LEX­ING­TON’S FOUNDER AND CEO HAS A PAS­SION FOR DE­SIGN.

Abc­car­pet&home This place has an in­cred­i­ble range of all things in­te­rior. The premises alone are fan­tas­tic. The ground floor is some­thing of a mar­ket­place with lots of lit­tle things to browse through. It’s worth al­lo­cat­ing some time for your visit as you’ll easily spend a whole day here. ABC also has a res­tau­rant. 888 Broad­way www.ab­chome.com

West elm A favourite among young in­te­rior de­sign jour­nal­ists, West Elm is found across USA. It fol­lows a mod­ern style, both when it comes to fur­ni­ture, bed linen and in­te­rior de­sign gad­gets. West Elm is clas­si­cally clean with a mod­ern twist. 112 W 18th Street www.west­elm.com

Aero The man be­hind the store, To­mas O’brien, is one of Amer­ica’s most fa­mous in­te­rior de­sign- Dwell Stu­dio. ers and de­signs for his own brands as well as oth­ers. His store is a blend of his own de­signs, re­vamped vintage fur­ni­ture and smaller dec­o­ra­tive ob­jects. This in­spi­ra­tional place is spread across two floors and con­ve­niently lo­cated in Soho. 419 Broome Street www.aeros­tu­dios.com

pot­tery Barn Rep­re­sent­ing a softer, typ­i­cal Amer­i­can style, Pot­tery Barn has branches across the coun­try. You’ll find any­thing from so­fas to Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, all good qual­ity at rea­son­able pri- ces. It’s bright and fresh and the ta­ble tops and adorn­ments are very in­spi­ra­tional. It’s one of my favourites and in line with my per­sonal taste. 117 E 59th Street www.pot­tery­barn.com

Dwell stu­dio A mixed, mod­ern Amer­i­can con­cept. With a wide range of fur­ni­ture and dec­o­ra­tive items, it can be slightly over­whelm­ing at first, but it’s un­likely you leave empty handed. The fur­ni­ture is slightly aus­tere com­pared to the bold ac­ces­sories. 77 Wooster Street, www.dwell­stu­dio.com restora­tion HARD­WARE Another store ad­her­ing to the Amer­i­can de­sign con­cept with branches across the US. This one, how­ever, is a lit­tle bit darker and more full-on than the oth­ers. Its at­ten­tion to colour co­or­di­na­tion won me over – it’s not un­usual for tow­els and wall colours to match. But the rea­son it’s one of my per­sonal favourites is be­cause it’s where I can find Amer­i­can style iron­work and hooks that of­ten proves dif­fi­cult to find at home. 925 Broad­way www.restora­tionhard­ware.com
