A New Pop-up Store At West Elm By David Stark

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne.
Now you see it, now you don’t.  David Stark’s  Purely Paper Flower Shop at the Broadway and 62nd street outpost of West Elm opened yesterday and will close today.  As to be expected from designer David Stark, the pop-up is highly creative, whimsical and earth friendly, if a bit impractical.  (Not sure who would wear paper wellies,  or buy a paper covered watering can).  Everything is made from old books. I was there at the opening yesterday and snapped a few shots for you to enjoy.  David is sooo clever.

The art is one thing I would rush over to buy.  Botanicals made of paper looked great and super cool.  Prices ranged from $54.97 to $149.97.

And finally, a message that all bloggers should heed.
