Storefronting is Curbed's regular look at the changing retail scene, with an emphasis on how it impacts neighborhoods. Opening a store? See a store that's opening? Send the deets. We have a special place in our hearts for those who also include digital photos.
Oh CB2, rebelling against your suburban parents, Crate & Barrel— what a hot mess you are, all particle board and decorative Buddhas. Sure, we'll give you credit for the Marimekko, and, well, a carefully chosen ripoff comes in handy from time to time— a little tromp l'oeil, if you will. So welcome to Union Square, kiddo. EST: summer, 2008.
