After testing the concept of the “neighborhood showroom” in Los Angeles, direct-to-consumer outdoor furniture brand Outer has opened its first New York showroom in Tribeca atop the residential rooftop of a client, rather than the traditional brick-and-mortar.

DDC has opened a 7,000-square-foot outlet in Manhattan offering samples from the showroom floor.

(East 40th Street, 11th Floor, New York)

Japanese lifestyle brand Muji has launched a pop-up in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, which will be open from now until January 2020. It highlights the company’s history, projects and products; a few household items will be available to buy. (545 Broadway, New York)
