The Muji Store is opening it’s first large-scale retail store in Soho in the US on Friday, and designophiles couldn’t be more excited. I was able to see into the store last night as the workers were moving merchandise in, and it looks pretty similar in size and layout to the Tokyo store (shown above). There were textiles for home lining the back wall and sweaters and shirts lining the right wall. The most exciting part about the new store is all the larger scale furnishing items that you can’t order from overseas, and of course the electronic items will now be wired for US voltages. Stay tuned for more information and products as the details unfold.
