NEW YORK—ABC Carpet & Home, the renowned New York City retailer, opened its newest location two weeks ago, in Brooklyn’s Industry City.

The 25,000-square-foot store is an open space, featuring two walls of windows. Vignettes are placed throughout the location, while rugs comprise the back half of the store. There are also category and themed areas throughout, such as abcOM (for Buddha and meditative merchandise), Baby and Little Ones, Simply Down and Textiles.

"We're really excited to be here,” said Amy Chender, chief operating officer and merchandising officer for ABC Carpet & Home. Industry City “is becoming a design center.” (Design Within Reach and WantedDesign also have locations at Industry City, a historic industrial space that has been repurposed as both work and retail spaces. A Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams outlet store will soon open as well.)

The new ABC Carpet & Home location is “a curation of the Manhattan store, with an eye to the Brooklyn client," Chender told HFN, adding that some products will be exclusive to the Brooklyn store. Furniture is showcased throughout the store, and a selection of tabletop and housewares are also available.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
