My favorite shop in NYC was John Derian. Please excuse the less than stellar quality of these pics. Some are from my Instagram feed and all are from my phone. (I got tired of lugging my big camera around every day.) He has two shops located next to each other and everything about them are amazing. The displays, the wares, the lighting....everything. Here is a sampling of both...
I thought the vintage pendant lighting above the counter was gorgeous. I can't imagine trying to pick one, they were all so beautiful and unique.
I bought some beautiful linens. When I brought them to the counter, the sales clerk asked me if I wanted a new set...apparently, the ones I picked out were washed. But I liked them soft and worn looking so I bought all of mine this way. If you are going to NYC...I would make sure to add this to my shops to visit!
