Best Store Anywhere on Broadway - 2004
Readers' Choice: Decade
If your living room is crying out for a hand-carved, hand-painted armoire from India, or maybe a tree-trunk table imported from Pakistan, try Foreign Accents. The gallery-style retailer sells furniture and artifacts from all over the world at wholesale prices, which means you can spice up your home without leaving it. Foreign Accents specializes in dining sets, trunks and cabinetry, much of it manufactured by artisans in Southeast Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Unlike many other internationally flavored furniture stores in town, this one is affordable, with a sales staff that's knowledgeable but not aggressive. Lively up yourself -- and your space.
