1ST FLOOR

LuxeHomeOne of the best-kept secrets in the city, the first floor of the Mart is a residential-design mecca filled with 30 kitchen, bath, home-building, and renovation showrooms ripe for browsing and buying. No special pass is required. Our favorite finds include English paints from Farrow & Ball (6), tile from Ann Sacks (4), vintage-inspired kitchen and bath hardware from Urban Archaeology (3), specialty handles and knobs from Katonah Hardware (1) and the Nanz Company (5), and kitchen and bath showrooms such as Wolf (ovens) and Sub-Zero (refrigerators) (2) that change their display of new products each season. A good place to start is the concierge desk (1), where you can grab a free directory of showrooms, lines, product categories, and floor plans. 312-527-7939, luxehome.com
