What's The Matter?

I was at a dinner party tonight for Domino magazine when a nice young, unassuming gentleman sat beside me and introduced himself as Jamie Gray. In making conversation, I asked him if he was in the business and to my delight he said he owned a couple of shops by the name of Matter. For those of you who may not know, Matter is one of THE most stylish and expertly curated design shops in New York City and I've been a huge fan ever since they opened their original post in Brooklyn. As you can imagine, I had quite a bit to talk to him about-all of which was fascinating. He's working on some great ideas, but I'll leave it to him to share those when he's ready. In the meantime, check out the shop's website where you'll find this Aalto doorstop created by another brilliant whiz kid Tobias Wong.
