Even though all the goods contained within are luxurious to the max, ABC Carpet & Home's six-floor Manhattan flagship retains a certain warehouse aesthetic: worn hardwood floors creak under your feet, glittering chandeliers and gigantic antique carpets adord the high ceilings, and furniture vignettes—often more piles than displays—stand everywhere. It's like an estate sale for your packrat dowager aunt, albeit with impeccable taste. The satelite location across Broadway from the flagship store houses three floors of carpets and rugs of every size, style and description, including the basement level where rugs, broadloom and remnants are sold at substantially lower prices.
At ABC's outlet, mere mortals can afford the luxe goods sold at its flagship —glamorous furniture, mesmerizing oriental carpets, sumptuous linens. Prices are still high, mind you, but expect a discount off the original sticker shock.—Tisa CoenRegistry
