Not every New Yorker is fortunate enough to live in the same apartment for their entire New York life. Aside from those lucky enough to be homeowners or live in a rent-stabilized apartment, locals tend to regularly pack up and move from one place to the next for a variety of reasons. Of course, that’s not to say that a rental abode can’t feel like home. Even some luxury bedding, a beautiful sofa, or a plush area rug can add warmth and style to a Big Apple living space. Shop these seven home decor stores in NYC, and you’ll find everything you need to create a stylish apartment.
Jung Lee NY, 25 W 29th St
If you’re looking for one-of-a-kind pieces that you can’t find in larger chain stores, then head to Jung Lee NY – a high-end home store that sources gorgeous décor and entertainment collections from around the world. From sleek barware to butterfly printed tea sets and luxurious cashmere throws, this shop is where you’ll find the perfect accessories for a stylish apartment in the city.
The Future Perfect, 55 Great Jones St
New Yorkers who love bold, contemporary décor with an architectural appeal will feel right at home in The Future Perfect. There’s nothing ‘cutesy’ about this home store’s inventory, as it has a more cerebral, art-driven aesthetic. We love The Future Perfect’s collection of sturdy, almost masculine coffee tables, as well as their Goddard Chaise lounge chair – a gorgeous statement piece for any NYC living room.
Flair New York, 88 Grand St
As a home decor store where posh modernism meets vintage sophistication, Flair New York is where the most stylish interior design fanatics will love to shop. Browse their collections to find stunning mid-century furniture, black lacquer Chinoiserie-inspired dining chairs, Venetian white-opal glassware, and more.
Matter, 405 Broome St
Showcasing home goods from independent designers around the world, Matter is the perfect place for Gotham’s minimalists who can appreciate an avant-garde twist. Some eye-catching finds include Matter’s Palette Table (a geometric design inspired by an artist’s paint palette), gorgeously painted wooden trays by British artist Richard Woods, and a solid marble file holder – perfect for the most stylish work-from-home diva.
ALT for Living, 148 W 28th St
For those of you unsure of how you’d like to decorate your NYC apartment, a visit to ALT for Living can help spark your creativity. This home store is known for their floor treatments, hardware, wallpaper, and an incredible inventory of fabrics. Bonus points for anyone who can sew their own drapes and throw pillows.
ABC Carpet & Home, 888 Broadway
Few home decor stores in NYC are as synonymous with stylish apartments as ABC Carpet & Home. Think of this place as the mecca for all things lifestyle related including furniture, carpets and rugs, lighting, jewelry, bed and bath, kitchen goods, and even beauty products. Many collections are on the pricier side, but ABC also has some phenomenal sales with discounts up to 80% off.
Fishs Eddy, 889 Broadway
There’s nothing stuffy or pretentious about Fishs Eddy. With cooking and entertaining collections for New Yorkers of all budgets, Fish’s Eddy on Broadway is easy to peruse for hours on end. If you like cheeky serve ware, check out the “Brooklynese” collection that includes a butter dish, sugar bowl, and creamer with the words, “Buttah,” “Shuguh,” and “Creamuh” printed on them respectively.
