The Insider Guide to Vintage Furniture Shopping in Brooklyn
Brooklyn, the design den of colloquial cool, is the next stop on our tour with the vintage furniture experts from Chairish. The quirky borough's homespun brew of eclectic emporiums, historic hubs and novelty nooks makes it the mecca for all things vintage design and décor. The only setback is sifting through the slew of options before you. That's where the expert curators at Chairish come in to grant you insider access to the top 10 furniture shops and trending tastemakers in bountiful Brooklyn. From the charming boutiques of Park Slope to the cultivated haunts of Greenpoint, these one-of-a-kind vintage storefronts are now open e-shops on Chairish. "Brooklyn's defining aesthetic is at once historic and peculiar, lived in but still quite aware of its looks, green but also proudly industrial, handsomely gritty and full of stature but never too serious," Anna Brockway, Chairish's Chief Curator says. "The Royal Tenenbaums would feel right at home." Dare we say it, even Margot.
