The top March 2016 design ideas highlight several dynamic retail concepts that use design language to create a unique, aspirational experience.
De Balkonie is a new retail concept in Amsterdam entirely dedicated to the decoration of small balconies. Given that 75% of the city's residents have small balconies in their homes, the store seems poised for success. De Balkonie's inventory ranges from small furniture and decor accents to a selection of lush plant life.
Meanwhile, World of Niche is an exclusive New York City sneaker shop that can be accessed by appointment only and has a no-photos policy. Located on Bleecker Street, the appointment-only boutique carries only three pairs of shoes at a time (with each carried in three colorways) that are kept in a large brass orb suspended from the ceiling, making the product only viewable from the inside.
