Dwellings: First Edition
Today, we take you to the West Village, into the home of one of our customers who has been shopping at our store over the past few years and sent us a few great photos of the space! The one bedroom apartment and patio are furnished exclusively with Furnish Green pieces. The furniture, fixtures and accessories are a mix of farm style, shabby and industrial, demonstrating how a blend of styles and eras can be used thoughtfully together to complete the design of your space. We thought you’d like to take a look.
A photo of the front of the apartment, hinting that the building is a pre-war walk-up, slightly worn and full of 19th century charm.
The living room. A good example of the farm and industrial styles being used together. The main piece is an enamel top table, likely from the 50’s, with a WWII era Shaw Walker Navy officer’s chair. A slim oak entry-way table is tucked in on the side, providing a little extra table-top space. Above, you’ll see two old pear crates that have been fitted with typical L brackets to serve as shelving units. For lighting, a wall-mounted 1940’s medical lamp has been installed with a repro Edison squirrel cage bulb. The accents on top are an assortment of medical jars and an old camping lantern.
The kitchen. The main fixture is an industrial 1960’s warehouse pendant lamp, again fitted with an Edison bulb to provide that famous dim glow. A coat rack, made with a raw wood plank and antique flooring nails from the 1800’s, has been re-purposed to serve as an unique kitchen utensil organizer.
Here is a better shot of the wall mounted industrial lamp and the pear crate shelves mentioned above. As you can see, this is an easy shelving system to install and use. An old construction worker’s lunchbox adds a cool accent to the top crate and a GoodCandle sits atop the other, adding light and aroma to the room.
A simple bedroom shot. Plain white linens and an industrial tool bench lamp hooked into the wall for a reading light.
The back patio. This rustic, raw wood farm table has been treated with wood sealant to withstand the weather. It is accompanied by two of our assorted wood folding chairs, which we always try to keep in stock. On top, a small shipping crate is used as an herb planter.
The entertainment. The metal record stand was likely made in the late 60’s and serves as the centerpiece of this part of the living room. It holds a Rotel turntable and a Sansui receiver, both from the 70’s. Sitting next to the stand is a cream and black industrial medical stool from the late 1920’s and above is a dark oak picture frame.
As mentioned above, all of the pieces shown in this post were found here at Furnish Green!
