Behind the Scenes

988 Madison Avenue: Our Interiors Shopping Guide

August 3, 2016

A behind the scenes look at our Madison Avenue store.
At ABC Carpet & Home

One of the things we’ve loved most about opening our store is making it feel like a home. We’ve been shopping non-stop for the perfect mix of found objects that make the space feel like one you want to live in. When we first started working on this project, one of the first places we went to was ABC Carpet & Home.

It’s just up the street from our showroom (making swinging by at lunch extra convenient) and has the best selection of one-of-a-kind Turkish and Moroccan rugs. When you go, block off some time – the store’s sixth floor is rug paradise and you could easily spend an entire day flipping through their offerings. We picked out two Turkish kilim rugs for the store to give the space a cool downtown, bohemian vibe.

Here are some of the other places we love shopping!

ABC Carpet & Home

Rugs, rugs and more rugs. Plus furniture, lighting and everything you need for your kitchen.

We love things with a story behind them and is great for finding unique vintage furniture, décor and lighting.


Aerin is a go-to for us when it comes to lighting – she has the best chandeliers!

Gracie Studio

Gracie’s hand painted wallpapers instantly transform a space.


For bathrobes, towels and bedding, Kassatex is one of the best.

Brimfield Antique Show

Taking place three times a year (you can find all the dates here), the annual antique show in Brimfield, Massachusetts is worth the trip! 

West Elm

For modern meets eclectic pieces, West Elm is the best.

Doyle Auction House

If your looking for unique furniture and art, start bidding on the latest offerings at Doyle Auction House!

William-Wayne & Co.

William-Wayne has an eclectic mix of all the things you didn’t know you needed, but totally need. The store on University in New York City is a favorite.


You’ll spend hours scrolling through the product selection on Chairish. It’s a cool assortment of vintage finds sold by other design lovers.
