Belle - - Chic Nomad -

ERIE BASIN Lo­cated in Brook­lyn’s Red Hook, where you may not ex­pect to find a beau­ti­ful cu­ra­tion of an­tique and fine jew­ellery. Owner Rus­sell Whit­more has an eye for re­mark­able pieces and cu­ri­ous 18th–20th cen­tury fur­ni­ture. He also has his own line of jew­ellery, EB, which is made in New York.

BEL­LOCQ A tea ate­lier un­like any other. Think wabi-sabi trav­els to Paris, with other ex­otic stops on the way back to Green­point, Brook­lyn. Try beau­ti­ful sin­gle-leaf, or­ganic and herbal teas in a gor­geous set­ting with cov­etable pack­ag­ing – it’s hard to go past tea named Gypsy Car­a­van, The Queen’s Guard or White Wolf. bel­

PAULA RUBEN­STEIN A one-stop prop shop that was my go-to in my years work­ing as a stylist in NYC. Paula is a sea­soned buyer and fos­sicker with a so­phis­ti­cated eye. The store is an ex­ten­sion of her, with all man­ner of things to choose from: Amer­i­can-in­dian rugs, man­nequins, leather balls, blocks and bolts, to name but a few. Ex­pect the un­ex­pected. paularuben­

BDDW For New York and its lim­ited space, I love the grand scale of this place. Big fur­ni­ture and a choice of raw pieces of wood to make into your own be­spoke ta­ble are what you’ll find. The styling is spec­tac­u­lar, with crazy things in crazy cor­ners. All the hard­wood pieces are de­signed and cre­ated by founder Tyler Hays.

MANTIQUES MOD­ERN For those who’ve seen A Sin­gle Man di­rected by Tom Ford, I think he may have sourced the fur­ni­ture and props here. Amer­i­can in na­ture, these are de­signer pieces from dif­fer­ent 20th-cen­tury eras that sit proudly in ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed spa­ces but are not to be taken too se­ri­ously. man­tiques­mod­
