aspirational. Some objects are cheap and accessible, while others are dreamier in both price and scope. Now that registries have been liberated from the tyranny of the scan gun and released into the ether of internet possibilities, you can combine 734 stores into one curated list. Not to mention that you might already own enough hand towels and soup spoons for a small hotel. We suggest you cherrypick the things that appeal to you, ignore the ones that don’t, and share them in equal measure with our already Pinterested style boards.
