Shopper’s Diary: West & Green in Brooklyn

December 22, 2008

Determined to find some fabulous, out-of-the-ordinary design objects, I made the trek to the edge of Greenpoint in Brooklyn to the new shop West & Green. The sleekly renovated space does not disappoint: it’s filled with unusual, carefully selected mid-century furniture, lighting, and objects. Co-owners John Krenek and Martin Nederpelt design furniture and offer interior design services as well.
