Portikea? Portico Home, the super home furniture store from the sizzling 90's seems to have faded a bit, but may be coming back. Featuring more expensive mid priced contemporary furniture in chic dark urban finishes, we have been checking them out at their Chelsea Market location (75 Ninth Ave - just above 15th), where they sell surplus and discontinued items. This is a good place to scoop up good furniture at better prices. We have also bought great soap and natural fiber, big pile bath mats as well.
Word has it that they will be selling their main collection here as well, which makes a ton of sense given the growth of MePa. Hopefully this will not eliminate the sale items anytime soon. OHR
