The sleeper hit of this year's NDD? Modern Craft at The Merchant's House Museum, curated by us. The museum, which dates back to the 19th century, is NYC's only family home that remains intact from that era. We installed the work of five designers — including Andrew Rumpler of Nine Stories, whose bar stools are shown here, and Colgate Searle, who made the masks behind them — amidst the beautiful time-capsule interior.
