Union Square Shops
3 E. 17th St., Union Square
Over the past few years, this lingerie boutique has grown and opened up several shops all over the city. It turns out there was a real hole in the marketplace when it came to lingerie: A place where you can find pretty lingerie that you don’t feel silly wearing everyday, which means a tasteful mix of brands like Bordelle, Stella McCartney, Cosabella, and Princesse Tam-Tam, in both basic nudes and bright colors. There’s also a location in Soho and the Upper East Side.
860 Broadway, 4th Floor, Union Square
Tai Ping’s luxurious carpets, which are handmade in China, can be found in many of the world’ best hotels—but they also make them for homes in custom sizes. Their gorgeous, Asian-inflected showroom space on Union Square is to the trade, so make an appointment and go with an interior designer. Their recent collaboration with Chen Chen & Kai Williams is particularly cool.
