BeiMoDian

Opened in 2002, Beimodian (pronounced bay-more-dean) claims title of the only forum in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to high-style Asian contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories. Designs are distinguished by soul-calming minimalism, fine construction and innovative applications of traditional craft. The lighting collection is small but memorable: narrow, low-slung table lamps with satin and rosewood bases (another series effectively enshrines the lamp wire in an open-sided box), and a remarkable Ping floor lantern with full-height shade.
