May 7, 2010

Kyle Garner, owner of mid-century furniture dealer Sit and Read, has collaborated with the fashion company Unis and produced a line of one-off pieces upholstered in high-quality Unis fabric remnants (corduroys, felted wools, suiting fabrics). See the restored pieces, along with vintage objects and housewares, at the Unis shop; 226 Elizabeth Street in Nolita NYC.
