This could be my new favorite furniture store.
Price-wise this is no IKEA but I think most of their prices are actually really reasonable. Walking by the storefront I spotted a beautiful Chesterfield sofa in an indigo and cream classic print. At Anthropologie something like this will set you back 3k-to-5k. This one, however, was marked at ~$1800 (http://www.mortiseteno...). I couldn't believe it so I decided to go inside.
Literally, I've never seen a home interiors store I thought displayed such classic but eclectic good taste. There were furniture pieces with stunning custom woodwork and cabinet designs, detailed with iron or walnut burls. Amongst other things, I looked at botanical prints, framed vintage maps, an armillary sphere, pewter (?) monkeys, and cast iron sparrows finished in verdigris. Overall, I'd come here for framed art and odds and ends, also big furniture pieces. The lamps appeared to be priced in the whopper range ($350++) for the few price tags I perused. However, they said they're usually running some kind of sale, which is definitely a plus.
Btw - as said in another review, the lack of tude is truly amazing and part of the reason I made a couple purchases. Nobody looked me up and down, nobody followed me around the store or pressured me to buy, but when I had questions they were helpful, charming, and informed.
If your taste is global but not kitschy, refined but not boring, then get on your shopping shoes and check this place out.
