You're over Ikea but not quite ready for Dakota Jackson. Enter BoConcept, 105 Mad [30th] 212.686.8188,, which is opening July 7th or thereabouts.

The Danish neo-modern furniture has a great look, mixing clean geometric lines with the occasional swoop or curve. There are BoConcept stores around the world now and especially popular items include the shell swivel chair (pictured) that starts at $499 and club chairs from $849. Accompanying ottomans start at $369. Price depends on choice of fabric.

Flexibility is a big part of the idea here. Their sofa, for example, can be customized with different legs, arms, cushions, and fabric. This gives you, they have calculated, over 12,900 possible configurations. Even Dakota Jackson can't match that.
