Baxter & Liebchen
50 Laight St.
(bet. Hudson and Greenwich)
Home decor

You’ll find furniture, lighting, and decorative objects from the 50s and 60s, “but we especially love our early transitional pieces from the 40s,” says founder Andrew Kevelson. (And you wouldn’t be wrong if you wondered whether Baxter & Liebchen had ever sold to “Mad Men.”) The collection is entirely Scandinavian—in order, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, and Finnish—except for a selection of German ceramics.  (“I don’t think we have anything from Iceland.”) When asked to name three designers that Baxter & Liebchen specializes in, Kevelson bristles at the limit but eventually lands on Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, and Ivar Dysthe.
