WantedDesign has turned into one of the biggest pioneers for New York City design over the last few years. In addition to hosting two major events during NYCxDESIGN each year, they also have a few standalone stores in the city. Their first store opened in 2011 in West Chelsea’s Historic District, their second (Brooklyn-based) location opened up less than three years ago, and earlier this year they opened not one but two locations in the Seaport District.
Now, just in time for the Holiday rush, WantedDesign opened up a holiday market featuring artisanal goods to sate all your gift-giving needs at one of their newly opened South Seaport locations.
From Elodie Blanchard pillows to Juniper LED desk lamps, to Gautier décor and By Boe jewelry, WantedDesign’s Seaport location has a little bit of everything to satisfy the design lover in your life. This year’s holiday market features a hyper-curated list of vendors reminiscent of previous design shows, and offers an eclectic range of shopping choices.
Located at 6 Fulton Street and hosting over twenty vendors, patrons can not only pursue the best in curated home goods, but they can also soak in the panoramic city views of the downtown area and the Brooklyn skyline. Assouline, the “luxury brand on culture,” is there for satisfy your ultimate coffee table book needs; Hyfen will be slinging their elegant art objects/home accessories, and Malle London will offer travel and adventure accessories (in case you have getaway plans for the holidays).
Rather than trek around SoHo or Midtown hunting for the perfect gift among the crowds, the Seaport District offers a refreshing, festive alternative. After shopping, take a stroll by the East River, check out the historic boats in the harbor, and grab a bite at any one of the amazing restaurants near South Street Seaport.
The holiday market will run until the end of December, and New Yorkers and tourists alike are free to join in on the holiday festivities (like card-making classes) and take in the beauty of the Seaport District during the holiday season. It’s a must-visit destination in the city—holiday time or not.
