Bare walls have plenty of advantages—ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with fascinating furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of furniture at Nadeau on 11th Street in the East Village.
Nadeau says its furniture is "with a soul" because it's true artisan work—handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a white double-domed glass-door cabinet ($269), construct bananagrams on a rich hardwood end table ($80), or display photos of loved ones in a variety of colored frames ($12 each).
Nadeau's panoply of furnishings comes in myriad stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of mirrors ($42–$145), vases, and other decorative containers ($16–$69). Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
Nadeau products are built to last and are imported from various locations abroad. Feel free to ask one of the friendly staff members about the item of choice; Nadeau's crew is knowledgeable about products, eager to help customers navigate the expansive showroom, and willing to offer advice on home decorating and catapult construction.
