Decor: New York Commercial Spaces

While in New York this weekend I saw a ton of great design in hotels, restaurants—even a gentlemen's club. I love Boston but I notice that the design in commercial spaces isn't as extreme or challenging as it could be. My initial theory is this: In New York, there's more clutter to break through. There are so many hotels, so many restaurants, so many bars, clubs, and museums. How do you stand out? How are you remembered? Interior design plays a huge role in this. I got to see some great spaces this weekend—and some incredible design details.
