High-End Furniture

Luteca

Dobbs Ferry; www.luteca.com

This furniture store brings customers high-end, beautifully handcrafted pieces with Mexican and Latin American influences. Featuring clean lines and luxurious materials, Luteca’s furniture is also stylish and functional — something not all brands can claim. Customers will find pieces ranging from stools and tables to credenzas, daybeds, and more.

 

Lighting Store

Arrow Lighting

Larchmont; www.arrowlighting.com

The affable and knowledgeable Craig Barre has been at the helm of Larchmont’s superb Arrow Lighting for 40 years. The beautifully curated store (including a brand-new Sonneman showroom) is where residents, architects, and designers go to find superior lighting to make any home glow with modern or classic style. Arrow also does expert restorations, rewiring, and repairs.

 

Handcrafted Furniture

Old New House

Katonah; www.oldnewhouse.com

Best known for their extensive collection of vintage items, owners Melissa and Dave Dilmaghani also create unique trademarked furniture pieces, such as Mod Tables offered in limited-edition wood versions and other conversation pieces handmade-to-order in their workshop.

The team has also started producing mini-rug-fragment footstools, rug-fragment ottomans and coffee tables, plus reclaimed slab tables, including end tables, coffee tables, and entryway tables.

 

New Home Store

Fofie & Mia’s

Larchmont; www.fofiemia.com

Catering expertly to the design world’s craze for a mix of rustic, modern, customized, and traditional is Fofie & Mia’s. From sisters Sophia Karipides (Fofie) and Maria Katsaros (Mia), the shop carries custom and ready-made furnishings, accessories, coffee-table books, and everything in-between. Design services are also offered.

 

Housewarming Gifts

Rosehip & Linnéa

Scarsdale; www.rosehipandlinnea.com

You feel like you’ve entered another world, walking into Rosehip & Linnéa. Maybe it’s a stylish living area or a high-end lounge, but what you may not realize at first glance is that everything you feast your eyes on is available to purchase. The shop is a carefully curated and beautifully styled space, with unique gifts at every turn. There’s gorgeous glassware and jars, exotic bookends, vases, candles, and more, filling all of your senses.

 

Store for Hostess Gifts

Consider the Cook

Bedford; www.considerthecook.com

The next time you receive an invitation to a party, make sure you stop by Consider the Cook to pick up a hostess gift. They stock classic platters, bowls, and serving-ware, alongside quirky dish towels, fun aprons, and cocktail napkins. Customers can pick up something small or large, but they are sure to find something for every hostess who loves to entertain.

Floral Arrangements

Barbra Scott Flowers

Mamaroneck; www.barbrascott.com

What a pity when fresh-cut flowers begin to wither after only a few short days. Barbra Scott Flowers preserves floral arrangements — without changing the natural color or shape of the petals — by immersing them in a nontoxic, drying compound, so clients can appreciate their favorite bouquets for months on end.

Under-the-Radar Home Store

Harmony Designs Furniture & Interiors

Mount Vernon; www.harmonydesignsfurniture.com

Interior designer Robin Harmon-Myers’ store and studio is a beacon of home accessories, furniture, kitchen items, gifts, and all-natural self-care products that embody her philosophy of conscious living and blooming where you’re planted. (You might just want to move in.)
A lower-level gallery and event space houses local art, plus a
pool table and jukebox.

 

Stationery and Wrapping Details

The King’s Scribe

Chappaqua; www.kingsscribe.com

Owner Alissa Sampogna opened her one-stop shop for all things stationery in 2011, after she found success with an Etsy shop selling her own invitation and stationery designs. Sampogna prides herself on her wall of curated greeting cards — nothing sappy or traditional here — as well as her party supplies, digital and hand calligraphy, holiday cards, gift wrap, and small gifts.

 

Handcrafted Home Accents

Brooks Custom

Mount Kisco; www.brookscustom.com

On the mental Rolodex of leading designers and savvy homeowners, Brooks is a standout for exquisite, custom-designed home accents, all handcrafted on-site. If you can dream it up, they can make it come true, including striking countertops and bar tops, range hoods, and furniture made with metals, glass, concrete, and wood.

 

Tile-and-Slab Showroom

Walker Zanger

Port Chester; www.walkerzanger.com

The sexy selection of tile and stone here, from premier sources like European quarries, Italian mosaic workshops, and Moroccan ceramic studios, will actually leave you excited about living through the mess of your kitchen, bath, or other big renovation project — never mind daydreaming about enjoying it
when finished.

 

Orchid Selection

White Plains Orchids

White Plains; www.whiteplainsorchids.com

Orchids may seem like hothouse flowers, but they’re relatable at this tranquil greenhouse, complete with wind chimes, burbling fountain, and an eclectic array of pots. Let the staff, who have decades of experience importing and growing orchids, deal with the high-maintenance bit and advise on gifting and care. The changing selection, including some rare species, is hardy enough to thrive without pro tricks.

 

Socially Conscious Seed Company

Row 7 Seeds

Tarrytown; www.row7seeds.com

Raw snacking beets, heat-free habañero peppers, buttery sans-butter potatoes, and other experimental, bred-for-flavor varietals make up the certified organic, non-GMO catalog at Row 7 Seeds. Cofounded by Blue Hill’s Dan Barber, the company supports the idea that nutritious, better-tasting food is just the first step in an American agricultural revolution.
