Join Us for GOOD Design NYC: December 1 and 3

Posted by Alissa Walker

In a few weeks, we're bringing together two of our favorite things-New York City and GOOD Design-again. That's right, New York was actually the place we had our very first design event, as part of GOOD December in 2007. Since then we've visited other cities-GOOD Design LA and GOOD Design SF-and now, because we're so thrilled to return to New York, we're planning not just one, but two events. That's thanks to our good friends at Nau, the incredible sustainably-minded active-wear and outdoor clothing company, who invited us to be a part of their here/Nau/NYC storefront, which is open in Soho until December 31 (so be sure to buy lots of their down scarves for everyone on your lists). Check out the details, and be sure to RSVP. We'd love to see you at one-or both-events!
