Indulge in a bit of retail therapy via our gathering of five must-visit modern design shops around the world. Stops include a Buenos Aires storefront specializing in locally crafted wares and a vintage showroom in Helsinki.
Bauer Pottery, Japan
Storied California ceramics company Bauer Pottery opens its first showroom in Tokyo, a mirror of the original in Los Angeles.
Aesop, San Francisco
Located on the shopper's paradise of Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights, the cork-and-pine shop cuts an understated figure when compared to flashy retail outlets like Jonathan Adler or Marc Jacobs down the block.
