If there’s anyone that can claim to be a professional traveller, it’s Josh Udashkin, the founder of *smart* luggage company, Raden (the suitcase charges your phone and communicates with an app to let you know whether it’s made a narrow connection among a bunch of other actually useful functions). Udashkin had the idea to begin with because he was on a plane more than he was at home in his former role as Aldo’s head of global development. And because he’s still traveling constantly as an entrepreneur with his own company, his apartment, a high-rise in Downtown Brooklyn with the view, has become his sanctuary and getaway. The view certainly makes it special, as does being 24 floors up—which actually ensures one’s living space is quiet (the ultimate New York luxury, TBH). But his tendency for collecting and customizing furniture, keeping hundreds of books, and tossing a Hermès blanket here and there doesn’t hurt in the whole making a house a home situation either.
