Baxter & Liebchen (Closed)
50 Laight St., Tribeca
You will definitely find some budget-busting pieces here that are aggressively pedigreed, but Baxter & Liebchen does a great job of sourcing beautiful anonymous pieces that are a bit more affordable, too. They're also conscious of the fact that they're in New York, meaning you'll find plenty that works well in small spaces—and a lot of storage pieces, like bookshelves and credenzas. They deliver, too.
324 Canal St., Tribeca
At this design co-operative, designers like Flat Vernacular, Fort Standard, and Meg Callahan co-exist in beautiful vignettes scattered throughout the space. It’s founder Jean Lin who has a special knack for the whole mix, giving high-design furniture, textiles, and accessories a home-like context.
13 White St., Tribeca
Double Knot boasts a collection of tribal rugs, antique carpets, kilims, and other textiles from a diverse array of regions: Turkey, Iran, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Morocco. If in town, you can check out their gallery in Tribeca, which is open to the public.
391 Greenwich St., Tribeca
Every season, Edon Manor picks the most desirable shapes from some of the strongest accessory brands: Givenchy, Alaïa, Isabel Marant, and more. It’s almost hard to focus on the shoes, though, since the store—inspired by an English library—is stunning on its own.
38 N. Moore St., Tribeca
Luxury furniture brand, Espasso, opened in 2002. With outposts on both coasts, and a London location, Espasso's showrooms are a mecca of modern and contemporary Brazilian furniture.
20 Harrison St., Tribeca
Designer Jenni Kayne has finally made things permanent in Manhattan, bringing her sunny Southern California optimism along with her for the brand's first New York City boutique. Much of Kayne's collection—luxe cashmere, textured mules and d'orsay flats, oversized throws, and wear-with-everything ankle boots look right at home in the store's light filled space (complete with bleached floors and white brick walls) in Tribeca. The store will function slightly differently than Kayne's other retail outposts: Instead of a standard brick-and-mortar, it will act more as a showroom for customers to get acquainted with the brand and try things on. So while the store will keep limited stock on hand, many styles and sizes will be available to test-drive and customers can place an online order with expedited shipping. Good news: Fans of JK will be happy to know they're looking to bring their women's speaker series and DIY workshops to the space, too.
465 Greenwich St., Tribeca
Slick and all-white, the loft-y space is dotted with wooden racks, filled with all the greatest hits from the popular website, including cutting-edge tailoring from Yohji Yamamoto, Grecian dresses from Zero + Maria Cornejo, and feminine skirts and dresses from Simone Rocha.
Matt Bernson (Closed)
20 Harrison St., Tribeca
You can't really go wrong when you turn out well-designed, well-made, and well-priced shoes, as evidenced by Matt Bernson's booming downtown NYC business. We're big fans here at goop—both of the subtly forward-but-still-classic shapes and the really friendly price tags (they ring in at under $250). It doesn't hurt that Matt himself is a Tribeca dad, and a really nice guy who can often be found at his warm and welcoming flagship boutique.
27 Vestry St., Tribeca
When Schoolhouse Electric first launched, it focused solely on reproductions of industrial and, well, school-house lighting fixtures. These days, they're a great resource for all sorts of subtly old-timey home goods, whether it's plaid throw blankets, notebooks from Japan, or drawer and cabinet pulls.
177 Franklin St., Tribeca
Based in Detroit, Shinola produces watches (the owners also founded Fossil), bicycles, leather goods, stationery—all boasting American craftmanship and manufacturing. We love the story and the beautifully simple, functional, and heritage-inspired designs.
