Showplace Antique + Design Center

Ok - I was on a date with my guy when we went to Showplace Antique + Design Center here in Manhattan. Let me just say, I was blown away. It's a huge 3 story location with a ton of goodies to decorate your home. It is literally a designer's dream-come-true. When we walked up these stairs (see below) & headed to the 3rd floor, we encountered aisles & aisles of OMHYGosh furniture & home accessories. This stuff is definitely sourced carefully for designers + collectors.

It's like Kelly Wearstler-good. Know what I mean? A word of caution though - bring some money with you - because this stuff will cost you. If you haven't been & need a friend to go with, let me know. I'd love to go again.









































Here is the hubby looking out the gorgeous large window - not sure who is sexier, the window or him.... lol

Ahh I would LOVE to visit an antique store like this. I recently visited an antique store in my local area and it literally looked like someone's messy basement. Such a disappointment.

Jen, this looks incredible! I have never been but I am definitely going to go. We are hoping to sign a lease on a new apartment this week (fingers crossed) so I feel like it's almost mandatory.

It's like a treasure hunt ...
P.S: your hubby is much more sexy than the window ;)

HA! I lieterally gasped out loud when I saw the Chesterfield sofa. This place looks dangerous for me. Like, blow-the-mortgage dangerous.
