Custom Furniture for Fashionistas

Issue 88 · Low-Key Fashion · September 2, 2013

You probably already know about Steven Alan's new enterprise, a home shop in Tribeca. Our favorite offering from this low-key fashion designer? A series of custom sofas and side tables by Jason Pickens. The furniture collection came about when Pickens fabricated a selection of showroom pieces, which inspired the company's vice president of design Ai Bihr to commission a home line. 

Much like the simple, workwear-inspired clothing of Steven Alan, Pickens' furniture is as simple as it comes. Lacking the springs and webbing of traditional upholstery, the sofas are made-to-order with a customizable down-filled fabric and classic wooden base. For more information, visit the Tribeca location at 158 Franklin Street in New York or online at Steven Alan Home.
