Concierge.com's insider take:
Walk into this large but discreet building on Galisteo Street, not far from the Plaza, and prepare to be overwhelmed by a vast, labyrinthine souk of colorful rugs, marble tables, and thousands of antique doors. In business for more than 30 years, the Serets import furnishings, rugs, and architectural elements like cornices and moldings from Tibet, India, Afghanistan, Spain, Peru, and Southeast Asia. You'll find chests and doors from as early as the 14th century, but a large part of the business is also new furnishings and wares patterned on old designs and made to look antique. To see it in a real-life setting, take a gander at The Inn of the Five Graces, a hotel the Serets founded and decorated. The store takes custom orders and ships around the country.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 9 am to 5:30 pm and Sundays 9:30 am to 5 pm.
