Manhattan – Lower East Side
121 Orchard St between Delancey and Rivington Sts
This Oriental decor dealer has been importing home furnishings from the Middle East and North Africa for about eight years, which means they surpassed the original Sheherazade's 1001 Arabian nights about five years and several dozen divans ago. Rich walnut benches, tables and mirrors from Syria with mother-of-pearl inlays ($650--$1,600) are almost too pretty to use, despite their solid heft.
