My Favorite Things



Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, principals, Roman and Williams

BDDW is one of the top contemporary furniture stores devoted to amazing craftsmanship and great design. Its pieces, created in a variety of woods, are made to last. 5 Crosby St., nr. Howard St.; 212-625-1230.

Ted Muehling is a master artist, and we love everything he does—from jewelry to candlesticks to glassware. The basis of everything he makes stems from nature, which is similar to what we do. 52 White St., nr. Church St.; 212-431-3825.

New York Central Art Supply is one of Stephen’s favorites for its beautiful notebooks, drawing paper, and difficult-to-find art supplies. Robin particularly loves it for the exquisite Japanese wrapping papers. 62 Third Ave., nr. 11th St.; 212-477-0400.

Hyman Hendler & Sons is a great old-school store in the garment district where we consistently find beautiful high-end ribbon. We have used it for everything from gifts to trim for drapery. 21 W. 38th St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-840-8393.

Tucked a few steps beneath the streets of Noho, Dashwood Books is filled with an exceptional collection of obscure photography books. It’s an enduring staple in the ever-changing neighborhood. 33 Bond St., nr. Lafayette St.; 212-387-8520.

Katsuya Nishimori at Florisity is one of the most inspiring, cross-cultural florists we have ever worked with. We use him exclusively for arrangements for our office and events. He has an eye and instinct for choosing forgotten and overlooked flowers and plants. 1 W. 19th St., at Fifth Ave.; 212-366-0891.

Wyeth is one of the best curated furniture stores in New York City. It has an exceptional and eclectic mix of objects from the industrial to the refined. 315 Spring St., at Greenwich St.; 212-243-3661.
