Look Contemporary in a timeless way.  The Soho store features a large Origins marquee wrapping around the storefront, with the logo as negative space on a field of beautifully distressed metal.  Big floor to ceiling windows on both sides facing onto the street corner fill the shop with light.  Inside the clean, warm-toned selling floor are test areas and checkout counters designed to allow visitors to flow through the space, keeping you close to the products on the shelves that fill the two inner walls.  As you enter, stacks of woven reed baskets serve as natural, useable versions of supermarket-style plastic carriers.  There are several sinks at testing areas for you to use when testing products.  The staff is attractive and they wear tastefully simple uniforms.  As you peruse the various products on the white wall shelves, you are struck by the superb packaging design and the lovely soft colors of the products inside the semi-opaque containers.  And on the way out, grab a "peace of mind" white gumball from the machine at the door.
Vibe Very energetic, friendly, happy, and the staff is knowledgeable about all the product lines.
