The feeling inside the lofty, 3,500-square-foot QuintoSol—lit by eucalyptus and vanilla candles, with a soundtrack by the Gypsy Kings—is disarmingly sensual. This "Mexi-chic" SoHo boutique (along with its sister store on Madison Avenue) stocks dynamic furniture and home accessories that have clearly been selected by perfectionists. The four brothers running the company are from Mexico City and are committed to promoting imaginative contemporary design and traditional Mexican craftsmanship—meaning every single piece displayed on the shelves and floor is produced by hand without screws or bolts. An astonishing folding nine-foot table ($4,300), joined with pieces of ciricote, a Mexican dark wood, collapses to 55 inches (imagine—no bolts, no screws!). Consider also QuintoSol's whimsical handblown Galaxy glass bottles in a variety of hues ($250 each). QuintoSol, 250 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012; 212-334-2255. Also 937 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10021; 212-734-5653; www.quintosol.com.
