Moroccan painter Hanan Zdeg’s carefully curated stock of international imports offers something for every budget. Zdeg scouts markets in North Africa, Asia and the Middle East to handpick beautiful, well-made pieces to display in her Greenwich Village shop. The result is an eclectic, but eye-catching, assortment of handcrafted housewares ($35–$150), jewelry ($25–$2,000), furniture ($350–$6,000) and antiques ($35–$3,000) that make shoppers feel as if they are browsing an upscale souk. Wooden doors with detailed carvings at the rear of the store coupled with the scent of aromatic oils adds to the space’s bohemian ambience. Visitors will be taken by L’Aristote handmade soaps infused with rose and lavender ($5–$12), copper-and-glass decorative bottles ($25–$45), silk napkin rings (eight for $65) and silver curtain tassels ($55–$125). We’re also eager to frame our windows with handwoven silk curtains ($125–$450) and stock our linen closets with handmade cotton Turkish towels ($70).
