Profile

Although Mackenzie-Childs' home goods are far more Wonderland than Fifth Avenue, the company is New York through and through—all of its signature pieces are made upstate in Aurora, where 300 artisans create the hand-painted Bombay chests, wicker-seat chairs, and fish-bowl sinks on display in the store's two-story space. The black-and-white checkered ground floor's perimeter showcases much of the hand-crafted tableware, but the real fun happens upstairs, with a purposefully imperfect hand-painted wooden table, laid with goods in a harmonious mix of stripes, polka dots, checks, flowers, and cream and pink tassels. Hanging lamps fall in deep clusters next to a $22,000 bed frame, topped with a faux nest for three huge (fake) ostrich eggs; bedside lamps with porcelain white rabbit bases only add to the delightful madness. Despite the playful and intoxicatingly childish goods, the adults-only attention to craft, and the hefty price tags, keep the merchandise dreamy.

Extra

Don't have $3,000 to shell out for a lamp? Downstairs, peruse the unique napkin holders, like those resembling miniature wooden beach chairs (starting at $5 a piece), and feel the oh-so soft baby capes for sale (the hoods pull up to reveal animal heads).
