Nova Zembla used to have two stores (one modern, one traditional); now they just have one store in Cobble Hill and a warehouse in Red Hook. All of their wood furniture is made in Jaipur, India, where Nova Zembla has a relationship with a family-run manufacturer, Bob Exports, who exclusively make their designs. We like Nova -- it's a style conscious store, but with non-SoHo prices.
As their website says: Nova Zembla offers a full line of home furnishings and accessories. We specialize in our own exclusive line of eco-friendly hardwood furniture, and work closely with individual customers to create custom-designed pieces. Nova Zembla also features custom upholstery by Cisco Brothers, lamps by Slip, hand-knotted Kashmiri rugs, antique tin mirrors, mantles and coat racks, and a large, eclectic assortment of home accessories and gifts.
