You know you can count on stores like IKEA and Target for affordable furniture really no matter where you live, and those are great options, but there's so much more out there (and at every price point), especially in New York. You might not think the big city is the best place to try out furniture IRL, but there's a wealth of furniture and home decor stores—from big showrooms to small boutiques—that stock unique pieces in just about every style, not to mention, plenty of options for beautiful vintage and antique furnishings.
These stores, from chains you might recognize to charming shops you've maybe never even heard of, are all worth checking out if you're shopping for furniture in NYC.
