products

rare mid century furnishings, books and interior obscurity.

clientele

local loft dwellers, interior conscious polish grannies.

service

store run by the owner who has quite an obsession with his products. sat down and had a good chat about the general state of interior design these days. was very entertaining.

interior

50's office meets designer living room. small space somehow seems about 5 times bigger than it is. light schist grey walls, modular steel shelving, timber floors. fav items include wall mounted claes oldenberg light switch lamp, george nelson for herman miller low table and assorted vintage architecture books.

finally a greenpoint destination for well curated mid century modernism. everything from rare danish modular cabinet units to hand crafted wooden ice buckets. this place offers up just about everything you can't find in the clutter filled garrisons of the typical williamsburg vintage interior store.
