Design on Madison Avenue: discover the best furniture stores

A stretch of Madison Avenue, bordered by Madison Square Park at the south and the Empire State Building at the north, has emerged as a go-to design destination in New York City. Dubbed the NoMad district (North of Madison Square Park), in recent years this energetic and well-heeled stretch has become home to some of the world’s leading design brands – many of whom are Italian – that have chosen to place their main New York stores at this locale.
