Possibly the most elegant space in New York: the Neue Galerie, a museum for German and Austrian art, with interiors designed by Annabelle Selldorf Architects. The gallery’s exquisitely curated museum shop offers a selection of tabletop pieces, furniture, and objects based on original designs from the Biedermeier, Vienna 1900, and the Bauhaus.

Above: Designed by Josef Hoffman in 1905, the nickel-plated pewter Wine Coaster is $100.

Above: Pillows in fabrics by Josef Hoffman and Heinz Weingarten; $150 each. Other items in the collection include napkins, tableclothes, placemats, and quilted utility blankets; the fabric is also available by the yard.

Above: Another Josef Hoffman masterpiece: the Coat Hook, designed in 1904, is available in nickel or nickel-plated brass; $425.

Above: Glassware by Hans Herald Rath; the pitcher is $150 and the tumblers are $75 each (available in six colors: amethyst, blue, citron, crystal, emerald, or rose).
