If you like vintage industrial, you'll love City Foundry. Covering two store fronts along the northern side of Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, City Foundry is filled from floor to ceiling with everything metal, from lights to desks, chairs and shelves...
This is the entrance to their annex!
According to the owner, Sohrab Bakhshi, who started this business 6 years ago, "The extensive City Foundry antiques collection specializes in fine mid-century modern and industrial influenced furniture, lighting and artifacts." All true and the prices reflect his pride in his collection. You won't find anything cheap.
We would look here particularly for really unique lighting or the odd metal desk chair to add just the right vintage patina to an otherwise boring room. They also have totally quirky stuff like machine robot sculptures and old school maps of the world. This place is a lot of fun to visit.
*The City Foundry Annex located at 435 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217.
