Just north of Union Square, ABC’s Manhattan flagship spreads across several floors of a warehouse-like corner building. It’s long championed craftsmanship and sustainability, with covetable home goods—vintage textiles, lighting, furniture—sourced globally, from India to Denmark. Pop-ups within the store sometimes showcase avant-garde designs. Artisanal jewelry, clothes, decorative objects and other items more likely to fit in a suitcase can be found on the ground floor. Nearby, you can take your pick among three acclaimed restaurants launched in partnership with Chef Jean-Georges: ABC Kitchen, ABC Cocina, and ABCV.

This six-story department store located in the Flatiron district of Manhattan surprises: It’s pure luxury disguised by a generic name and lives up to the promise of hidden treasure. No matter whether you count on pulling out the plastic or not, wandering through the various open boutiques feels a bit like a high-end indoor flea market where all the sellers happen to have impeccable taste, where imported delights suspend from high ceilings, and unique jewelry creations decorate glass cabinets. It’s a bohemian version of Vogue magazine come to life.

Don’t let the name fool you: This enormous and extraordinary housewares shop is more like a fantastical cabinet of curiosities for global-minded aesthetes. Even if you’re not buying, it’s great fun to browse among heaps of pillows and textiles from Asia, delicately crafted jewelry from Turkey, milled soaps and candles from France and zillion-thread-count linens from Italy.
