My ongoing obsession with cushion (pillows) collecting (yep, true) led to the discovery of Luru Home. The founders Claire and Lisa met in Shanghai, spied the beautiful indigo textiles and Luru Home was born. Claire is now back in Brooklyn and they've kindly shared their secret cities below...pass it on...
Boutique Pilang Palang - bold yet classic Chinese design for the home
Bar Mokkos - shochu cocktails too easy to toss back
Restaurant Xibo - scrumptious Xinjiang fare
Coffee Farine - Paris of the East
Beauty Zen Massage the perfect nightcap
Chinatown, New York
Boutique No6 store - vintage and contemporary
Bar Leadbelly - might we suggest the Burma Shave?
Restaurant Nom Wah Tea Parlor - dim sum with a mid-century vibe
Coffee Dimes - quirky Canal Street breaky joint
Beauty Mian Tian Sing - known for its no-frills, no-fuss, fantastic blow-outs
