We’ve long been taken by Catskills-based furniture designer Brian Persico—for his Shaker-esque, impeccably made wood creations, yes, but also for his attention to the most minute details. “I am committed to using only natural materials, and the wood I use is often from less than 20 miles of my home,” Brian writes on his site. “Beyond the wood, metal hardware, and more tangible materials, my finishes and glues are also made with natural ingredients, many of them recreated according to recipes I’ve discovered from times before most of the toxic chemicals available today were available.”
Meanwhile, we spotted on Instagram that Brian and Hannah gave the previously neutral kitchen a dark wash of paint in recent weeks. “Here’s the results from painting our kitchen green,” Brian’s Instagram caption read. “This year we learned that with two kids and two big doggos…. a white kitchen is unsustainable.”
Join us for a look—and a report on how the new palette’s holding up.
