After 15 years of doing business on Bleecker Street, LEO Design has relocated to a mom-and-pop-filled stretch of the West Village just a few blocks away. This seems like an apt move for the cozy shop, which has garnered a loyal clientele for its handsome vintage gifts that owner Kino Jung collects during his buying trips to England, Italy and France. Buttery-yellow walls and a reinstated tin ceiling contrast the dark wood and metal antiques, which date back to the 1900s. Jung always makes sure to offer a nice selection of bejeweled cufflinks ($75–$175) and leather picture frames ($75–$175). Also look for home-furnishing treasures, such as a desk organizer from the Edwardian era ($195–$295) and brass animal bookends from the ’20s ($145–$350).
