Editor’s Note: This week we focus on the high caliber resources that Accent on Design® brings to the market, as well as design-oriented sites throughout NY NOW. On Thursday, guest author, retailer Scott Hamm of Shelter Home, talks about his mission to find and bring great design to the Jersey Shore, and shares his best-sellers with us.
Design is in the details. And when it comes to home furnishings, that means a top-to-bottom approach, from luxe lighting to fab floor coverings. NYIGF’s At Home, with locations at Javits and Pier 94, offers a complete range of hard lines and soft goods. With 550 home goods suppliers, it’s one of the largest and diverse selections of trend-focused home resources in the country.

This multipurpose piece converts from a shelf to a drafting desk with one drawer. blueoceantraders.com
Taupe Earthenware Lamp by Lamp Works

For ten years, tastemakers and trendsetters looking for midcentury modern pieces went to Duane Modern for an ever-changing collection of period designers, such as T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Tommi Parzinger and Paul Frankl. In its new Upper East Side location, the shop presents its own period interpretation, with a new, original collection of chic tables, seating and lighting, handcrafted in the northeast U.S. duanemodern.com
At the New York location of Hakkasan, the dramatic Oriental décor by Gilles & Boissier is a big part of the experience. The expansive dining room maintains an intimate atmosphere with seating in small chambers, separated by silk banquettes and carved Chinese screens. The delicate, Asian-inspired dishes are equally detail-focused. hakkasan.com/newyork
