IIKH Retail Store in NYC
The three siblings behind TreeHugging retail business IIKH, located on the cusp of Manhattan’s Meat Packing District and West Chelsea, created a home-and-lifestyle shop that’s more than just an eco-enterprise, it's a way of life (or, at least, should be.) The 670-square-foot space stocks eco-friendly products for bath and body, home, baby, pet, gourmet, and other specialty items, with prices ranging from a mere $4 to upwards of seven grand—so there’s really something for everyone. Better yet, the space touts refurbished concrete floors, custom-designed modular fixtures fashioned from reclaimed wood, innovative wood composites, and eco-friendly resins. To top it off, they used low-VOC paints and adhesives, energy-efficient lighting, and materials including bamboo to deck out their more-hip-than-hippy store.
From luxurious organic sheets, to lamps made from coconut shells, to perfect baby blankets, IIKH has a tremendously well-edited selection of gear. We particularly like these beautiful porcelain cups ($21 each), which use all-natural tints and glazes. British sculptor Hortense Suleyman handcrafts them using all natural tints and glazes that are completely lead-, chemical-, and toxin-free, putting an end to that old paper-versus-porcelain debate. ::IIKH [by MO]
