  • For nesters, the design of Calliope makes it feel like you've stepped into someone's living room




  • Mecox Gardens started out as a holiday pop-up for its home-base store in Southampton




Where to turn when you want to beautify your apartment — or get rid of clutter and pests




Calliope

349 West 12th St.

646-517-2948

Calliope is the brainchild of husband and wife duo Caroline (designer of minimal jewelry line BRVTVS) and Michael (owner of design studio Sub Rosa) Ventura. The store, by design, feels like you've stepped into someone's living room. Objects are carefully curated and must be something the owners personally love in order to be stocked. Calliope also offers cool field trips — Reportage Photography, Vinyl Hunting & Mixing. Not jealous yet? The Venturas own the whole building. Upstairs you'll find studios for both businesses and living quarters. There's also a gallery space next door.




Mecox Gardens

962 Lexington Ave.

212-249-5301

Mecox started as a holiday pop-up for its home-base store out in Southampton. But the location and high-end home goods were such a perfect match that Mecox set up shop permanently in 1998. The store has everything you need to make your home super stylish and cozy — mirrored boxes, fringe leather chairs, acrylic and faux-horn side tables. From one-of-a-kind antiques to reproduction pieces, you'll find furniture, art, lighting, mirrors, knick-knacks, and more. They change out their offerings every Wednesday so you always have a reason to go back, not that you'd need one.




Jonathan Adler

304 Columbus Ave.

Jonathan Adler may technically be from New Jersey but he's a New Yorker through and through. He launched his business with a ceramics line via Barneys in 1993 and has since gone on to corner the market on modern American and mid-century design. His stuff is just plain fun. Furniture, pottery, pillows, art, rugs, lighting, and much more. Items may look merely posh and quirky but Adler takes craftsmanship very seriously. As his site states: “If your heirs won't fight over it, we won't make it.”
