Head downstairs through the men's section of the Barneys Warehouse Sale and into the Chelsea Passage and voila! You've found the oft forgotten home accessories section. In a mishmash of random home and tabletop items, shoppers can source some real finds.
Create your own color palette with a selection of plastic casual plates and bowls in punchy colors ($4-6), then mix in some handblown wine glasses and tumblers by Bribe ($8-$9 each). There are also adorable pink tea kettles for $22 each and neon plastic utensil sets for $15 per set. Turn the corner to happen upon a handful of Hermès fine china on the shelves (how about a creamer for $180?). There are also table linens, cashmere throws (a bit steep at $695), patterned throw pillows and $19 tie-dyed beach blankets. You can also decorate and pretend to be well-rounded with a random selection of coffee table books—from Alabama Stitch to Apt. 301 by Will Anderson. Also of note—for forward-thinking decorators, look for funky seasonal holiday items. There are a few green vine Christmas trees and neon orange menorah shaped wall hangings—something for everyone. Happy shopping!—Fawnia Soo Hoo
