Now that you’ve put a down payment on your super-slick TriBeCa apartment, what are you going to sleep on when you move in?
Not to worry, Duxiana has got you covered with their “DUX Bed For Life” collection — hand-crafted artisan beds that range from around $6,000 to $12,000. The Swedish bedmakers are opening shop in TriBeCa by the end of this month at 161 Hudson St. (212-777-0771). This TriBeCa outpost will be the first one in the country to offer some of Duxiana’s non-bed furniture like the “Fatoljer och Stolar” (chairs) and the “Soffor” (sofa).
Of course, if you’re going to live in the neighborhood, you’re going to need to eat, too. The culinary scene down there will up its game with Masa Takayama’s new Tetsu, at 78 Leonard St., which should open in late January or early February of next year. The three-level restaurant will consist of a Robatayaki room on the ground floor (grilled skewers); an Izakaya lounge on the mezzanine level and an Omakase (chef’s choice) prix-fixe menu featuring sushi and sashimi on the cellar level.
And while sleeping and eating are necessary, where does the TriBeCa resident go to unwind? Spanish spa Aire answered that question last month when it opened up an 16,000-square-foot outpost (its first in the US) at 88 Franklin St. (212-274-3777). Resembling a Roman bath, Aire features six different kinds of baths and pools: a hot pool, cool pool, ice pool, salt pool, warm pool and 1,000-jet pool, as well as a steam room and a relaxation room. In less than a month, it’s adding an “exclusive experience” room, which consists of soaking in an upstairs tub, being feted with wine or champagne and having an elaborate massage. (Either with “hot candle wax, or Indian technique, or something like that,” says Silvia Barnett, a press representative for Aire.) Treatments range from $75 to $500.
