IStock 000062794888 Small

Whether you’ve lived in your apartment for a few days or a few years, some thoughtfully selected pieces of furniture and objets d’art can help you transform it into a place you can call “home.” With luxury NYC real estate, the detailing starts with the architects and ends with you. In order to elevate your gorgeous abode into the realm of the extraordinary, start by visiting a few of the most exciting and eclectic home goods shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn:

John Derian Company | 6 East Second Street

This upscale bazaar offers an eclectic mix of home goods ranging from distinctive decoupage plates from Derian to paperweights and including stationery, textiles, pottery, and more. It’s hard to pass by without being drawn in to examine the gorgeous array of items that makes one feel as though they’ve stepped into a cabinet of curiosities.

Sterling Place | 363 Atlantic Avenue

You’ll find everything from unusual stationery to antique-map reproductions, gifts, and cherrywood Danish Modern dressers in this shop’s unique selection, which also includes furniture such as bookcases and side tables.

Desiron | 200 Lexington Ave. Suite 702

Eye-catching pieces of contemporary wood furniture paired with iron are the hallmarks of this high-end studio. Visit the 4,000-square-foot showroom, or arrange for a tour of the factory where everything is made in Kenilworth, New Jersey.

Sprout Home | 44 Grand Street

Sprout is one of the city’s most original go-to shops for those seeking to add a bit (or a lot) of green to their home. Plants, planters, how-to books, and classes are sure to help and  inspire as you set out to beautify your home. Still a little worried about your so-called “brown thumb”? Start with a botanical candle and take it from there.

David Weeks Studio | 38 Walker Street

Founded in Brooklyn two decades ago, DWS continues to distinguish itself by creating an amazing array of sculptural furniture, lighting, and accessories. Visiting their Tribeca studio is like moving through an ever-changing gallery: You’ll never think about furniture and light fixtures the same way again.
