Eco-friendly, sustainable real wood furniture made in Brooklyn has crossed the bridge to Manhattan in the form of a retail shop on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Handcrafted in the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, the designs range from contemporary to classic with residential and commercial custom work available as well. All woods come from local, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®)-certified sources and the offerings are formaldehyde-free and finished in a selection of low-VOC and toxin-free stains and paints.
“We are excited to offer our customers an easily accessible retail venue where they can see the designs and consult with us to determine the best products for their needs,” said Dimitrios Klonis, president and head designer of urbangreen, which has a complete online offering for customers as well.
The smart designs are perfect for city dwellers, and pieces like the Thompson Collection Bed storage bed have garnered praise as the #1 Best Storage Bed of 2013 by Apartment Therapy. While there is no shortage of on-trend furnishings – from bunk beds to media consoles to curvaceous seating – that can brighten up even the smallest city spaces, urbangreen furniture is completely customizable and can help bring design visions to life in residential and commercial settings.
To complement its environmentally responsible furniture, urbangreen also offers hypoallergenic mattresses and organic bedding and linens as well as lighting fixtures that range from playful to avant-garde.
Delivery is three to four weeks and pieces come fully assembled.
Urban, green and sustainable for the new century.
The urbangreen retail shop is located at 236 East 78th Street, New York, NY 10075 (between Third and Second Avenues), 212-988- 7800 or email@example.com. Store hours: Monday - Friday: 10:30am to 7pm; Saturday: 10am to 6pm & Sunday: 11am to 5 pm.
