Most 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 2015's 38 best home goods shops in New York City. Some new additions to last year's list: Orchard Street's Coming Soon, which boasts silver Mylar tents and geode dioramas; Home of the Brave, a Greenpoint shop with a Made in Brooklyn bent; Joinery, South Williamsburg's go-to for Marie Kondo devotees; Furnish Green, an antique furniture gem hidden in a nondescript Midtown office building; and Bo Concept Warehouse, for its discount modern designs.
