It’s a great place to hang out and catch the scent of wisteria on the breeze. From our door, we look right into the sides of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Domino Sugar Factory (check out the reflection in the front windows)…we love it here.

We’re in our new space!

This abnormally tall work table is really interesting because…

See the shelves? They have a cut out as though there was supposed to be something like a bolt of fabric sitting on them. We think it would be great in a kitchen. Good for chopping on. $450. SOLD

Don’t be fooled!

This pair of chairs might not get noticed right off because of their quiet, understated appearance. We actually walked right passed them a couple of times! But with closer inspection you can see they are completely hand hewn and have hand forged, square headed, copper nails, and the wood seems to be chestnut, which is very rare! Someone took great care in making these chairs, and they probably reflect the quiet, understated personality of their maker. They’re impressive and deserve a good look. Don’t let their quiet demeanor fool you…

This Scandinavian Walnut Dining Set is big and beautiful.

Walnut

A walnut table with two armchairs and four side chairs, two leaves that extend the table to 9 ft. and table pads that go under a tablecloth to protect it from heat. Based on our research, we believe it is Scandinavian. The extra leaves are very interesting because they are contained on a shelf on the underside of the table, so they don’t take up space in your closet, getting scratched up.  Also on the underside are two beautiful brass mechanisms that unlock the center of the table when you want to expand it.

Walnut table and 6 chairs (believed to be Scandinavian)

This table will make you look like a pro when hosting large parties. So much better than lining up a few small tables, differently shaped at different heights… We think you know what we mean! 6 ft. by 3.5 ft. with (2) 1.5 ft. leaves. $3,800 for the set of 6 chairs and the table with pads. SOLD

A very elegant pair of French art deco mahogany side chairs.

French Art Deco Side Chair

French Art Deco Side Chair

These would be perfect to mix with some more modern pieces. The shape is so elegant and timeless. They’re circa 1920, D.I.M. (Decoration Interieur Moderne) Rene Joubert et Philippe Petit, Paris (1919-1931), with padded horseshoe shaped backs and seats and reeded, tapered legs. The fabric appears to be original as the stuffing is the original horsehair and the detailing is exquisitely hand-done. Surprisingly sturdy and great to sit on. $300 each, or $500 for the pair. SOLD
