Pre-Registry Reconnaissance


8. Take the F train (at 14th Street and Sixth Avenue) to West 4th Street, then the C to Spring Street, and go to Global Table to find décor from all over the world. The antler candlesticks in aluminum appeal to high-design taste on a mass-market budget ($50), as do the multicolor Dutch etched-glass tumblers ($70 for six). 107 Sullivan St., nr. Spring St.

9. At Clio, you’ll get more arty glass and ceramics, and you won’t find their rehabilitated dinnerware anywhere else (from $65). 92 Thompson St., nr. Spring St.

10. The hunt’s not complete until you’ve reached Moss. Though a chandelier can go for $24,000 here, you’ll also find conversation pieces that won’t make your guests shudder. The Tord Boontje charger plates are only $70, and the blown Murano glass night bottle is $195. 150 Greene St., nr. Houston St.

11. Go to the Jonathan Adler store, where you can customize a rug for $25 a square foot. The Claridge table-lamp collection, with its crystal base and black dupioni silk shade, is not as cheeky as his other stuff (from $350). 47 Greene St., at Broome St.

12. Stop by Sur La Table to investigate specialty kitchen items like the Staub paella pan ($109.95), Titanium wok ($21.95), and Le Creuset fondue pot ($100). They also have cookbooks—from Alain Ducasse on how to make dessert ($195) to Martha Stewart’s comprehensive housekeeping book ($45). 75 Spring St., at Crosby St.

13. And for the last hurrah, head to John Derian Company, where the registry is old-school—a notebook behind the counter. Select a one-of-a-kind découpage plate created by Derian himself ($66 to $950); his woodcock set is a witty take on an Audubon classic. They’ll look perfect in your new home. 6 E. 2nd St., nr. Bowery.
