Best Of 2013 NYC Holiday Retail Windows [Pics]
PSFK's annual survey of design-centric retail windows includes ABC Carpet and Home, Tekserve and Bergdorf-Goodman.
December in New York City means retailers reveal their best attention grabbing window designs of the year. PSFK surveyed from the traditional boutique region of Madison to the flagship store stretch of 5th Ave and ending in Soho. With the economy still trying to level out, the 2013 holiday retail season in the city saw a lot of stores pushing strong sales messages over flashy visuals. There was also a paring back of elaborate displays from years’ past. Some retailers moved completely away from any Christmas references.
Here’s our picks for the best creative, artistic, edgy and visually exciting windows scattered around Manhattan:
ABC Carpet and Home – 888 Broadway
Created a series of sliced open rooms with the theme ‘In Pursuit of Magic’ where displays continued underneath floors and inside shelves.

Bergdorf-Goodman – 754 5th Ave.
