Growing up in New York, I can safely say that it's a hectic place. Even though you always are on the run, it's a special place in my heart.
Living in New York can be a very stressful experience. I should know since I was born there. A store like Zazen Bear sounds like a wonderful retreat for anyone who needs a few minutes of peace time.
The everyday life we all lead is frenetic and overcome by millions of stimuli; there is never enough time or peace. Zazen Bear, a new Zen retail concept store at 497 Broome Street, wants to help New Yorkers find their moment of inner peace. And all New Yorkers can use some peace of mind, especially when they are riding the subway to work!
Just the way the building is set up, it seems like it's completely at peace. I wish I still lived in New York to actually go in and see! The entire building just screams "zen" from the pictures!
Through a carefully crafted collection of products that range from jewelry to home furnishing, Zazen Bear offers a unique retail experience that starts when entering the 2,400 sq. ft. store. Spread out on two floors, connected by an open staircase and a harmonious live-plant vertical garden, visitors are lead through the three interlocked circular rooms into a voyage of discovery and sensory exploration.
My personal favorite is the bear bracelet. It's delicate and gentle, plus will always remind you of that moment of peace you can have. And I really loved the commercials for Zazen bear too. Each one included a new item sold at Zazen bear and they all seem wonderful.
Inspired by the idea that everything and everybody is connected, each item is carefully crafted to evoke a sense of harmony, relaxation and tranquility when touched, worn or used to decorate the home. Incorporating precious materials like diamonds, sapphires, gold and silver the jewelry collection spans from the Connected Ring Series designed to represent the connection of the mind and the universe where our inner self intersects with the world around us; the Zazen bear monogram earrings featuring the iconic bear that represents harmony and inner peace; the Posey Bracelets of Balance, Meditation and Calm designed as a reminder to seek these three elements in the day; the Inner Stellar necklace a reminder to embrace the constellation of stars that represents our dreams and aspirations.
If you're ever in Soho, I suggest heading over to Zazen Bear for a moment of peace.
