Your A-B-Cs are one of the first, and most fundamental, things you learn in life, right up there with potty training and riding a bike. But after those early childhood lessons, you might not give much thought to the alphabet. However, I’m here to tell you,there’s another A-B-C that you’ll definitely want to learn about as an adult. It might seem less essential than the letters I’m using to write with, but it is essential for anyone looking to create a stylish home. Consider it the alphabet of all things interior, one that starts and ends with abc carpet & home.
Funny enough, abc carpet & home has been around almost as long as the Roman alphabet. (Ok, maybe a few centuries less, but it was founded 125 years ago!) The business began in 1897 as a pushcart selling carpets on New York City's Lower East Side. Since then, they’ve expanded their product range to all areas of the home, relocated to their iconic brick-and-mortar location at 888 Broadway along with an outlet in Brooklyn, and created an extensive online presence for those shopping outside the Big Apple. With a philosophy of “bringing magic home” and creating a sense of belonging in any interior, the retailer continues to set the standard for home decor well into the 21st century.
Rug Options That Will Leave You Floored
With rugs and carpets as its formative offerings, it should come as no surprise that abc still specializes and excels in plush products for laying underfoot. With a variety of expertly crafted styles (including custom options) and an unparalleled rug collection, there is a lot to love about these floor coverings - over 5,000 options to be exact!
Among the standouts, the Alchemy collection offers vibrant, hand-knotted options made entirely from upcycled silk saris, while the Samsara line gives a second life to larger vintage carpets, cutting them down into smaller rugs in saturated tones. Regardless of your design taste, any of their appealing and artistic rug options will bring softness and style (and even sustainability) into your space. And if you tend to gravitate to bespoke offerings, you’ll sure to get lost in their one-of-a-kind section of vintage gems chock full of culture, history, and beauty.

A World Of Decor… Beyond Just Floors
As suggested by the "& home" part of their name, abc also offers much more than just carpets - they have a variety of elevated everyday artisanal decor items too. Eclectic options abound, from furniture to bedding, servingware, pillows, lighting, and even jewelry. With a commitment to ethically-sourced items and handcrafted objects, they offer homewares that are unique and made to be admired (and trust me, they will be). So feast your eyes on these pieces that are sure to add that extra special touch with a focus placed on quality craftsmanship above all.
Prose Highball Glass ($28), Prose Wine Glass ($48)
Part of the exclusive abcDNA line, the Prose glassware collection is the definition of easy, everyday elegance. Equally suited for a dinner party or the dinner table each night, the Highball Glass is handcrafted into a slender shape and striking shade of blue (it also comes in smoke and clear for those seeking something a bit more neutral) while the complementary Prose Wine Glass elevates the art of imbibing to graceful new heights. And though the glassware might appear to be precious, fear not: it’s still dishwasher safe.
Mohair Square Pillow ($150), Mohair Rectangle Pillow ($95)
For an unexpected and elevated take on the decorative pillow, consider a textile you might be more familiar with in sweater form: mohair. Handmade in Spain from the yarn of the Angora goat, these rectangle and square pillows have a fuzzy texture and subtle sheen that certainly sets them apart from your average plush cover. The sumptuous shades on offer — including Ochre, Peony, Stone Green, and Sand — will also add a luxe look to your living room, bedroom or anywhere you decide to display them.
Drape Plate ($98), Adelaide Pitcher ($364)
Achieving Parisian elegance at home is très facile with Astier de Villatte ceramics. Made at a centuries-old workshop in Paris (that formerly housed Napoleon’s silversmith), these pieces are handcrafted using a pottery style passed down from generations, with no two pieces exactly alike, each autographed with the artisan’s signature on the bottom for a personalized touch. The Drape Plate has a delicate scalloped edge detail reminiscent of pretty petals and comes in both a dinner and salad plate size. While the Adelaide Pitcher’s all-over bulbous pattern perfectly showcases the brand’s signature milky white glaze.
The prestige and heritage that comes with building a brand over 125 years is fully on display in everything abc home & carpet puts out into the world. Their commitment to ethically-sourced and handcrafted pieces ensures that each item is not only visually stunning, but also carries a sense of authenticity and charm. Whether you're shopping in-store at their Flagship or Outlet, or exploring their online offerings, abc carpet & home continues to showcase their prestige, heritage, and unwavering dedication to providing top-quality home decor. Wherever you’re shopping, one thing is for sure: abc home & carpet is still very much at the top of their game and full of magic.
