Please go to our new link for From The Source.It's not much of a name, but... Susie, our roving reporter stumbled upon From The Source, a new store in Dumbo that imports Dutch inspired wood furniture from Indonesia:
We went to the Dumbo open studios this weekend. There was some really great art! In addition, I found a new source for great wooden furniture. I bought an incredible bench made of gorgeous Mango wood. 6'2" of solid bench for $325. An incredible deal!
Also, custom work can be ordered--tables, desks. I am really excited about this place.
So are we. We just talked with Philip, the owner, and he explained that their furniture is a mix between the Dutch colonizing influence and traditional shapes. 99% of everything is handmade, much from teak, and the lines are being simplified to meet the current style. Their collection includes tables, chairs, beds and storage cabinets - you won't find any upholstered pieces here. (Thanks, Susie!) MGR
