Larger Cross, Oldwick, New Jersey

After participating in pop-ups and markets—and working with AD100 designer Alex Papachristidis—founder Alice Minnich opened Larger Cross to embrace New Jersey’s “bucolic lifestyle.” The shop features a wonderful mix of country house essentials, including antique English furniture and silver, Mexican etched glassware, and other stylish finds. Though Larger Cross has select pieces on its web store, its Oldwick location is a must-visit because of its robust inventory and idyllic sage green interior. largercross.com

Good Neighbor, Baltimore 

Think of Good Neighbor as one of the few home decor stores that can appeal to all the senses. Located in Baltimore’s Hampden neighborhood, the retailer boasts a roster of contemporary wares sure to elevate any entryway, living room, or home office. (Highlights include rippled glassware from Ferm Living, Hem’s vibrant side tables, and sleek Scandinavian furniture courtesy of Normann Copenhagen.) Should you get hungry mid-spree, grab a coffee or sweet treat at Good Neighbor’s in-store café. goodneighborshop.com

Yowie, Philadelphia

Eclectic design enthusiasts might know Yowie for its sprightly social media presence; however, its brick-and-mortar store in Philadelphia’s Queen Village is well worth the in-person visit. Yowie is opened only a few days each week, but if you schedule your stop for the right moment, you’ll see that Shannon Maldonado packs the storefront with exclusive ceramics and artwork, bold towels and linens, as well as innovative provisions. Maldonado also regularly stocks the shop with diverse artisans and vendors, offering yet another thing to smile about. shopyowie.com

Lekker Home, Boston

Growing up in Amsterdam, founder Natalie van Dijk had a deep appreciation for all-things home decor—so much so that she studied textile design in Europe and pursued a career in New York City. When she decided to open her shop in Boston’s South End, she blended aspects of her unique journey into one storefront: the sleek aesthetic of Amsterdam, Parisian luxuries, and New York’s iconic innovation. (In fact, lekker is Dutch for “pleasing, enjoyable, and tasty.”) Van Dijk’s perfected the balance of understated and upscale with Armadillo area rugs, office furniture from Knoll, and table lamps by &Tradition. lekkerhome.com

Lantz Collective, Carmel, Indiana

For father-and-daughter duo Barry and Amanda Lantz, great taste runs in the family. Not only does the twosome operate a multidisciplinary design firm together, but they also opened their own discerning design destination in Carmel City Center. When you step into the brick-and-mortar storefront, expect to spot vintage, antique, and contemporary products from High Point, North Carolina; Atlanta; and Paris. lantzcollective.com
