Once you’re celebrating design, Interior Design Shop suggests the following interior design shops for you to visit during Boutique Design New York 2017.
#1 ABC Carpet & Home
A veritable mecca of interior design, this venerable shop has been operating out of its Broadway location since Jerome Weinrib opened it as a carpet shop in 1961. Two decades later, his daughter Paulette Cole updated the company, adding “Home” to the store’s name and stocking its six floors with furniture, lighting, and accessories sourced from around the world (with an emphasis on fair-trade and sustainably sourced goods) and presented in dreamlike vignettes conceived by the store’s talented visual team.

When Pirch opened its Manhattan location last spring, a line formed around the block for the event. If that sounds unusual for an appliance store, it’s because Pirch is not your ordinary home gadget purveyor. The three-floor space contains multiple in-situ setups where prospective customers can try out top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures before they buy. If that doesn’t entice you, maybe the client list will: Ken Fulk, Iris Apfel, and Geoffrey Zakarian are all fans of the store.

#3 Jung Lee
Ever scrolled through an event planner’s Instagram page and wished you could re-create the looks yourself? Jung Lee, the party planner extraordinaire behind Fête NY, makes that wish a reality with her beautiful and well-stocked New York shop, where she offers some of the fabulous findings used in the over-the-top bashes she creates from Brooklyn to St. Barth’s.

#4 Herman Miller
The midcentury enthusiast will go mad for Herman Miller’s New York flagship, which spans seven floors of furniture, accessories, and textiles from the manufacturer, as well as designs from Geiger and DWR, and fabrics from Maharam. Though the flagship opened last year, its address shares a history with the company: The building housed George Nelson’s office following his tenure as Herman Miller’s design director from 1947 to 1972.

#5 The Future Perfect
Since 2003, David Alhadeff has celebrated emerging designers at his gallery and shop with one-of-a-kind pieces that are as functional as they are beautiful. Though The Future Perfect moved from Brooklyn to Great Jones Street in Manhattan’s East Village, the new space continues to be a destination for anyone curious or passionate about design.
