Want to move beyond the limits of your local Pottery Barn or Crate & Barrel? Then yes, Virginia, there are stores that still offer original stylish products at reasonable prices. In New York, they belong to a number of interior designers and suppliers who are taking their visions of domestic beauty directly to the shopping public with their own stores. These stores, scattered throughout the city, offer the designer's style without the commitment or the cost of hiring them for a project. From a signature candle to a full room of furnishings, they offer a great alternative to the almost inescapable cookie-cutter experiences that shopping has become.
