Brooklyn – Williamsburg
86 North 6th St at Wythe Ave
Follow the commandments of style in your abode with the help of this shrine to home goods. Near the front, Asian antiques like Chinese cabinets mingle with vintage sofas covered with bold bird- or wood-grain-print cushions by Thomas Paul ($52--$104). In back, an Asian-style apothecary dishes up _the designer's melamine "Sealife" plates ($38 for a set of four dinner size), each with a different aquatic creature. Other exquisite gifts include Brooklyn-based David Barthold's subtly patterned ceramics (from $24 for a cup) and Thea Grant's reworked vintage jewelry _($45--$350).
