Clients like to shop at Rico, for its carefully edited contemporary collection. ABC can sometimes be a zoo. The Creation of Rico Espinet - of lighting design fame - Rico offers a minimal, contemporary style and, lately, lovely new touches of color.
Standing out from the motley assortment of furniture shops on Atlantic, Rico's large shop draws together an assured and complete stylistic vision from different sources such as Mitchell Gold, Dellarobbia, Maria Yee and Robert Abbey (which produces his lighting designs). Seeing his picks will help narrow down your search. His prices run accordingly, between $500 and $5,000 for furniture, and lighting starting at $150. Citysearch says: ...carefully selected...exquisite glassware...minimalist furniture...for the discerning decorator's living room, home office and bedroom...
