week 2: joinery

joinery is a place where all kinds of good things come together. it’s a collage of whimsy and restraint, an ode to vintage and a nod to experimentation, a mixture of the familiar with the exotic. a thing that finds its way into our shop is special. whether it’s made of wood or cloth, whether it was found in our neighborhood or on a trip, we sell it because we admire its craftsmanship, respect its quality, appreciate its uniqueness, and the idea of it makes us happy.” joinery hails from, where else, brooklyn

my picks:

  1. waxed rucksack by southern field industries; $410
  2. homes mobile by kim baise; $90
  3. spencer card case by winter session; $65
  4. dustpan and broom set by redecker; $68
  5. pottery by object & totem; varies
  6. boro pillowcase by joinery; $90-105
  7. hearth stool by tenebras; $295
  8. rag rug by joinery; $160
