- About Us
Amidst the bustling streets of NYC sits Sheherazade, a quiet oasis of home décor and unique finds from The Middle East and Central Asia. The retail store/showroom features antique and contemporary furnishings from Morocco, Turkey, Andalusia, Egypt, India and Syria either sourced or designed by owner, Rachid Ouassil. Rachid works with talented native artisans to create unique pieces only available at Sheherazade - furniture, lighting, textiles, glassware/pottery and more. Sheherazade celebrates and respects the rich heritage and culture of each artisan, which is uniquely reflected in the workmanship and beauty of each piece.
Sheherazade offers a customized shopping experience unique to the needs of each shopper. Whether you need a small house warming gift, want to dress up your home with new accents or wish to create a specialized chandelier or furniture piece, Sheherazade is excited to find the perfect solution. Our partnership with both clients and talented artisans ensure that any home will have a warm, personal and exotic touch. If you are interested in Sheherazade’s design services please click here.
