    81 Spring St., 646-613-1367, SoHo, Manhattan
    If wandering around the world-renowned Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) /venues/the-museum-of-modern-art-moma sounds like a nice way to spend a weekend afternoon, you might consider making a visit to the MoMA Design Store across the street on West 53rd Street. If you're not in Midtown, however, be sure to swing by the SoHo location of the shop. Stop in for breakfast at the perpetually hip French bistro Balthazar /venues/balthazar-restaurant, then hop over to the warehouse-like space to explore home goods, jewelry and more that rival the museum itself in terms of artistry. Top sellers include hugging salt and pepper shakers and a loop-design candelabra. Desk chairs, stools and coffee tables are among the pricier items. The emporium also offers posters and prints, available both matted and framed, that replicate the works of MoMA-featured artists like Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso and many more.
