Phew, returning home from traveling is always exhausting. I had a great time in NYC, but trying to re-enter my schedule has been almost as challenging as getting a flight home! I had a crazy situation at the airport which I will tell you about in a separate post. It involved being frisked in security and begging a Delta airline captain (in sign languages through a window) to let me on the plane after he had pulled away from the gate. Good times!
While most of my trip involved touring sites with my 16 year old daughter’s choir (they had been invited to NYC to sing in Carnegie Hall!), I did sneak away in order to visit ABC Carpet & Home. I knew you’d all enjoy seeing that part of my trip! It was an amazing place.
For those of you who don’t know, ABC Home is an enormous design retailer in Manhattan. They have been developing and featuring products that are not only beautiful to look at, but healthy for us and the environment. They’ve been featured in many magazines so you may have read about them. I was blown away by the array of furnishings and products as well as the eye-popping display of goods on every floor. From chandeliers to beds, to toys, sofas, linens and bath products, they had a bit of everything.
I’m not sure if taking photos was a taboo or not, but I took the risk and snapped away on your behalf! I knew you’d love to see some of the goods! I didn’t take photos of everything, but some things I just couldn’t resist.
I was mesmerized by all the light fixtures.
Each one was so unique and beautiful. And so much sparkle!
I loved the variety of styles shown on the floor. There were tons of gorgeous mosaic pieces that were really stunning.
Even the architecture of the building was interesting to look at.
I really enjoyed the children’s section. I was taking pictures like mad and no one stopped me. I was like a kid in a candy shop. Thanks ABC Home for letting me feast on all this loveliness and share it here!!!
Notice the paper backed shelves. I need to add this photo (above) to our Paper Post…
Lots of mosaic goodness.
There were lots of driftwood pieces. I felt like I was on the Oregon Coast. They ask a fortune for pieces like this! Actually, I think it is illegal to take driftwood from the Oregon Coast so I don’t know where they found all this wood.
Those are the photos I managed to take. I barely scraped the surface of all the glorious floors, so do stop in if you ever get the chance! You won’t be disappointed!
