2018 Best Unexpected Furniture Mecca

King of Prussia Mall

With two new modern Italian furniture stores (Natuzzi and Calligaris), a sprinkling of so-pretty-you-want-to-live-in-them showrooms (Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Ballard Designs and Arhaus), and Anthropologie’s huge selection of furniture, textiles and fixtures (difficult to find elsewhere except online), the King of Prussia mall is now a homeowner’s holy grail.

2018 Best Consignment Home Goods

ReDecor Home Consignment

2016 Best Fancy Furniture

Studio 882

Bigger doesn't always mean better, but in the case of this Delco design store — which in June upgraded from a 3,000-square-foot showroom to a cavernous, gallery-like 12,600-square-foot space — bigger actually means best, if only because there's extra room for more than 75 lines of high-end furniture and home decor, artfully arranged in vignettes so lovely, you'll want to move right in.
