United States,

Citizens of the style world decorate their dining rooms with finds from this tiny shop full of artfully stacked minimalist china, jewel-like tea sets, and cheery place settings. Everything is casually elegant and classic but of-the-moment and, in most cases, surprisingly affordable. The goods are selected by owner Nathalie Smith, a former stylist, so it's not surprising that the well-edited selection of merchandise is arrayed as if ready for its Elle Décor close-up. Pick from among the Moroccan tagines, starfish-shaped bone china candles made in the Philippines, and Thomas Paul melamine plates from Vietnam.

Tip: Small, good things—candles for porcelain candlesticks, cards to top presents—are hidden in the tiny back room of the shop, behind the owner's desk; step around for a peek.
