I wanted to introduce you to one of my favorite furniture designers, WONK. Wonk was founded in 2004 in Brooklyn, NY. Their goal is to produce furniture that combines functionality with design to create an ideal and affordable modern living space. Their pieces are all handmade locally in Brooklyn NY. Their craftsmanship and modern sensibility really make for some fantastic pieces. With 15 different colors and 6 choices of wood there is sure to be a combination that fits your home and decor. I personally have my heart set on the Wilson, in a green and dark wood. If you are in Brooklyn take a trip over to their showroom on N. 4th Street in Williamsburg, or Jay Street in Dumbo. They currently have a store wide 15% off sale, and don’t worry if you can’t afford a new coffee table, or just don’t have room for one, they have some great affordable wall shelves, mirrors, and other home decor items as well.

Ed Way and Alexandra Snook are the people behind Wook Woodworking, they have been creating amazing wood furniture and home goods that are to die for. I just got an email from Ed letting me know they have opened a new shop for their line of one-of-a-kind jewelry, welcom Adorn Natural. Just like their furniture everything is made by hand with unparalleled care and attention to detail. These unique pendants are made from salvaged wood and are absolutely stunning. While your over there be sure to check out their belt buckles as well, a great addition to your favorite jeans. If you love their works as much as I do be sure to check back next monday when they open up their inspiration file to the world.
