    We love a guy that can think outside the whole leather-chair-and-chrome-accents decorating box, which is one of the many reasons we're digging Hyden Yoo's exquisite West Village abode. Indeed, this buzzed-about designer let us into his pad (a long-term sublet from a pal)—on the first floor of a townhouse that looks just like Carrie Bradshaw's—and we're falling for the giant windows, incredible light, and high ceilings, not to mention the complete lack of the requisite bare wall and giant flatscreen combo.

Oh, and any straight man that sleeps with a sock monkey is worth a first-date. And hopefully a second.
