Readers, designers and even our editors weighed in on where they go when they need the top linens, tableware, flowers, furniture and more, and not to our surprise, we saw a common theme: It’s the shops that are just as serious about their business as they are about having fun that are the most successful. Choose a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life­. Well, if that old saying is true, these shops must be on a permanent vacation.
