We all know that Soho, in New York, is a prime shopping and dining destination, but what can we also found there? Let DecoNewYork tell you more about the Best Stores in Soho.
SoHo is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City, which in recent history came to the public’s attention for being the location of many artists’ lofts and galleries.
Nowadays, it’s more noted for its variety of shops ranging from trendy upscale boutiques to national and international chain store outlets. The area’s history is an archetypal example of inner-city regeneration and gentrification, encompassing socio-economic, cultural, political and architectural developments.

Almost all of SoHo is included in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, which was designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1973, extended in 2010, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1978. It consists of 26 blocks and approximately 500 buildings, many of them incorporating cast-iron architectural elements. Many side streets in the district are paved with Belgian blocks.
Besides, we would like you to pay attention to the following brands and their stores in SoHo: Rolf Benz, B&B Italia, Flos, Moroso, FLAIR and Ingo Maurer.
Rolf Benz is one of Europe’s most renowned manufacturers of premium upholstered furniture and is already celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. The opening of the flagship store at SoHo design showroom Studio Anise, during ICFF 2014, marked the latest stage in the firm’s strategic expansion. Situated at the heart of one of the city’s most vibrant and creative boroughs, Studio Anise was chosen because of owner Paul Anis’ reputation for introducing top brands to the American market and offers visitors the chance to experience the comfort and precision manufacturing of Rolf Benz’s furniture firsthand.
B&B Italia specializes in modern and contemporary furniture made in Italy.
The italian lighting manufacturer Flos has opened its first American store in SoHo, NY. The store has the company’s most popular fixtures, including classic models like the Arco floor lamp and the Taccia table lamp, by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, as well as more recent pieces like Philippe Starck’s table lamp modeled after an AK-47.
Also, have a look at the beauty of design from Moroso that is an Italian company offering colorful and funky pieces.
The FLAIR Soho store is the result of a longstanding friendship between Nunno, Maroto, Mariotti and Tabacchi. FLAIR in New York represents the opportunity for Nunno and Maroto to bring together the artistic history of Soho, the polish of vintage European furnishings, and their timeless collection of contemporary classics.
German-born, award-winning lighting designer Ingo Maurer’s shop in Soho is almost more art gallery than retailer.
