I travelled throughout the USA last week, buying furniture and looking for inspiration. Stay tuned this week for more posts about some of my wonderful finds.
Strangely enough I found inspiration in the form of a Haircut, or a hair dresser.
Towards the end of the trip my hair was looking slightly jet lagged. I was staying at the Ace Hotel (29th and Broadway) and discovered Rudy's Barber shop under the hotel. I whipped straight in for a slick back and sides.
The basement level shop is only mildly visible from street. It's cool industrial interior made me feel like I was a New York local circa 1962, and the staff were inspirationally casual in a New York kind of way.
The hair cut managed to be one of my best, not just for the smooth slick back it produced but it somehow managed to cut away my jet lag. Add a New York 'small' latte (the size of a can of coke) and I was ready to hit the furniture stores with vigour.
If you're in town and need a cut, don't go anywhere else.
Stay tuned for more posts from my travels….
