Old Town Scottsdale featuring Main Street Arts & Antiques District and Marshall Way Contemporary Arts District

Old Town Scottsdale still retains some of its Western roots and it's the place to find tokens of the Southwest: turquoise jewelry, cowboy paintings, Navajo rugs, and Mexican crafts. But the area is also known for its strong representation of art, with dozens of galleries and a smattering of antique shops found on Marshall Way and Main Street.

Red Modern Furniture

Even in a town dedicated to antiques and art, Red Modern Furniture stands out for its well-curated combination of old and new (think '50s Russel Wright armchairs alongside contemporary pieces by Max Gottschalk). Expect to spend top dollar here, but when it comes to finding the perfect home accent, there simply is no better place to go shopping. Items can be shipped anywhere in the world.
