Classic furniture reinterpreted in lustrous wood and leather is the focus at this shop, which -- thanks to a steady parade of ads in the New Yorker and a Madison Avenue branch -- has become nearly as representative of Maine as L.L.Bean has. Shaker, mission, and modern styles are wonderfully reinvented by Tom Moser and his designers and woodworkers, who produce heirloom-quality signed pieces. Nationwide delivery is easy to arrange. There's a good selection of knotted rugs made by an independent artisan, and a good gallery of rotating Maine-made art on-site. Finally, don't miss the Special Opportunity Room and its samples, prototypes, and refurbished pieces; you can save big bucks here.
