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.Read More
