Founded in 1991 by Californian husband-and-wife duo Tom and Ryoko Nadeau, this home-decor mecca features imported handmade wood furniture from India and Indonesia, for wholesale prices that won’t offend your wallet. Nadeau began as an insiders-only secret source for interior designers, but has been selling to common folks and bargain hunters for the past three years. The airy shop boasts the brand’s signature blue-and-green walls, and it’s the 17th Nadeau store in the U.S. to dish out a consistently changing stock of furnishings, whose styles range from French country to traditional American colonial. Take a seat in black-and-white bone-inlay chairs with floral designs ($363) that were featured in Elle Decor, or stash those unread copies of Tolstoy in colorful four-shelf bookcases ($246). We also adore a signature collection featuring rough-finish pieces, such as four-drawer dressers with patchwork-paint-finishes ($449).
