1. La Vie En Blanc 

4150 N Federal Hwy, 954.762.9922,

Sophisticated without being stuffy, equal parts elegance and Florida casual, La Vie En Blanc offers the sorts of design touches that would be appropriate in a house on the banks of the Seine or the New River. They also do home interiors that range from clean modern to beachy chic.

2. Adam’s Interiors 

3900 N Federal Hwy, 954.491.ADAM(2326),

A big interiors shop with inventory in many styles and price points, Adam’s is a local place that competes with the big chains. Modern but with many different styles for home and office, Adam’s offers quality choice and value.

3. Island City Traders

2450 Wilton Dr, 954.537.5330,

From modern-modern to midcentury modern, from New York chic to Florida fabulous, Island City Traders has the look and the inventory. Just bought that perfect Dan Duckham house that needs furnishings? Freeze your Mad Men DVD every few seconds to note another style choice? You’ve come to the right place. And if you don’t know what to do with all this style, get help from Island City Traders’ sister company, interior designers Retro Interiors.

4. Encore Interiors consignment

Current location: 2360 N Federal Hwy New location: 2300 S Federal Hwy, 954.727.5759,

There’s big news at Encore; it’s getting ready to move from its current North Federal Highway address to a new location at 2300 S. Federal Hwy. What won’t change, however, is the remarkable, upmarket stock in a place that makes you rethink your understanding of the words “consignment shop.”
