Originally open exclusively to designers, ArynRichards's wondrous 50,000 square-foot warehouse fills homes with furnishings from a slew of manufacturers, such as Century, Hooker, and Bradington Young. Designer lamps ($75–$150) enlighten areas with decorative flair and emissions of visible electromagnetic radiation, and ArynRichards's stock of oil paintings ($295–$1,200) and prints ($139+) covers naked walls with classical landscapes and artfully naked people. Special pieces such as a black-and-white crackled mosaic vase ($325) can provide an interior answer to a decorator's je ne sais quoi. Styles of furniture and accessories range from contemporary to traditional, accommodating interior furnishing wishes from all eras—modern, postmodern, and unmodern. Furniture bought off the floor can also be delivered the same day for an additional fee.
