Stackable baskets, $95, at Agent Gallery

Agent Gallery Mariano Chavez and Abi Hassen aren’t catering to the Ikea crowd. Their vintage furniture and home decor, sold out of Hassen’s home basement in Bushwick, is super sturdy and multiuse. Stackable baskets double as blanket-storage bins ($175 for three), a lithographed anatomy chart from the late 1950s makes great wall art ($95), and theater seats from the 1930s with row numbers could jazz up any living room ($425 for three).

Anthropologie in Chelsea Market The go-to place for Amy’s Bread and super fresh seafood welcomes an especially New Yorkified version of this free-spirited chain. In addition to the artsy clothes and housewares that we’ve come to expect from Anthropologie, the new outpost stocks dresses by SOR Select and jeans hand-painted by Carol Horn, plus an array of antique jewelry sourced from a Paris flea market. Even if Anthropologie is too boho for your blood, go for the eye candy: The shop features topiaries of local landmarks like the Highline and the Chrysler Building. 75 Ninth Ave between 15th and 16th Sts (212-620-3116, Mon--Sat 10am--8pm, Sun 11am--7pm.

The Conran Shop After its months-long housecleaning sale, the store has finally relocated to its new permanent home in the basement of ABC Carpet & Home’s flagship.

Crockett and Jones Metrosexuals with a serious shoe fetish (and cash to burn) will flip for this British footwear brand, finally opening its first shop stateside.

David Yurman You may associate this chichi brand with ladies who lunch, but the new 2,000-square-foot, three-level jewelry shop, located in a converted townhouse, offers a handful of choice baubles for plebs, too: signature cable bangles ($250--$1,950 each), chevron tag necklaces ($400--$1,100) and silver-ice cocktail rings ($1,950--$2,700). 712 Madison Ave at 63rd St (212-752-4255, Mon--Sat 10am--6pm, Sun noon--5pm.

Ladies will crush hard on the patchwork denim dresses ($159) and ruffled cotton scarves ($54); fellows can snag graphic zip-up jackets ($159) and printed button-down shirts ($79). 358 Fifth Ave at 34th St (212-239-0060, Mon--Sat 9am--9pm, Sun 10am--9pm.

The End Is Near Craig Rodriguez, the owner of Park Slope's eight-year-old Hand of Glory tattoo parlor, and Adam Korothy have opened a second skin-art venture right down the block. The tattoo and piercing shop doubles as an art gallery, showcasing oil paintings and tattoo-esque prints. Expect a focus on traditional American and Japanese tattoos (starting at $75), and portraits (starting at $350). Folks interested in punching holes in their orifices can choose from an extensive jewelry selection that includes wood, bone, horn and mother-of-pearl pieces by Body Vision, Buddha Jewelry, and Brain Drops. 465A 7th Ave between 16th St and Windsor Pl, Park Slope, Brooklyn (347-335-0846, Tue--Sun noon--8pm.

Isabel Marant The scene here is a street-style photographer’s wet dream. With shoppers outfitted in ensembles as exciting as the clothing for sale, passersby will be enraptured by the going-ons at the 2,240-square-foot Soho outpost, Marant’s first in the U.S. Inside, the decor reads more like a chic interpretation of an urban lake house than the Parisian boutique you might expect, and the store’s high ceilings and bleached wood are the perfect vehicle for showcasing both Marant’s ready-to-wear collection and her contemporary label, Etoile. A gazebo at the center of the store is filled with swoonworthy footwear, studded handbags and accessories (a pendant necklace costs $105; crystal hoop earrings are $270). While Marant’s signature pieces are too steep for most (a patchwork raccoon-fur jacket runs $3,200), Etoile’s wares range from $135 to $530 for super-soft heathered tees, plaid shirts, twill jackets and trenches. And we don’t know ’bout you, but we’re fully prepared to blow next month’s rent on one-shoulder silk dresses with waist-cinching sashes ($415), slouchy paper-bag-waist shorts ($280), and canvas boots with suede fringe, silver chains and four-inch conical heels ($1,160). 469 Broome St at Greene St (212-219-2284, Mon--Fri 11am--7pm, Sat 11am--8pm, Sun noon--6pm.

Lovely Bridezillas beware, there’s no room for throwing hissy fits at this low-key bridal boutique. Each engaged gal who arrives for a private fitting at the brownstone shop will be greeted with a handwritten welcome sign, then ushered upstairs to play dress-up in one of the cozy salons outfitted with fireplaces, vintage furniture and oversize mirrors. There are no princess dresses here, but funky brides will swoon over atypical styles like Elizabeth Dye’s embroidered tea-length dress ($1,200), Anne Barge’s studded gown ($3,290) and Sarah Seven’s short ruffled number ($455). Pony up for a final touch with one of’s beaded headbands and a statement necklace by Sequin. 313 W 4th St between Bank and W 12th Sts (212-924-2050, Tue--Thu 11am--7pm, Fri--Sun 11am--6pm.

Spin NYC DJ and Vidal Sassoon--trained hairstylist Eddie Williams wasn’t feeling the overpriced haircuts offered at most Manhattan salons. So he opened this Lower East Side spot, offering chic downtown chops at bargain prices. The upbeat atmosphere and hip decor is completed with disco balls, modern pop art (created by Williams’s sister) and DJ equipment (you know, so he can spin on weekends and holidays). Cuts start at $50 for men and $75 for women; Williams specializes in curly hair, and his services also include relaxers and smoothing treatments ($200--$500). Mention TONY when booking to receive 30 percent off your first haircut, or an OptiSmooth smoothing treatment through May 22. 53 Stanton St between Eldridge and Forsyth Sts (212--358--7746).
