Midtown East Shops
215 E. 58th St., Midtown East
Waterworks is an indispensable design resource for anything related to kitchens and bathrooms, with an unimaginably long list of offerings from fixtures to tile to countertops and beyond. They particularly excel with made-to-order designs and collaborations with interior design stars (like goop friends Roman & Williams). There's a kitchen showroom around the corner on 3rd Avenue, and a full showroom downtown in Flatiron, too.
445 Park Ave., Midtown East
T. Anthony is somewhat of a Park Avenue institution, selling simple, luxurious luggage and leather goods. They've been making custom bags—in iconic red, black, and purple—for the well-traveled since the '40s, including Jackie O., Marilyn Monroe, and John Lennon. We love the basic duffles and rollers.
239 E. 58th St., Midtown East
Urban Archaeology started out as a source for salvaged fixtures and materials. Today, this showroom boasts its own line of products, from furniture, to lighting, bathroom, hardware and fixtures galore, all with an eye toward classic design. The workshop is in Long Island City, and it's a great option if you want custom pieces for the home.
