After selling her mod bed linens through various retailers for the past 20 years, Swedish designer and owner Anki Spets has finally opened a 2,000-square-foot showroom of her own. The store’s crisp white walls highlight Spets’s colorful, geometric-print pillow shams ($55–$70) and duvets ($230–$490) draped across beds and hung neatly on the walls, though the bedding would jazz up even the most light-deprived New York apartments. In addition to Scandinavian-style solid-oak bed frames ($3,900–$4,300), nightstands ($450) and coffee tables ($600), Area sells a small line of kitchen accessories, including wooden cutting boards ($50–$170), mortar-and-pestle sets, ($50–$120) and spice mills ($80–$120) designed by Spets’s husband, Magnus Lundstrom.
