retail inspiration : ABC carpet and home

ABC Carpet & Home is a New York City institution. To call it a place for visual inspiration is an understatement. There is so much to look a and too many things to want! Its filled with new and antique furniture and accessories – many items are unique to the store. I visited it last week with my sister (who is also a designer) because I thought she would enjoy it as much as I do.

Inside Pipa Tapas Y Mas (directly below), a great Spanish tapas restaurant located inside the store features many gorgeous chandeliers and mirrors that are available for purchase.

The second floor houses the modern and modern antique furniture and is my absolute favourite. Below are a few images of the store and some of the delicious merchandise.

I absolutely loved this media cabinet by Wüd Furniture
Another beautiful (and similar) cabinet by Palo Samko
I loved all the mid-century modern antiques.
