Brass Reincarnated: Custom Lighting by Doug Newton for Nightwood

April 30, 2013

When we think of reclaimed furniture, Nadia Yaron and Myriah Scruggs of Nightwood immediately come to mind. The pair collects what they call “lost furniture” in the Brooklyn area and reconstruct pieces from the fragments–and they’ve been doing it from the start, well before the reclamation trend began.

But Yaron and Scruggs’ inventory isn’t limited to furniture and cabinetry since they asked designer Doug Newton to create a series of weighty brass lighting with a vintage appeal. From his studio in Williamsburg, BK Handbuilt, Newton designs custom metal work for restaurants, private homes in NYC, and for all the Soho Houses as well as The Standard. His lights designed for Nightwood each retain the natural patina of their materials and most require a two- to three-week lead time; contact Nightwood for more information.
