Open for Business: Steven Alan Home Shop, 158 Franklin Street, New York, NY. (646) 402-9661
Atmosphere: Comfortable and urban, Steven Alan Home Shop in TriBeCa looks like any New Yorker’s dream apartment – from small green plants in handmade ceramic pots hanging in white-washed windows to charmingly mismatched, locally woven towels. It’s eclectic, yet somehow it all goes. (Isn’t that always the goal?)
Pièce de résistance: J Pickens for Steven Alan — a collection of sofas available in customized fabrics from New York-based furniture designer Jason Pickens. We’re sold.
