My favorite metal is brass, so naturally, the Brass Center is a don’t-miss for knobs, door handles, and drawer pulls. I’ve even found great belt hooks there. 248 E. 58th St., nr. Second Ave.; 212-421-0090.
Be prepared to find a half-dozen things you simply can’t resist at Showplace Antiques + Design Center (40 W. 25th St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-633-6063) or High Style Deco (224 W. 18th St., nr. Seventh Ave.; 212-647-0035). On one trip to High Style, I found a set of Fornasetti plates.
My chevron-wood floors make me so happy every day, and I have LV Wood Floors to thank for every board. 24 W. 20th St., nr. Fifth Ave.; 212-627-9663.
With Belle Fleur,
I never have to worry that they’ll send something loaded with baby’s breath. 134 Fifth Ave., nr. 19th St.; 212-254-8703.
My kitchen is located in the middle of the floor plan, so I was fixated on appliances. The Electrolux line has the most gorgeous options. Gringer and Sons, 29 First Ave., nr. 2nd St.; 212-475-0600.
