NYC’s 3 Best Home Stores

Though we've been waxing lyrical about fall fashion lately, we've still got brain space for other things. While we've already started switching out our closets, we've also been taking a closer look at our home environment. September is a fresh season, and we think our casas need a seasonal mini-makeover. Whether it's finally time to replace your parents' hand-me-down couch, or you're just fiending for some statement pieces, we've put together a hit-list of the 3 best NYC home stores to update your house in a hot minute. And, you may wanna get out the floor plans—we've got a hot deal on each of our perfect picks!
1.Darr: Vintage pieces make this shop a little pricier than our other picks, but it's definitely worth the extra dough. Take a gander at a crazy selection of taxidermy, Miss. Havisham-esque antiques, and an unusual selection of creepy-and-cool curios that makes for an exotic adventure back in time. Though there's some new tchotchkes that compliment the used-and-abused merch, it's more of a go-to spot for, say, a stuffed bear.


If you're jonesing for painless redecoration, you're in luck. Subtract 20% off all new tabletop items, books, and magazines until September 8...just mention R29! You'd be surprised how much new glasses raise the bar, home-wise.

369 Atlantic Avenue (between Hoyt and Bod streets) Brooklyn; 718-797-9733

2. Haus Interior: Started by NYC It-Interior Designer Nina Freudenberger a little over a year ago, this Nolita boutique wouldn't be out of place in Le Marais, Malibu, or Sag Harbor—it's that effortlessly eclectic. There are pick-up items for every occasion: A canoe wire basket for an inexpensive hostess gift, a Rothko color-block pillow to punch up your couch, or the perfect "Thank You" card. And while furniture isn't on the menu, combine any objét from her store with your Ikea for an Architectureal Digest-worthy pad. Oh, did we mention the $38 resin antlers?

The prices are already uber-accessible, but we're giving you a special discount—you know that's how we do! Score 20% off everything until September 8, just mention R29 in-store or enter code refinery29 online for the savings.


250 Elizabeth Street (between East Houston and Prince Streets); 212-741-0455

3.A&G Merch: If Pottery Barn was run by a Billyburg hipster, the result might be something like this. Owned by the masterminds behind The Future Perfect (definitely an honorable mention as well), A&G has got affordable, fresh design that feels urban without being gritty. Their brass-and-glass hanging lamp is on our must-have list, and we could live in the Bedford 88 sofa. If those stretch your budget, the collection of "stuff" on tap (jumbo post-its, bird vases) means you won't leave empty-handed.

Take 20% off everything in-store until Saturday, September 4. Just mention Refinery29 when you check out. See you there!

111 North 6th Street (between Berry and Wythe Streets) Brooklyn; 718-388-1779
