New Yorkers live in teeny tiny apartments with the majority of their possessions on display at all times, which makes decorating decisions — from which dish towels to hang from the stove handle to how many shelves can be squeezed into an alcove — all the more important. Fortunately, there's no shortage of NYC stores to help you spruce up your place, whether you're looking to organize, inject some personality, or do a complete décor overhaul.
Here, we've mapped out 2016's 38 best home goods shops in New York City. Some new additions to last year's list: Flying Tiger, the quirky Danish store where nothing's over $20; One Kings Lane's shoppable showroom in Tribeca; Cabin Modern, the Cobble Hill shop that beautifully blends modern and vintage; Nadeau, an affordable alternative to chain stores; and Big Reuse Brooklyn, for those looking for a DIY project.
We've also updated some mainstays here, including Steven Alan Home's move to Brooklyn, Muji's Fifth Avenue flagship, Collyer's Mansion's Cobble Hill consolidation, and Canvas's impending move to Soho.
Did we miss one of your favorites? We'll update the map again next year, so let us know your thoughts in the comments section. And if you want some inspiration, check out some of our favorite interiors of all time on our Pinterest board.
