Like nothing else in town. Beautiful collections from some of the top tableware lines in the business are all at home in Barbara Armajani's lifestyle store. The abundance of sophisticated dinnerware, glassware, and linens—including Juliska, Simon Pearce, Versace, John Derian, Julia Knight, and MacKenzie-Childs—are what attract local tastemakers. And you always know what Ampersand is currently most excited about because the dynamic stacks of goods greet you from the tables that fill the entry arcade. Truly a destination for smart entertainers who need all of the accouterments, including paper goods, hostess gifts, candles, napkin rings (the best in town!), and an equally strong Apothecary Shop filled with bath, beauty, and a men's grooming bar. Hint: Chic brides will want to register here.
