Concierge.com's insider take:
Textile designer J. Lamancuso assembles a rotating collection of home furnishings and personal accessories in his two shops. The focus of the Rittenhouse Square location is handbags (animal-friendly Mat and Nat numbers), gifts (Chilewich vinyl placemats), and jewelry (freshwater pearl necklaces by J. himself). If you're in the market for a unique wedding gift, this is the place to go. The Pine Street store on Antique Row (Washington Square West) has a select inventory of vintage Mid-Century Modern, Eames-inspired furniture, and California studio pottery (1201 Pine St.; 215-545-7060; Closed Monday).
Open Mondays noon to 7 pm, Tuesdays through Fridays 11 am to 7 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11 am to 5 pm.
