Up the block from ABC is this 4,500 square-foot warehouse of chic Indonesian furniture and accessories. Owner Philip Tuan imports all of his items directly from the Asian manufacturers and with little overhead (no advertising, small staff) is able to keep mark-ups to a minimum. The result is a beautiful selection of authentic wood pieces that you would find at popular home furnishing chains, but for a fraction of the price. A 5x3-foot mahogany bookcase is $200 (compared to $699 for a similar item at Pottery Barn), leather roll back chairs are $395 (they're $895 at Crate & Barrel), and a mission-style bench is $175 (it's $499 at Restoration Hardware). Delivery won't break the bank either: $45 for nearby deliveries, add $5 for every additional zip code beyond.
