After spending a decade raising their children and otherwise feathering their own nests, Aly Drew, Bets Miller, and Wendy Williams decided to combine their professional backgrounds to launch this 2,100 square-foot-showroom. Featuring an original metallic bronze tin ceiling, dark hardwood floors, white marble countertops, and a striking white twig branchelier light fixture, this shop offers an appealing selection of vintage and classic modern styles. ‘We sell what we love,’ says Miller, ‘and we are able to offer it to our customers without the traditional wait for specialty ordered items.’ In other words, unlike other décor showrooms—if you see something you can’t live without here, you can take it home with you that same day or have it delivered very soon after. Offerings including elegant furniture and lighting from Oly Studios; hip, colorful, and fun accents by Jonathan Adler; and such store exclusives as custom monogrammed pillows, lucite and fabric benches, and even original Juju Cameroon headdresses for display as wall art.

Best Home Shop (2012)
We’re just mad about this Mad Men-esque new home shop for its focus on what co-owner Aly Drew of Harrison calls “classic contemporary” style—blending old with new pieces that are modern in feel but not hyper-trendy. Whatever it’s called, we’re loving the selection of unique furnishings, lighting, and accessories. And how cool is this for the waiting-impaired? Unlike at other décor shops, if you see something you can’t live without, you can take it home with you that same day or have it delivered very soon after. Offerings include elegant furniture and lighting from Oly Studios ($200-$3,500); colorful accents by Jonathan Adler ($38-$390); and such store exclusives as custom-monogrammed pillows, Lucite and fabric benches, and even original Cameroonian Juju headdresses for display as wall art.
