Best Vintage Furniture New York 2011 - RePOP
Horse lamps, amoeba tables, severed baby-doll heads—you name it, and it's most likely at RePOP, the offbeat furniture and accessories store. Amble through its spacious warehouse to find such gems as an incredibly creepy Victorian-era medical examination chair, a 1950s glowing Mountain Dew clock, and a curious assortment of tiki masks. Fans of taxidermy will appreciate the myriad critters on display, including a stuffed turtle, goat, deer, and even a woodchuck. Tip: Come prepared to spend a good amount of time combing through the wares, or else you might miss something special, like the ancient crocodile-skin briefcase we found lurking behind a desk. For the home-decorating challenged, the shop also offers interior-design and home-rearrangement services. 143 Roebling St., Brooklyn, 718-260-8032, repopny.com
