While it may seem like nothing in this inspiring home behemoth falls into the “budget” designation, the basement of the rug depot (west side of the street) offers a trove of carpet remnants, like a beautiful purple-inflected beige number (12x14 feet) for about $300, which can be cut to any size and bound—a customer recently had them re-create the shape of a bear. You can get natural fibers (jute, sisal) and broadlooms along with rug samples and overstock (most of which are reduced by 50 to 75 percent). Upstairs, you'll find insanely gorgeous wares at equally insane prices: Madeline Weinrib Atelier graphic centerpieces, huge flokatis and a slew of hand-tied rugs from far-flung corners of the world.
