It's been over a month since I returned from New York for Modenus' BlogTour, and I am still sorting photos and emails. The trip was truly overwhelming on so many levels. One perfect afternoon, we spent the day walking around SOHO to design stores, such as Ochre, The New Traditionalists, Paul Rubenstein Ltd, Canvas, to name a few. - David John
