Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Home redecorating is no feeble task, and in this city we take appearances, even those of the home, very seriously. Last year we launched our first Home Goods 38, which put Miami's best home stores on a pedestal. This year, we're unraveling the list again, with a few local favorites added in.

We said goodbye to the obvious– West Elm, Crate & Barrel, Pier 1– and ushered in some cult classics, like Arango, Aragon 101, and Nadeau. This year's Racked 38 is a balanced list of places where you can find a modern Bauhaus-inspired desk chair, or an assortment of antiques and refurbished side tables to make your own shabby chic Shangri-La. Scattered, too, are stores that carry not furniture, but the small accents and kitchenware that make a house a home, because sometimes all you need are a few throw pillows to shape up a shabby space.

Did we miss one of your favorites? We'll be updating the map again next year, so let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. And if you need some inspiration before you hit any of these bad boys up, scroll through our Pinterest board for the ultimate in home decor dreaminess.

Calico Corners

Copy Link
Not sure how to cover that strange oblong window? Stumped on how to match that ottoman you inherited with the rest of your living room? Calico Corners will help you find the perfect designer fabric for any DIY project you might have at home. Plus, the store is perfectly organized by color, and there are plenty of people on staff that will even come to your home to help you redesign your space. [Photo: Facebook]

LoveSac

Copy Link
The Lovesac is a little old place where we can get together... ok, we'll stop with the overture. Really though, just looking at the "sactionals" and single sacs (think beanbags for grownups) makes us want to grab blankets, which are also sold there, and just veg out for the day. The fabric is also washable, so don't feel guilty when your tub of ice cream drips over. [Photo]

Z Gallerie

Copy Link
Z Gallerie has got the goods to make your home and apartment look like a million bucks. Glitzy loveseats, a wide variety of tablewear and lush bedding are just a few of the things you can get here. There's also an entire section dedicated to art, so clear up space on your wall for something spiffy. [Photo]

Artefacto

Copy Link
Artefacto specializes in luxurious, Brazilian-inspired home furnishings and accessories. Recently the brand underwent its first foray into the fabric world with a series of animal prints designed by Artefacto's design experts, so hit up the store for some comfortable and chic cushions and throws.

Victoria's Armoire

Copy Link
Victoria's Armoire has been going strong in the same spot for 20 years, selling the kinds of goods you picture in a shabby chic cottage: french dining chairs, unfinished teak tables, wicker baskets scattered everywhere. It's a Better Home and Gardens dream come true. [Photo: Photo]

Las Tias

Copy Link
At Las Tias, you'll find an eclectic mix of vintage furniture and home accents that date back from the 20s all the way to the 70s. It's no place for a super serious bargain (this is vintage, after all), but it's definitely a place for a pristine lust-worthy piece. [Photo]

Alhambra Antiques

Copy Link
If you're going to buy an antique, you may as well buy the best. At Alhambra you'll find hand selected chandeliers, lanterns, chests, porcelain accents, daybeds and more dating back to the 17th century. This father and daughter-owned shop was featured in the latest Louis Vuitton City Guide, if that's any hint into how legit it is. [Photo]

eclectica

Copy Link
Eclectica specializes in revamping secondhand furniture and home accessories, so much so that it's created its own line of refurbished home goods called homeECOnomics. Before you go though, make sure to call as eclectica is open by appointment only. Otherwise, you can shop eclectica's etsy shop, and luckily for Miamians, many of those items are available for local pick-up only. [Photo: eclectica]

Design Within Reach

Copy Link
Design Within Reach may have closed its Coral Gables location, but its Design District spot has more than four times the space. The cool thing about Design within Reach is that you're encouraged to move things around from mini room to mini room in order to see the full effect of what your mod abode could look like.

Home Design Store

Copy Link
What you find at Home Design Store, you won't find anywhere else. The buyers scope the world for the most unique home furnishings and accents, from rustic trunks and vintage coca cola cases from India to ancient tortilla bowls from Mexico. Prices aren't crazy expensive, and many of Home Design Store's wooden objects are made from reclaimed wood and are designed by the team. There's also a location at Village of Merrick Park, but if you're ballin' on a budget there's an outlet in Brownsville. [Photo]

The Wallpaper Company

Copy Link
The wallpaper of today isn't drab and muted. It's bright, luxurious and well designed, and no one in town does wall patterns better than The Wallpaper Company. They specialize in designer names, and who doesn't want a sliver of Hermès on their wall? [Photo]

Stone Age Antiques

Copy Link
Where better to get nautical antiques than in Miami? We're talking life-size mermaid statues, wooden rum barrels, rustic anchors, and there's also Miami-themed vintage goods, like old travel posters. You can easily make your home resemble a seaside castaway dig, just don't OD on the fish sculptures hanging on the walls. [Photo]

elemental

Copy Link
Eclectic is one way to pin Elemental. Brilliant is another. A dresser shaped like a deer's bum, a green soldier candlestick, a hanger with a lightbulb built in to illuminate your shirt; if it's outlandish, you can find it at this Wynwood store. [Photo: Elemental]

Lincoln Rd Antiques and Collectibles Market

Copy Link
There's nothing you can't find at the Lincoln Road Antique Market, unless you're searching for something boring and conventional. Every Sunday, you can find over 125 vendors selling antique furniture. Some of it's practical, some of it's outrageous. Either way, it's definitely worth a trip. [Photo]
If you like Crate & Barrel, then you'll LOVE CB2. It has the same vibe as its sister store, but with prices that are even more exciting. [Photo]

Bobby Berk Home

Copy Link
You may know Bobby Berk from HGTV, and we must say the interior designer really loves Miami. Word has it his couches are made here and every month his Midtown Miami store features a new local artist. Come here for simple, modern furniture and accessories, and fun little home gifts that are perfect last minute pick-me-ups for parties. [Photo]

Modern Home 2 Go

Copy Link
Modern Home 2 Go is meant for the modernist on a budget, and has three locations: Miami, Doral, and Fort Lauderdale. The store has symmetrical seating, lowered beds, synthetic weave patio furniture and more, only for prices that won't chase you straight out of the store. [Photo]

Luminaire

Copy Link
What started as a lighting showroom in North Miami in 1974, has now become an all-inclusive home design store with showrooms in the Design District, Coral Gables, Chicago, and Doral, where Luminaire's headquareters sits. Every item inside is thoughtful and well-designed, we learned, and the sales associates are design-educated professionals, so you can trust them to help you find the perfect couches, dining room sets, office furniture and accents to match. Aside from that, each location has a dedicated interior architect on duty to help lay out your space if you need a little help. [Photo]

Monica James & Co.

Copy Link
The overall theme at Monica James & Co may seem shabby chic, but there's nothing shabby about this home shop, from the prices to the quality. They have a great selection of wallpaper, fabrics, statement furniture pieces and just about anything you'd need to make a house look like a Hamptons cottage. [Photo]

Jonathan Adler

Copy Link
House have plain beige wall syndrome? Sounds like a case for Jonathan Adler. His design district store is a treasure box of statement throws, artsy lamps, gasp-inducing furniture and any statement piece your chevron-loving heart could desire. [Photo]

The Rug Company

Copy Link
With brands like Alexander McQueen, DVF and Viviene Westwood up for grabs, The Rug Company is like the Bloomingdale's of floor decor. No matter your style, there's surely a rug for you here, along with a matching throw pillow to toss around. [Photo]

Design Shop

Copy Link
You may go to the design shop for a desk, but you stay for the trinkets. A fuchsia mother of Jesus statue? They've got it. Roy Liechtenstein-inspired cardboard animal heads? Everyone needs a set. A hedge in which to store your pencils and phone? As if there was anywhere else to put them. Next time you want to gift someone (or yourself) something cool, check this place out. [Photo]

ModShop

Copy Link
It's colorful, it's cool and it counts Rihanna, Rachel Zoe, and Lauren Conrad as its clients. Modshop is known for its preppy, fun prints, but nearly everything inside is customizable, from the the fabric on a couch to the legs on a table. Prices range from $25 for home accessories to in the thousands for pieces of furniture, but hold off for Modshop's sales which are held nearly every month. [Photo: Modshop]

Anima Domus

Copy Link
Anima Domus has been dominating the contemporary furniture scene in Miami, even before there was an overhaul of modern and contemporary furniture stores. There are two locations; one is in Aventura and the other in the Design District. It's pricey, yes, but it's all authentically Italian and elegantly minimal. [Photo]

Addison House Kids

Copy Link
Face it, kid's bedrooms are cheesy. At Addison Kids, however, they've taken contemporary furniture and shrunken it to adorable sizes, perfect for kids 14 and under. May we suggest a space-saving bed composition with miniature Missoni sheets? Why, yes. Yes, we might. [Photo: Addison Kids]

Sur La Table

Copy Link
If Rachel Ray died and went to heaven, it would look something like Sur La Table. Table linens, cookware, dinnerware, kitchen decor; if it has to do with cooking and dining, this place has got it. [Photo]

Restoration Hardware

Copy Link
Have you ever walked in a room and felt a breath of fresh air? Yeah, it was probably furnished by Restoration Hardware. Much of what you'll find is customizable, from outdoor wicker or rope sets to lighting that catches your eye without a bulb. The vibe is classic and rustic, but to get the full scope of how amazing this store is, sign yourself up for their bible-sized catalog. [Photo]

Ikea Miami

Copy Link
Ikea Miami opened earlier this year and its proven to be a hit with the local crowd. There are 44 rooms of unbelievably affordable Swedish goods, separated into lifestyle, from "the single dad" to "the bachelor with a beach pad." It's also one of the only Ikea stores that carries patio furniture year round. And finally, if you were apprehensive to check it out, we have two words for you: vegan meatballs.

The Sugar Chest Antique Mall

Copy Link
The Sugar Chest Antique Mall may be a bit of a drive, but every antique shopper knows that distance is but a number. It's Florida's largest antique mall, with over 200 vendors under one roof. If you can't find what you're looking for here, then it may not have ever existed. [The Sugar Chest Antique Mall]

Golden Bar Home

Copy Link
Formerly Design Bar, Golden Bar is where you go when you want to find unique home accents like wall quotes, bright vases, yummy candles and fair trade products sourced from around the world. In April, Golden Bar will be opening right next to Golden Bar Clothing on Fuller Street in Coconut Grove but until then, shop at the newly opened Washington Avenue location, or at Design Bar in Commodore Plaza. [Photo: Design Bar]

Aragon 101

Copy Link
Aragon 101 is part globally sourced store, part kitchen. No, seriously. Located just a block north of Miracle Mile, this kitchen/store contains the perfect mix of china and home accents that you can take home, after you've taken part in one of its weekly cooking lessons. [Photo]
It was a sad day when Arango shuttered at Dadeland Mall, but cult followers were happy to discover that the 50-year-old home store had opened on Sunset Drive. In fact, Arango is the oldest operating design store of its kind in America, and its the attention to detail in everything inside that keeps it there. Stop in for modern and functional home accessories, office goods, furniture, and lighting, whether you're shopping for yourself or picking up a gift for a friend. [Photo: Arango]

Berber Trading Company

Copy Link
When you want your home to look like a Moroccan bazaar, it doesn't get more legit than Berber. We meandered through this Upper East Side Moroccan bazaar and scouted out an array of unique glass lanterns, chairs and stools, colorful doors and about everything you'd need to turn an average garden or room into your own African Shangri-La. Everything is imported from Morocco and they'll even work with you to upholster your furniture or create custom cushions and throws with their extensive collection of fabrics out back. [Photo: Ashley Brozic]

Ligne Roset

Copy Link
When you're ready to splurge on a grown-up couch, diningroom set, or desk, visit Ligne Roset. The French brand has been around since 1860, so it's safe to say they know a thing or two about bringing a bit of European Je ne sais quoi into any room. [Photo]

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams

Copy Link
You may be able to see Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams's massive two-story design district flagship from 1-95, but you won't be able to test out any of its modern, but sensible couches, or luxurious beds unless you stroll inside. You can find furniture for every room and space in your home and the best part is its all as comfortable as it is easy on the eye. [Photo]
At Nadeau you'll find "furniture with a soul" as the tagline says. The store curates wood and metal pieces from around the globe, at pretty affordable prices. You'll find an eclectic mix of coastal, industrial, French farmhouse, contemporary, rustic Indian, and British colonial goods here to spruce up any corner of your home.

NIBA Home

Copy Link
When you're looking for pieces that will add a bit of glamour to your home like, let's say, murano glass vases or unique photography, come to Niba. Here you'll find an array of home accessories and furnishings, typically made by small producers, many of them in the U.S.

Threadcount Trend

Copy Link
ThreadCount Trend brings deliciously soft bath linens, bedsheets, statement pillows and more , and you'll be able to feel it all with your fingertips. It's a more boutique-like spinoff store to its parent in the Design District, ThreadCount, and it definitely has a more simplified, modern edge. [Photo]
