Shopper's Diary: Chris Lehrecke in Hudson, NY

Issue 30 · Into the Woods · July 30, 2010

The two-mile stretch of Warren Street, in Hudson, New York, is one of the best design and antiques shopping streets anywhere. It's especially worth a detour now that Chris Lehrecke has quietly opened a shop offering his own handhewn furniture and lighting as well as jewelry by Gabrielle Kiss (his wife) and tabletop objects by Ted Muehling. Lehrecke's work reflects African, Japanese, and Shaker influences; his modern yet primitive pedestal stools function as both furniture and sculpture. Lehrecke, who lives nearby in the Dutchess County town of Bangall, says, "All the woods I use are collected from within a 50-mile radius of here. I'd like the store to turn into a lab where I can try new things. " Via Rural Intelligence; photos courtesy of Chris Lehrecke.
