Started in 1964 as a marriage of the Jensen family’s long-running sail-making business and the Lewis’s canvas-awning business, this store—originally for all-canvas furniture—quickly grew to become one of New York’s most trusted purveyors of contemporary and modern furniture. Though the Chelsea gallery is sprawling in size, the painted walls, friendly staff and inviting, mostly European furniture might just make you feel like you're on a Nancy Meyers film set.
Whether you’ve moved to one of the affordable apartments in NYC in a brand new neighborhood or you’re feeling the need to redecorate after spiffing up with cleaning services, don’t rely on big-box department stores. Instead, just head to these furniture stores. NYC has top spots for finding your perfect couch, bed, chifferobe or what-have-you, and for further sprucing, make sure to stop by the city’s best home decor stores.
