ABC easy as 1, 2, 3
When visiting New York many design lovers hear the calls of their mother ship begging them to come home, which means a visit to ABC Carpet & Home .
Visting ABC is an all day affair. There are six different floors with the last one housing our all time favorite rugs.
The one and only Madeline Weinrib (great- grand daughter to the founder of ABC Carpet & Home) has her atelier on floor six. The highest floor in the building aka the one closest to heaven!
It is pure bliss to be surrounded by her beautiful wares:
`Ah one day when I decide that I can deal with only having one kidney I’ll be the proud owner of a Madeline Weinrib rug!
Yes the main problem with ABC Carpet & Home has to be the prices. You may rub shoulders with Julia Roberts while you are there, but you’ll also need a wallet like hers to purchase some of their items.
Don’t worry there is hope for us yet! A quick jaunt to the Bronx and you can get your ABC Carpet & Home fix for a fraction of the price at their outlet store!
Now don’t get too excited. When things are normally priced in the thousands a discount on them can still be in the thousands, but there are some good deals to be found.
Here is what we where met with upon entering the store:
Loved seeing all the carpet samples displayed on the wall. It looked like a massive collage.
The outlet was full of furniture. Many styles to choose from, but we saw a lot of Asian inspired pieces.
Continuation of furniture:
They did have a small section with bath and bedding pieces as well.
The 2nd level houses all of their carpets and it was on that floor that we spotted Madeline Weinrib rugs and pillows! Some of the pillows were a great deal. That massive green chevron pillow was only $99 and some of the smaller toss pillows were $65!
While we walked away empty handed it was a fun trip. Plus a perk for drivers is that they have a parking lot, which is a perk for stores in the NY metro area!
*Just realized I never mentioned who the “we” was during my post. This trip was part of my adventure with Caitlin.
Hope you enjoyed my little tour.
