A Day of Luxury Interior Design Sourcing in Manhattan

March 26, 2024

As Callender Howorth has taken off in the last few years in the US, we love working in Manhattan and Los Angeles, especially for sourcing.

Manhattan, the heart of New York City, is a treasure trove of luxury interior design shops and showrooms. For those seeking to elevate their living spaces with exquisite furnishings and accessories, a day of interior design sourcing in Manhattan is an experience like no other. From iconic design stores to high-end boutiques, Manhattan offers a wealth of options to fulfill your aesthetic desires. Join us on a journey through the city as we explore the world of luxury interior design sourcing.

Morning Interior Design Shops

Begin your day in the bustling neighborhood of Chelsea at The Future Perfect, a residential concept design gallery that showcases cutting-edge designs from emerging talents. Discover unique and artful furniture designs housed in the five-story St Luke’s Townhouse built in 1901. Limited editions and rare pieces fill this thought-provoking space of residence and gallery. Truly inspiring. 

Worth venturing off to Matter in lower Manhattan.


This gallery and showroom is renowned for exclusively curated national and international designs and is renowned as the place where you gain a tangible grasp of where the design market is heading.

Afternoon Interior Sourcing Visits

As the day progresses, make your way to the Flatiron District, home to a mix of design stores and interior design studios. Stop by ABC Carpet & Home on Broadway, a multi-level emporium that offers a curated selection of furniture, rugs, lighting, and home decor. Lose yourself in the labyrinth of beautifully designed showrooms and let your design visions run wild.

For a more personalized touch, seek out BDDW in SoHo, a luxury furniture boutique known for its handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces. Immerse yourself into the animated world of Taylor Hay’s artisanal craftsmanship and appreciate the attention to detail in every exquisite creation.

Among his A-list clientele of presidents, Hollywood celebs, and rock stars, you will find a playful pioneer sensibility rooted in handmade authenticity.

The Invisible Collection Townhouse in the Upper East Side is a must-stop on any interior design journey in Manhattan.

This beautifully continuously curated two-story townhome is one of our favorite stops as they also encourage younger artists. The airy and heartwarming space feels inspiring and nourishing.

Afternoon Tea in Manhattan

A shopping experience in Manhattan cannot be complete without a proper afternoon tea at the iconic Palm Court at the Plaza Hotel on 5th Avenue. The light fare, crafted cocktails, and the beautiful ceiling-high trees inspired by Central Park make this luxurious afternoon tea experience a must for a perfect day of interior design shopping.

But what is shopping in Manhattan without a stop at the famous blue box of Tiffany’s?

The Blue Box Cafe is another afternoon tea favorite where you are immersed in Tiffany’s signature blue box-themed cafe. Very fun and very Sex in the City!

An eclectic and contemporary furniture design boutique that showcases an eclectic mix of artful modern designs.
