Contemporary furniture? Love it. Instantly recognizable (and much-copied) standards? Not so much. For fresh, unique lines, we head to the Morson Collection, where husband and wife Gregory and Caroline Morson handselect each European manufacturer they carry for quality and craftsmanship. (This is the only store in the U.S. that’s authorized to sell the obsessively detailed Tresserra brand.) Spanish-born Caroline is a fount of continental sensibility and old-world warmth, a perfect consultant for both design experts and those just venturing into the modern aesthetic.
