Shop Girl: Arch Gate

While I was in the city this week I made a trip to Arch Gate.


This store is only a couple of blocks away from my sister’s apt and I drive/walk past it all the time, but had never gone in before.


Walking past it yet again this week I knew it was finally time to step inside and check it out. So happy that I did! I wanted one of everything and I’m certain you will too.


Let me take you on a little virtual trip:


I was in love with that round table! I could see it going in a million different rooms and who doesn’t love those blue/white ginger jars on top of it.


I’m probably going to type LOVE about a million times in this post, but I can’t help it I was in heaven. How amazing is that teal blue armoire and that minty green storage number!


More cool storage units. Love the colors and that hardware!


More armoires:


Love the high-gloss lacquered finish on this piece. It has so many uses, desk, vanity, console table.  I wanted to walk it with this one!


It was a bit hard to get good pictures, because not only was I using my iphone camera, but there was so much furniture in every nook and cranny that it was hard to angle shots, but  I needed to share this piece with grass cloth on the fronts of the drawers and lacquer everywhere else!


Me and my mom both loved this punch of blue color and thought it would be a good piece to stash in a small space and get some storage.


The black and blue piece from above got my attention right away. Love the color combo and that it is all lacquered! High gloss all the way!


Again wanted to bring home every thing in this nook. Especially that red chair.



More red chairs that I was dying over! They were around $250-$300 and I was in love. They also came in brown.


Take a closer peek at the piece below and you can see the greek key pattern done with the shelving.


I spy some blue foo's.



A section dedicated to the color red:


Hope you enjoyed the tour. If you are ever in Manhattan you must go! The prices ranged from $200- $3,000, which didn’t seem too horrible to me. Especially since many of the pieces reminded me of Bungalow 5, which is even pricier.

That blue armoire is just to die for! I love the hardware! Couldn't you just build a whole room around it?!? Thanks for sharing your little jaunts around unique places with those of us who aren't so lucky to have them in our backyard!
