Patrick and I spent this past weekend in NYC. I had never been to ABC Home before, and it was #1 on my list of things to do. It is in the flatiron district, at 888 Broadway (there are other locations, too - Bronx, NJ, and Florida - go to the website and click "Locations"), and is quite simply the most amazing place I have ever been.
Here are my photos of the various showrooms, spread out over six massive floors:
How freaking beautiful is that?
Patrick generally enjoyed looking at the furniture, but when he saw this settee he was appalled. He said, "Why would anyone buy that? It's BROKEN!" He was referring to the worn fabric. So cute :) He didn't really love the lucite table, either. And although I'd written him of as a design co-conspirator a long time ago, I'll admit it - that hurt a bit. But no worries - I educated him as to exactly why it was in fact totally fabulous ;)
(To the reader who asked when these come up on OKL, please see the note at the end of this post)
A million pictures later, we made our way to the bar and restaurant on the lower level, called ABC Kitchen.
This was the view from our table:
This was our table - check out the chairs!!!
And our sweet, cute little table itself. This is when I fell hopelessly in love.
See how happy? I could live here for sure.
The food was. To. Die. For. Seriously - amazing. And all served beautifully, on gorgeous china with sterling silver utensils.
The rest are stock images of various parts of the restaurant, far better than what I took on my phone:
