Global Design

Sarza

Rye

Walking into this jewel box of a shop in Rye is like taking a trip to a beautiful foreign land. Started by Sarah Briginshaw, who wanted to champion the creativity of her birth country, South Africa, which offered a melting pot of Indian, European, and African cultures, the shop includes everything from furniture and accessories to jewelry and art with an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Often the pieces you find in the shop are handmade and one-of-a-kind.

New Home Design Store

One-of-a-Kind Pieces

Old New House

Katonah

What started as one of the first handful of vintage rug sellers has turned into a go-to for one-of-a-kind pieces with an emphasis on unique, collectible, and decorative antique rugs and vintage carpets. Old New House, which is owned by couple Melissa and Dave Dilmaghani, also sells locally sewn rug pillows, paintings, maps, and small batch furniture made in-house out of its flagship showroom and online. Dave has rugs in his blood — ancestors on both his mother’s and father’s side were rug sellers — so he has the history and the expertise to go along with the products they make and sell.
