Reincarnated Furniture, Textiles and Interiors
($$) Mid-Range - ($$$) High-End
Nightwood is a Brooklyn based furniture, textiles and interiors outfit that was founded in 2011 by Ry Scruggs and Nadia Yaron. All of their furniture and textiles are hand crafted one-of-a-kind works of functional art. Inspired by "old things, primitive practices, creative reuse and natural materials", they incorporate both salvaged and scrap wood into their wood furniture, and they use organic, sustainable fabrics, as well as woven
scraps, in their textile-based products.
Name/Title: Nadia Yaron and Ry Scruggs/Owners, designers and makers of all things Nightwood
Open/Launch Date: June 2011 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Inspiration for opening: to have a showroom where we could display all of our work cohesively from hand woven textiles to hand made wood furniture to interior design and artwork.
With the help of a few other ladies, we make most of the merchandise we sell at our store aside from the pottery which is made by Shino Takeda
, and the lighting by Doug Newton
. It's all hand made and sourced in Brooklyn.
Favorite store (other than your own): It's oddly named, but it's called, Dress Shoppe II, and it's located at 83 Second Avenue in NYC. They have many beautiful textiles, clothing and interesting odds and ends for the home.
