The MoMA Design Store was such an interesting place to investigate.
We visited the SoHo, NYC store.  MoMA stands for Museum of Modern Art.

According to their website, they "exemplify good design with a well-edited selection of products 
highlighting the latest in materials, production, and design concepts from around the world."

I was immediately drawn to this River Stones Bowl.  It was designed in Italy exclusively for MoMA.
The goal was to suspend the tiny pebbles in clear acrylic, giving the impression of  the way you look through the water to see them in nature. There' s also a River Stones Platter.

Such a fun interpretation of a vase! The Outline Vase is made of porcelain, designed in Japan. 
I think every home should have a touch of whimsy!

Speaking of fun...a colorful zipper purse, 
and the Keybag, designed in Portugal, which is composed of almost 400 plastic keyboard keys.

Here's the Distortion Candlestick. Isn't it kooky?

The 2 Carat Cup  would be a clever gift for that newly engaged young lady you may know!
That's a Swarovski crystal! It's available in either silver or gold. 
The cute Toast It Coasters are packaged like a loaf of bread!

Mid-century wall clocks! Each one designed by George Nelson.
Beginning at the top and going clockwise, (could I resist?):
Nelson Wall Clock, Sunburst Clock, and Eye Clock.
