While working as an interior decorator, New York School of Interior Design alum Susie Kurkowski found herself frustrated by the lack of whimsical housewares on the market. She opened this retail shop and showroom, specializing in unique furniture ($200–$5,000), lighting ($200–$2,000), artwork ($350–$2,000), rugs ($150–$3,500) and quirky home accessories ($12–$200), many from NYC designers. We love Bahia de Montarlot glass-topped hashtag-shaped tables ($1,800), street artist George “Sen One” Morillo graffiti chairs ($1,800) and Go Home reclaimed-wood bookshelves ($1,400) that unfold to become dining tables. Smaller home upgrades include ReWined champagne-scented candles ($28), Darzzi neon-accent geometric throws ($84) and Girls Can Tell Brooklyn Bridge–adorned dish towels ($14).
