New York shopping instution Barneys has unveiled a new website, complete with online shopping (though for only a very limited selection of products). Gothamist is intrigued by the bizarre plush tree stump with two cubbie holes (go to "Shopping," then "Home & Baby Gifts," then finally "Baby Gifts") selling for $150 - can this fit cats or bunnies? And if yes, we want them to create some sort of menagerie in our apartment.
Another great feature is in "About Us" - some of art director Simon Doonan's fabulous holiday windows are available for viewing. We love this 1999 window of James Brown made of CDs and afro picks. We're sure Simon designed the windows at Barnes & Noble promoting his book, Wacky Chicks.
