A Brooklyn Flea staple opens its first store
Nightwood has been a Brooklyn Flea fixture since 2008, when self-taught craftswomen Nadia Yaron and Myriah Scruggs first debuted the beautiful, bespoke furnishings they created from discarded furniture.
After three years of selling reclaimed rocking chairs and taking custom orders at the Flea, the ladies now have a storefront all their own. Nightwood's spacious new Williamsburg shop is minimally decorated to showcase the sophisticated repurposed furniture. We fell hard for the elegant lines in the platform beds, the thoughtful details in the spruce coffee table ($1,550) and the industrial edge in the Neptune dining chairs ($1,200 for four).
Beyond their talents for turning old wood into new treasures, Yaron and Scruggs have carved a niche in the furniture world for staining their pieces with tea. The result is a raw, romantic aesthetic that doesn't distract from the wood's natural beauty.
New additions to Nightwood's wood-carving repertoire include a hand-stitched collection of gauzy pillows, alpaca scarves and linen rugs, and an in-store repurposing department for customers' old decor.
We're already daydreaming about rustic reimaginings for our outdated dresser and shabby credenza.
