THE RIGHT ANGLE "Jacks" (shown in red finish) is a whimsical take on an outdoor chair. This, and other furniture pieces by Connecticut design duo Robert Bristow and Pilar Proffitt, are on display this month at Ralph Pucci. NYC, (212) 633-0452, www.ralphpucci.net.


CTC&G sat down recently with a group of design professionals to talk about their favorite New York City design resources. Here's what a few revealed:

"Carlos de la Puente Antiques on 60th Street (www.delapuenteantiques.com) is a great source for antique and unique lighting fixtures," says Jean Marie McLaughlin of JMac & Kennedy Interiors.

"Robert Lighton in the A&D Building (www.robertlighton.com) is a go-to source for exceptional case goods. Their beautiful hardwoods and finishes pair magnificently with fine antiques," says Andrea Cross of Fisher Interiors.

"At the start of a project, I head to the Schumacher (www.fschumacher.com) and Lee Jofa (www.leejofa.com) showrooms in the D&D Building for inspiration," says Michele Morgan Harrison of Morgan Harrison Home.

"Rogers & Goffigon in the D&D (212-888-3242) is a favorite fabric source; their textures and color range are perfect for coastal homes. And O'lampia on the Bowery (www.olampia.com) for lighting," says Tricia Izzo of Shelter Interiors.

"For fabrics, holly hunt (www.hollyhunt.com) and Donghia (www.donghia.com) in the D&D offer great weaves and textures. And Profiles at the NYDC (www.profilesny.com) has great furniture," says Krista Fox of Krista Fox Interiors.

"Mecox Gardens on Lexington Avenue (www.mecoxgardens.com) for inspiration—and because it's good eye candy!" says Julianne Stirling, ASID, of Stirling Design Associates.

"For textures and a sophisticated palette: the Bergamo showroom in the D&D (www.bergamofabrics.com)," says Mar Silver of Mar Silver Design.
