My Favorite Things



Meg Sharpe, principal, Meg Sharpe Interiors

Flair is one of the only vintage shops where I inevitably buy pieces for myself when I should be shopping for clients. I’ve found a pair of thirties bronze cobra lamps from Paris and a beautiful, polished-nickel, open-slatted console table. 88 Grand St., nr. Greene St.; 212-274-1750.

The collections of drawings and engravings at Bonhams make it one of the more unexpected auction houses I’ve stumbled upon. 580 Madison Ave., nr. 56th St.; 212-644-9001.

The inventory at Sacco Carpet includes hand-knotted wool rugs, the finest silk carpets, kilims, and sisals. The artisans’ skills really come through in the highly detailed work. 520 Broadway., nr. Spring St., sixth fl.; 212-226-4344.

ABC Stone is a terrific resource for everything from dramatic marble to travertine to veined onyx. Looking at the stone slabs here is like going to a museum. 234 Banker St., at Meserole Ave., Greenpoint; 718-389-8360.

Aside from its iconic Lumiere chandelier, Jean de Merry produces the most beautiful mirrors I have ever seen. They truly make a statement. 979 Third Ave., nr. 58th St., No. 818; 212-715-0646 (to the trade only).

Exquisite Surfaces stocks beautiful aged wood from around the world. The antique planks are magical, but everything the shop produces in-house is noteworthy. 150 E. 58th St., nr. Third Ave., ninth fl.; 212-355-7990.

Antony Todd offers a refined assortment of pieces from around the world that blend seamlessly into any space. When I purchase something from him, I know I won’t find anything similar in anyone else’s collection. 44 E. 11th St., nr. University Pl.; 212-529-3252.
