Last summer I made my first round of visits to NYC decor spots and was blown away by the selection, styling and glam factor – it is New York after all! This time around I decided to focus more on soho and the meatpacking district than on midtown’s more uppercrust stores like Trelliage and Mecox Gardens. So without further adieu here is one of many posts to come on the amazing shelter stores I visited, starting with Grove.
Located at 617 Hudson Street in the meatpacking area, nearly every single thing in Grove could easily find a place in my dream home.
Graphic toss cushions embellished with bright hits of grosgrain are immediate eye candy but it only gets better inside when you catch sight of the amazing displays.
A mix of eclectic furnishings from manufactures such as bungalow 5 and two’s company mingle with custom cushions and well-selected accessories.
Ikat-clad picture frames, lacquered trays and neon-hued travel backgammon sets are colourful and playful, yet Grove still has a polished ambiance that doesn’t scare away a more sophisticated palette.
Grove also stocks a selection of fresh cut flowers in a flower bar behind the counter for custom arrangements and will deliver anywhere in Manhattan.
Some of my absolute favourites from the shop are:
A black and white polkadot ashtray, $45 is a perfect place to stash your keys on a front hall console.
Croc-embossed leather coasters with nailhead detailing are glam and edgy all in one. I picked up two sets of the turquoise colour for our newly revamped family room.
This lucite trunk, $650 is to die for. End of story.
