Yu Interiors: Furniture and Home Accessories

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Chocolate brown walls and warm style abound. Jumping off the C train at Lafayette Avenue, you will see the distinctive YU sign across from the public park in this trendy little corner of Fort Greene. YU is downtown Manhattan style improved and enriched to suit the mellower, warmer lifestyles of the Brooklynati. Selling a mixture of vintage furniture of asian, scandinavian and mid century origin along with new designs by Jonathan Adler, Dwell, BOOM, Jack Spade and others, Ludlow Beckett, the owner, has created a groovy, sophisticated personal look that is hip and easy going at the same time.

Problems? This style is not for everybody, and when something is done up this nice, you aren’t getting Craigslist prices. Aside from the many affordable smaller items, we saw a lovely walnut coffee table for $725 and a lamps for $185. We always maintain, however, that if it’s well made and if you love it, its worth the price. Treat your home to a few really nice things. MGR
