The mammoth housewares chain has been importing eclectic goods from around the world since the company was founded in 1962. Manhattan’s second location (the other is in the Flatiron District) is also the largest one with three floors chock-full of ethnic-inspired and budget-friendly wares. On the main level, you’ll be greeted with rows of candy-colored dishware, including printed dinner plates ($8) and mosaic-tiled serving platters ($45), as well as displays featuring bronze champagne flutes ($8). The basement level holds bedroom necessities such as gold-and-white painted chests ($500) and ombré shag area carpets ($300). The upper level reveals a plethora of decorative pillows covered with metallic beads ($30) and done up in chevron prints ($30), plus oversize foil vases ($45) and elephant-shaped candleholders ($10).
