Here are some of our favorite home decor boutiques:
Francis Interiors, Inc | 452 W 47th Street

Toumbakaris’s portfolio includes a naked-floored Central Park West bachelor pad punctuated with grey-washed walls and cow-skin lounger, as well as an elegant Upper West Side prewar apartment featuring pale pine kitchen cabinetry, contemporary chandeliers, and a white padded sofa. He can work his magic on your Midtown West apartment, too.
Furnish Green | 1261 Broadway
Looking to add a touch of Mad Men modishness or La La Land luxury to your apartment? Furnish Green adds 5-15 new items to its Midtown showroom every single weekday.

Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market | West 39th at 9th Avenue
For over 40 years, this collection of antique and bric-a-brac stalls has rewarded the intrepid shopper. Every Saturday and Sunday, come rain or shine, the stall owners rock up, pitch up, and sell their wares. What you might find on any given day is anyone’s guess—maybe it’ll be a 19th-century chest of drawers; perhaps a Persian rug, mosaics, a watercolor by a long-lost painter, or even a brand-new record collection on vinyl. Whatever you discover, you’re sure to have a ball as you chat and haggle with the people on this unique patch of Hell’s Kitchen.
