Over the past few years, Williamsburg has become a premier shopping destination for vintage fashion, independent labels and unique boutiques, and there is always room for more! Having open just a few days ago, Brooklyn Reclamation on Driggs Avenue is new to the block. Stocked with housewares and furniture, the store specializes in reclaimed, recycled and repurposed goods.
Brooklyn Reclamation’s wares lean toward the Mid-Century modern aesthetic, with an abundance of simple, natural, vintage furniture. Pick up some school desk chairs in orangey hues (with a rack below for your Trapper Keeper) to adorn a dining room table, evoking your old Chemistry class. Speaking of chemistry class, shelves and shelves of carefully organized beakers and test tubes just beg to be repurposed into your home cocktail bar. Encyclopedias and various shop tools also recollect junior high school aesthetics.
The owners, the four Sofky brothers, also restore the furniture and other carefully curated items available for sale to their full glory. The store is organized in decorated sectioned displays, evoking historical museum dioramas. Seeing everything set up also gives customers great creative ideas and incite on how to translate the pieces into their own homes.
The shop’s opening party also featured a raffle giveaway for a one of a kind Herman Miller chair with custom artwork by Sybil Ling. With new furniture being unloaded weekly, Brooklyn Reclamation has already made its mark as a source for restored quality vintage furniture and wares.
