Ace Hotel Pops Up in Tokyo

Ace Hotel began in Seattle and spread its wings to Portland, Palm Springs, and New York, becoming a boutique hotel chain that I can't help but simply love — see all my coverage (and tours!) of the hotels. Now Ace is headed for world domination, as it's teamed up with Japanese retailer Isetan Shinjuku to debut a popup shop for the holidays in Tokyo.

The shop, open now through Dec. 25, will showcase gifts in line with Ace's bohemian aesthetic and affinity for "uncluttered comfort." The products include collaborations with Pendleton Woolen Mills, Evan Hecox, Rudy's Barbershops, Project No. 8, Dean Markley, Wing & Horns, Mackintosh, and many others — many of which you may have seen in the rooms of their stateside accommodations.

I'm both really excited and really bummed about this, since a trip to Tokyo is not in my sights. At the same time, this seems to be a natural extension for the design-minded hotelier, which already cites retailer as one of its titles: some locations sell furnishings from the rooms and even artwork. Anyone in Tokyo going to check this out? I wonder if that gorgeous file cabinet ships overseas . . .

Augh! I was in Tokyo last summer... and at Ace NYC in Sept. Guess I missed out on the popup---but--what a great idea! Hey, if the masterminds behind Ace want to open a popup elsewhere (Houston, say), let me know. :-)
