Concierge.com's insider take:
Interior designers, design-driven expats, and quality-conscious Vietnamese all frequent Bao Toan's tasteful downtown showroom, which features his custom furniture and period reproductions. The graceful, high-end pieces, frequently made from mahogany or recycled old timber and fabrics such as cow skin, are often inspired by Art Deco styles. Made-to-order pieces take three weeks to build; the store can ship them worldwide. Bao also offers a full interior-design service, from concept through construction to installation.
Open daily 8:30 am to 6 pm; call ahead Sundays and holidays.
