We asked design cognoscente Urte Tylaite, the founder of NYC-based jewelry line and store Still House, to share a few of her favorite places in New York City to shop, eat, and see art. With an eye geared towards minimalism and simplicity, Urte takes us from a small rare books store in the East Village to Queens to see the work of sculptor Isamu Noguchi.
