Hi everyone!

Today I realized it’s been over a year since I moved into my apartment solo and it feels great. Before I always had a revolving door of roommates and different random pieces of furniture so I never really felt like I could decorate.. plus I was on the tightest budget possible.

Now that I have a place that’s all my own, I’ve slowly filled it up with furniture and accessories that fit my style (although to be honest, I’m still figuring out what exactly my style is) and that fit my wallet!

I’ve shopped everywhere, from higher end to budget and wanted to share a couple of my favorite home stores. I’ve organized the list alphabetically by store type, as I thought that was
easiest and then jotted a couple notes of which specific departments or items are the true standouts.

 

 

The Best NYC Furniture Stores

For Every Budget

For your upper east sider or mega yuppie, ABC is the place for 7 floors of high end fixtures, furniture and flatware. I like to come here for some inspiration and to browse the gorgeous wall of Astier de Villatte ceramics. Sadly, have yet to purchase anything here but my wallet thanks me.

Boho meets bougie. I love to check in on Anthropologie online to see their home & kitchen section although there are select stores in NYC that carry home pieces including Rockefeller Center and Chelsea Market. Best for: cute kitchen flatware, bowls & mugs; statement rugs and mirrors; velvet couches and daybeds. If you love color, pattern and whimsical, this is the home store for you.

Arhaus is where I got my comfortable yet chic blue velvet couch. They make gorgeous home pieces similar to Restoration Hardware and Anthropologie and at approximately the same price point. I recommend their couches and bedframes in luxurious fabrics.

I love CB2’s kitchenware in particular. They have gorgeous marble pieces, cocktail glasses and serving platters. I also really like their furniture, like this modern sleigh bed and in general they focus on modern furniture. Occasionally, they’ll do fun celebrity collaborations and they also have a “studio” which produces apartment sized furniture.

Dwell features a warm, modern interior that will satisfy both classic design lovers and those who prefer modern pieces. I love their safari animal figurines and their understated but luxurious couches and coffee tables. You can also shop Dwell online here, as I think they recently shuttered their Soho store. Also check out sister brands Wayfair, Joss & Main, All Modern and Birch Lane.

I just visited the Ethan Allen store recently and loved the understated, easy luxury of all the pieces. The store spans two large floors on the UES and offers a number of customization options for fabrics and furniture. For anyone with kids, they have a number of baby and child rooms and recently launched a Disney collaboration which I thought was adorable.

Home Goods

This is probably my favorite “walk in and browse” store since you never know what you’ll find and chances are, you’ll walk away happy. I am lucky to have one close to my apartment so I try to pop in once a week the same time that I grocery shop and luckily my parents have 3 in their vicinity back home so I always ask her to check around for me too. With Home Goods / TJ Maxx / Marshalls, each store receives it’s own merchandise and no two stores have exactly the same things (although you will find many similar items).

It’s a great place to pick up inexpensive yet stylish staples. Think basic white sheets, bath mats and towels, small cookware accessories, etc. It’s also a great place to find one of a kind bigger furniture pieces without the hefty price tag. I picked up some my dining chairs from Home Goods as well as my entryway bench (photo in this earlier post) + another bench (I have too many benches) + small items like wooden cheese boards, marble bookends and platters, cute cheese knives, etc. I’ve linked some photos from my Instagram account to the Home Goods specific pieces.

Now I don’t know for sure, but I believe that Home Goods gets its furniture stock from the merchants that ship to Overstock, Wayfair, etc as I’ve seen the same items online pop in and out of Home Goods. There might be a nick or a small defective piece to the stuff at Home Goods so definitely inspect before you buy! You can also shop the Home section of TJ Maxx online so I do that as well.

Ikea

Website

 


Everyone knows Ikea! When I first graduated college, everything I had was Ikea and although it was a pain to put together it was a great price and very solid quality. I bought another Ikea dresser just to tide me over until I find one I really like and I was super disappointed with the quality. I’ve heard that they outsourced their manufacturing to China and while things are definitely more design chic now, I won’t be re-buying any Ikea furniture items since the quality is so terrible.

What I do like: inexpensive kitchen accessories (I bought a coffee milk frother here for $2 or so), herb jars / container type things, faux fur rugs, things like that!

There are two locations in Brooklyn and one a little farther out in Elizabeth. I recommend browsing the online website first and calling in to see if the store carries it in stock before making the trip. A lot of their very popular items will sell out. Also if you’re thinking of redesigning your kitchen – check out Ikea. They make really gorgeous and highly functional kitchen cabinets. The only downside is you need to use their kitchen cabinet software to design it out and the system can be slightly clunky. It does allow for a great level of personal customization – which you’ll find yourself either loving or making you rip out your hair.

Jonathan Adler

There are a number of physical Jonathan Adler stores in New York and I always love popping in to see what’s new. He specializes in “pop culture-y” kind of furniture – think bright colors, modern shapes and fun quirky accents. I absolutely love his reading chairs and bar carts but am saving up as they’re currently out of my budget!

Website

 


One Kings Lane is primarily an online website (shop it here) with one of a kind pieces and great deals but if you ever want some help with designing your rooms, pop by this studio for a 1 on 1 consult. The loft like space is divided into “rooms” and my personal favorite is the retro kitchen. One Kings Lane switches up the decor every season or so so you’ll always have new interior inspo to look forward to!

The loft space only houses a small curated selection. For full stock, shop One Kings Lane online.

Pottery Barn

I love Pottery Barn for their holiday decor, candle holders and bed/bath furniture. The store in Columbus Circle has a great downstairs showcasing some bedrooms and bath options and they sell gorgeous bath fixtures. On my wishlist is some desk accessories and glass bath containers – I usually browse their small accent pieces.

I also bought my bedframe from them as I was looking specifically for a tufted, higher back frame of high quality. If you want the tufted bedframe look without a huge price tag, check out any of the online sites. If you want really beautiful fabric that covers the full front and back, buy it from Pottery Barn. They also assemble which was very helpful. Pottery Barn sister brands include William Sonoma Home and West Elm.

Restoration Hardware

Ah, Restoration Hardware. For a long time, I wanted my apartment to be a walking RH catalogue. They build these massive “concept stores” in large cities and literally everything in them is drool worthy… but not at all made for the tight confines of the average NYC apartment. I did save up to buy some items here like my bed nightstands and a couch.

I give RH a huge thumbs up in the design department but wasn’t too impressed with the furniture quality. It definitely is pricey and originally I bought a bedroom chest but the drawers didn’t have soft close and kept arriving with nicks so if you really love the design spring for it, but for quality and function maybe look elsewhere. They have hands down the best customer service, I have to say!

I used to pop by this store when they were still in Tribeca, but haven’t been to the latest. Steven Alan Home stocks succulents, cozy throw blankets and kitchen ceramics. Expect everything to have that sensible, pared down sense of style Steven Alan is so famed for.

Take the nondescript elevator straight into this light filled, aerie Soho masterpiece. The interior design “store” is artfully designed as an apartment with everyday home furnishings and objects lying around – albeit of the luxurious kind. Admire the cobblestone streets from the velvet couch, browse a modern closet of epic designer proportions and contemplate a bath in the freestanding tub.

Website (30% off select items online)

 


I always like to pop into West Elm for their accessories. They constantly have new dinnerware and flatware collections that suit practically everyone’s tastes – from classic white dinnerware to glam stuff for a new year’s eve dinner to retro Italian coffee cups. I always want all the dinner plates here! They have centerpieces, dessert plates, napkin rings etc too. I’ve been eyeing their container storage ceramics for things like coffee, tea and flour forever – West Elm can be a little bit pricier but has frequent sales.

I like to browse West Elm in store, especially for the large furniture pieces. They have a great mix of different sofas but in my experience you always want to sit on a sofa before buying to make sure you like things like, how firm/soft it is, how high/low the backrest is, how sloped/stiff the back is etc. I’ve heard from friends that their furniture is not the best quality but they definitely win in the design department. You can see the current catalogue online here.

West Elm is the more contemporary sister brand to Pottery Barn and William Sonoma Home.
