The oldest vintage outpost on Ludlow, Las Venus is a goofy modern furniture store across from TG-170. If the shop's bohemian credentials are somewhat tarnished by a sign near the entrance that says, "Also Visit Las Venus at ABC Carpet and Home," it remains a place where you can buy four uncommonly hideous yet oddly fabulous Liberace-worthy chartreuse crushed velvet and Lucite chairs for $895.
