118 N. 3rd St., Philadelphia, PA 19106, United States

stanbul native Eugenie Perret, the owner of this contemporary three-story gallery situated in the heart of Old City, and her partner, Michael Schmick, have capitalized on Philadelphia’s recent design renaissance and turned their shop into a meeting space for the city’s creative set. Philadelphians come as much to check out furnishings by international design stars Hella Jongerius, BarberOsgerby, and Maarten Baas as to support homegrown talents such as furniture maker John Bolle and sculptor Todd Noe. Favorite Finds: Minima is one of the best sources in the country for collectibles, including pieces such as Ben van Berkel’s sinuous Circle sofa (price available upon request). For more portable souvenirs, check out Hiref glass vases ($465) with crescent-shaped stoppers (Perret discovered them in Turkey) and gilded hand-cast bone china skulls by Philadelphia-based artist Candy Depew ($1,450).
