This Is Where Our NY Editors Discover All Their Home Gems

Updated 05/29/18

Don't get us wrong—major retailers like IKEA and Target have a wealth of home décor options, but there's something satisfying about walking into a lesser-known boutique and discovering a collection of curated wares. In a thoughtfully styled home, they're the talking points: the orb-shaped vase you discovered at a pop-up or the handmade pottery sourced from a little store upstate. They have a story and origin that mass-produced wares can't rival.

New York City is peppered with such boutiques and since half our team is based in the city, we're privy to some of the best. From painterly patterned linens at the brand-new Rebecca Atwood store in SoHo to the eclectic mix of vases and accessories at Coming Soon in the Lower East Side, these are the best décor shops in NYC that are not to be missed. 

Here's a peek inside MyDomaine editors' little black book.
