5 Handmade Furniture Favorites from BDDW

Irwin Weiner ASID - Last week I told you how I was early for a client appointment in lower Manhattan and took advantage of the extra time to go for a Soho neighborhood stroll, discovering some teriffic design stores. A cluster of posts on Design2Share will be devoted to telling you what I found during my pre-meeting walkabout.

Imagine my delight in discovering the BDDW showroom on 5 Crosby Street! The space is wonderful (soaring) and the furnishings are phenomenal. The Craft is on full display with heirloom quality hardwoods, traditional joins, hand-rubbed oil and lacquer finishes, imaginative finishes and materials (add leather to a mirror, and I'm fully engaged), and beautiful designs that gently twist classics - but one would expect no less from Tyler Hays, the accomplished artist and sculptor who founded the company and serves as its design chief. Here are a few of my favorites from BDDW; click on each photo for more information - and explore the BDDW product line for handmade rugs, lighting, mirrors, and other furnishings.

And I loved their Shaker Rug (on the wall in the photo below) and the round Captain's Mirror (in several photos above - don't they look great hanging as a trio?). Let's face it - it's difficult to narrow down to five favorites when everything you see from BDDW is divine.
