Haute Decor: The Haute 5 Home Decor Stores in New York City

At the Plaza Hotel Andre Leon Talley told me “If your publication is Haute Living, then tell your readers your home is your sanctuary!”  Here’s the haute picks of NYC to make it so… (*and Andre I hope you are reading because I think you will approve.)

Ligne Roset

Ligne Roset has furnishing and home decor for every room and functionality. From the linens you wake up in to plates you eat breakfast on, the table you work at, the chair you rest in to the light you turn off at night, Ligne Roset has you covered morning to night.

Ligne Roset has two locations in Manhattan : 250 Park Avenue South 212.685.1099 ; 155 Wooster Street 212.253.5629

John Derian

If you love a good decoupage, check out John Derian. Orders are handmade and add a quintessential touch of elegance, charm and grace to your home. The kind Emily Post would approve of with a hip edge. I especially love his multi-piece wall hangings (refer to picture). John Derian also carries high quality custom furniture pieces as well as Geraldine Gonzalez candle holders, Astier de Villate pottery, Moroccan Rugs and more.

John Derian is located at 6 East Second Avenue, New York, NY 212 677 3917

Michele Varian

Michele Varian is a charming home decor store with whimsical thought provoking objects to enhance your domicile, such as a Chalkboard Globe ($450), Metallic Linen Owl Pillows ($260), and Porcelain Bird Juicer ($34). Always on the forefront of what’s haute, her work is regularly featured in the Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdale window displays.

This NYC hotspot is great because it focuses on floors. What better way to make an ultimate luxury statement in your home? From Jab Lana F Wool Felt, to Eco flat woven goods, Sumo flooring (made of pre-finished engineered flooring with an emphasis on wide and long planks) and more the possibilities are perfect solutions for the city. “Our core staff has been committed to sourcing products, from trade shows in Milan to Shanghai, that perfectly fit within the fast-changing world of urban lifestyle.”
