Shopper's Diary: Chris Lehrecke Shop in Hudson, NY

Issue 33 · Fish & Fowl · August 19, 2011

A while back Chris Lehrecke opened a shop on the two-mile stretch of Warren Street, in Hudson, New York, one of the best design and antiques shopping streets anywhere. It's especially worth a detour now that Lehrecke has expanded the shop, with more furniture on display as well as jewelry by Gabrielle Kiss (his wife), tabletop and hardware items by Ted Muehling, and gilded mirrors by Maureen Fullam. Lehrecke's work reflects African, Japanese, and Shaker influences; his modern yet primitive pieces made from wood collected within a 50-mile radius of his home in Dutchess County function as both furniture and sculpture.
