Shopper’s Diary: Brook Farm General Store in Brooklyn

Francesca Connolly October 08, 2009

A welcome addition to the Brooklyn retail scene: Christopher Winterbourne and Philippa Content’s Brook Farm General Store, tucked under the Williamsburg Bridge (and just steps from Diner, one of our favorite restaurants). The duo sells a mix of new household basics (Picardie glasses, Iris Hantverk brushes, and Matteo linens) with vintage acquisitions. According to Winterbourne, "The concept for the store was to sell a wide range of classic, well-made items with a very specific aesthetic and function. Everything in the store is well designed—in other words it has to function well while retaining its beauty. We find that good design lies in simplicity."

Above: German Natural Fiber Dish Brushes are $6 each. A Pair of Wood Handled Spatulas is $9.

Above: Brook Farm is the only East Coast retailer to carry the full line of Lampe Gras, the original French architect’s lamp favored by Le Corbusier.

Above: Lampe Gras No. 205 Table Lamp in chrome; $660.
