The Decoration and Design Building in New York is teeming with gifting ideas for all patrons of the building shopping around for their gift-giving needs. Showrooms on each floor have opened their doors to show off stocking-stuff-sized gifts at great prices during the holiday season. Below is a list of what you can find at the D&D Building:

Anichini (Suite 923) scarves, made of Merino wool, are offered in several patterns and colors, along with comfy throw blankets and linen napkin collections.

Création Baumann (Suite 1522) Origami design throws, complete with rolled up 'handles' for convenient storage and packing are as geometric as they are lovely, making a great gift for the friend who has everything—except this throw.

Houlés (Suite 919) is the place to go for fringe and flare. Find the Onyx tassel tieback and fringe collection for a subtle way to spruce up a living room or dining room. The set is completed with small black rings wrapped with a small silver chord and is available in 18 different colors.
