Presently have new wall to wall carpeting installed in my apartment from ABC. What a massive selection! If you are shopping for new flooring you should definitely consider this retailer. Ask for Steve, with a quick chat about my lifestyle

This store is close to robbery. Nice quality furniture, but way overpriced. I purchased a table (supposedly on sale for $5000). I saw the same exact table on sale for 2500 at another store. Boy did I feel robbed. I called to complain

The incessant fast talking East ASian salesman was a blatnat liar. Told me the $900 throw rug was habdnade in Pakistan. Had it cleaned 12 mos. later. Claener said it was a USA machine non-descript rug. Ganiffs if there ever were ones.

ABC Home & Planet is a gorgeous store-within-a-store with a purpose where aesthetic, design and sustainable production meet. Nestled on the third floor of this loft-like wonder emporium, ABC Home & Planet sources bed, bath and apothecary products from indigenous artisans and cooperatives from across the globe ?? India, Israel, Peru, Chile, Guatemala, Morocco. Their products range the eco-spectrum from organic and sustainably harvested textiles to hand-crafted artisanal and recycled/repurposed products.

All of the Home & Planet products tell a story ?? like the beautiful Bedouin embroidered patchwork pillows ($175) created in Israel, created by Jewish and Arab artisans working together from the bottom up; or the deliciously soft organic wool shawls ($95), colored in gentle, earth-toned plant-based dyes which replace the use of harsh toxic chemical dyes. Signs, images and social responsibility icon markings throughout the store add another dimension of storytelling, sharing with the consumer the multiple levels of benefit produced through these products.

It is this type of informed consumerism meets refined aesthetic that always brings me back through this souk-like wonderland, and makes ABC Home the New York design icon that it is.

Ok, so I just came from ABC in NYC (flatiron) and I cannot believe the prices they charge. I brought a beautiful chandalier from OVERSTOCK for $145.00 and I saw the same chandalier at ABC for $4,000. And, mind you mine sparkled so much better. I cannot believe they are totally taking advantage of consumers. You can find the same stuff elsewhere, of better quality and much cheaper. I think this place is like a museum...nice to visit but don't buy......

Pros: nice to window shop

Cons: overpriced

Although ridiculously over-priced this store has some very unique and beautiful things and I have spent a lot of money here. Though money is not a big concern for me I will NOT be shopping here again. I am disappointed that a store of their stature would not be doing their homework BEFORE THEY BUY for their store. I spent $2,000 on bedding and only 2 months later it looks completely thrashed. I am very particular about keeping my bed clean and do not even sit on it with clothes i have worn during the day. Not a single spot on there....BUT after washing a couple times yellow and brown sports have started to develop. AND it wrinkles within minutes of putting them on. I mean it's inexcusable that they would carry designers that are half a--ed that don't have the common sense to test their fabrics. If i am spending that much money they should last me a life time!!! I had hopes of making them a family heirloom to put my mind at ease about the ridiculous amount they cost...but now they will have to go in the garbage. Hate to say it but i should have gone to bed bath and beyond instead. On a good note - I did buy beautiful chargers for $120 a pop. Let's see how long those last :(

Pros: Museum like. Nice to see some pretty pieces

Cons: paying high $$$$$ and getting bad quality items

It never ceases to amaze me what people will spend (waste) their money on.
ABC made me feel like I was walking thru a labyrinth of thrift shops, yard sales and Urban Outfitter's "furnishings? departments. But of course the price tags were 10 times higher.
I could understand if the items you sold were of amazing quality or uniquely beautiful but all I saw was over-priced garbage. For example, a "chandelier" (and I use the term lightly) that looked like some twisted wire hangers and a couple of crystals thrown in was going for $4,000. I kid you not! Throw pillows (made in NY) that were of your typical throw pillow look/quality went for $400 each!
Who is buying this?!?! If you are one of these people who doesn't know WHAT to do with your money, please, please, PLEASE donate it to me!

This store is really redicoulus. Their furniture pieces are really nice, the pricing is SOOOOO high. Seriously. They ask 3 or 4 times the price of the same item in other stores with similar/comperable items.

The quality of the sofas is terrible. Its Ikea quality with Capelini (a famous, high end Italian brand) pricing.

I just got a $5,400 sofa. Its really beautiful but it won't last for more then 3-4 years.

Really disapointed.

PROS: nice collection
CONS: aweful quality. redicoulus pricing

ABC Carpet & Home has about 5 floors filled with home furnishings. Lots of great stuff, rugs, furniture, dishes and all other manner of home furnishings. The sales help are a little snooty and the store can be a confusing maze at times but they do have an excellent selection of merchandise and if you are redecorating it is one of the places in New York you need to check out.

PROS: great selection
CONS: snooty sales staff, expensive

This store has such a wonderful mix of new and old pieces, and affordable new items that look vintage - so you are bound to find some interesting new items for your home or apartment. Don't be put off by the name as they have alot more than just carpets!

Although hideously expensive (but they do have sales!), ABC has the most gorgeous furniture, lamps, fabrics, bed linens, etc. I just purchased an amazing oriental carpet for my new apt at a reasonable price. If you have an entire salary you'd like to spend, this is the place (it's also a great place to browse on a Saturday afternoon).

I love this store (even though I really don't earn enough to shop there very often.) They have so many beautiful pieces that would work in any decor. Their rugs are just beautiful but they have so many lovely decorative accents you can spend hours just admiring them. The last item I bought here was a beautiful dresser top chest. It looks so exotic on my bathroom vanity. I use it to store extra hand towels and a few candles and it really spruces up the room. If any of my friends are reading this - hint, hint, hint...gift certificates to this place would make a great Christmas gift!!!

I had never been to this store until about last summer. I love decorating and being able to come to the store and see so many pillows, chandeliers and items that definitely embrace asian, mediterranean and african blends is amazing. There are a variety of prices throughout this store and as you go from one floor to the other you will find everything from hutches to rugs and all that's in between. This is a must visit for someone who is interested in buying new items or enjoys making their own - you will have lots of ideas after you have left here.

PROS: Tons of home accessories and people in departments
CONS: You may get distracted after seeing all the items available

If you are looking for a unique item for your home head to ABC carpet. The store is packed with items from the far East and Europe. Expect the unexpected.

This is a great place to stock up on quirky textiles. Also a great spot to find the "just right" items for your table.

The prices can be steep--but the quality is good and this is a fun place to shop.

The store is returning to their special look by creating that wonderful Moroccan bazaar atmosphere on the first floor. Thanks!!! Those wonderful beaded lampshades are back too.

I do not agree that ABC should be number 1! True. ABC has an eclectic selection, however, the quality of their chairs, sofas, etc. are not always in good condition. When the furniture frame is falling apart and you're charging approximately $1000 for a chair, you're trying to rip off the client. That's when I chose to look at other stores. Other than that, they have a wonderful selection of items for the home. I love to shop at the warehouse in the Bronx.

ABC today is a sad ghost of its glorious past. 10, even 5, years ago one'd find a mindboggling selection of antiques, linens, bedding, modern furnishings, and gifts at this downtown institution. Hard times (I can only assume) have forced ABC to become a collection of boutiques that have squeezed out the rest of the previously available variety. We looked for down pillows and found one brand, awfully and confusingly packaged. The towels are now mostly Christie's (a great brand.) What's left of Modern furnishings is covered in layers of dust. Yet lots of space is given to rent paying (?) sellers, such as the boring Mitchel Gold furniture and the tacky Eziba shop. Come back, ABC!

After hearing so much about this store, I had the opportunity of visiting it when I was in New York. I can't believe intelligent people would actually pay the prices being asked for the junk in this store. The luxury linens are overpriced, and personally, I found a lot of the items in stores like TJMAXX, Ross & Marshall to be of better quality, the same or better. What they were asking in this store I found in Dallas, Florida and LA for a lot less. In order to show class its sad that one has to be stupid and spend so much for it.
