Best Home Décor

    At their clothing boutique around the corner, Wolves Within, husband-and- wife owners Max and Bethany Vogel had customers asking them for three years whether the shop’s carefully scouted décor was for sale. Now it finally is. Their assortment calls to mind Anthropologie’s home floor (with better prices): speckled cowhide rugs sourced straight from a Brazilian farmer ($225), indigo-dyed throw rugs that double as blankets ($138), hand-glazed ceramic mugs and planters by Williamsburg-based brand Small Spells (from $35). Among the items you never knew you needed: a folding ashwood stool topped with English bridle leather ($165), which may have been intended for camping but sure fits great in a New York apartment.
