At Israeli artist Ayala Serfaty’s just-opened Aqua Creations Showroom, you’ll find a selection of ottomans and chairs covered in velvet or Lycra and in organic shapes—bubbles; poufs.

Housed in a former train station, Made in TLV stocks a sleek range of design books, tabletop pieces, candles, and photographs.

In the emerging Noga district, Rose & Bloom sells funky housewares, including signature “lamp dresses”—lights covered in Mondrian-inspired frock-shaped mylar paper shells.

Vintage hunters will swoon over Retro TLV, a spacious boutique filled with restored furniture by Midcentury masters, including Eames, Nelson, and Aalto. Don’t miss the 1950’s-era Israeli items—from Hebrew-language globes to kibbutz-style chairs.

Talents Design showcases works by such up-and-coming Israeli designers as Dor Carmon. Best finds: orchid-shaped couches and earthy stone tables.

International shipping is available at all stores.
