New York City has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around our fantastic city that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

Joey Showroom represents labels like Black Halo and House of Harlow. Its founder, Joey Giuntoli, recently moved into a new pad in West Chelsea, a space that is killing us slowly with envy. He says the move inspired him to do some damage at Nest Interiors, a shop on Ninth Avenue with a fairly nondescript storefront that houses perhaps the last remaining item that Joey needs in order to call his new house a home.
Whether you're looking to buy a housewarming gift, a last-minute birthday present, or a piece to decorate your own home, Nest Interiors has a uniquely beautiful assortment of furniture ranging from coasters to Danish furniture to modern glassware, as well as ashtrays and throw pillows. You can't help but stop and appreciate their storefront while walking by. Plus, after moving into my new place on 19th and 11th Ave, I'm hooked on the contents of this store. I've had my eye on a credenza for far too long...I think I'm going to have to pop by this weekend and grab it.· Nest Interiors [Official Site]
