For all of us in the interior design business, we’ve been hearing rumors about C.Wonder, a new type of retail shopping “experience,” for what seems like years now. Well, the secret finally got out last weekend with the grand opening of the flagship store in one of the country’s mega-design hubs, New York City. The atmosphere is like a mash-up of Anthropologie, Jonathan Adler and Tory Burch all let loose in a 72,000 square foot retail space. The coolest part? The store is laid out in five distinct “environments”—Palm Springs Modern, Hollywood Regency, English Townhouse, Vail Cabin and American Dream.
What we also couldn’t help but notice is that C.Wonder definitely has an inner child. The store is covered in bright, bold colors, exciting patterns and a whole-lotta whimsy.
They even had a huge bus across the street that just so happened to include some of our favorite nursery trends—alphabet letters, silhouette animals and bright happy colors.
And just in case you were thinking this store still might be too “adult,” check out the advertisements for the store opening—chalk art!
For now, the only open store is in SoHo, but there’s more on the way for other New York areas and New Jersey. There’s also talks of other locations throughout the country—Los Angeles please?
