ABC Carpet and Home
FLATIRON DISTRICT. Whether you’re searching for an 18th-century garden bench or a jumbo bar of sandalwood-scented soap, ABC Carpet and Home can help. They boast a large inventory and stock enough chenille throws, Venetian chandeliers and art glass lamps for every decorating style. Gardening accessories, antique hatpins, vintage clocks and housewares are also popular. Crystal, silver, needlepoint pillows, fabric by the yard, and, of course, carpets also abound. In fact, the gorgeous beaded lamp shades ($90-$500) would be worth the trip alone. As soon as Christmas nears, ABC becomes a tree ornament paradise. If you’re a chestnuts roasting on an open fire, mulled cider drinking, Christmas carol sort of person who individually unwraps and re-wraps tree ornaments in sheets of tissue paper every year, you won’t want to miss it!
