Brooklyn, NY, December 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Rough Hewn Home
has opened a furniture and home furnishings store in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood. The shop features vintage industrial reproductions, French Industrial style furniture, rustic home accents and vintage industrial lighting at an affordable price.
“The natural beauty and rugged simplicity of industrial designs are well suited to the NYC lifestyle,” says shop owner Thomas Buczkowski. Vintage industrial furniture is an enduring trend in the U.S. and in NYC in particular. Due to high demand the style has continued to increase in value. Many industrial furniture makers, such as Restoration Hardware, have even entered the luxury home accessory market with industrial offerings. Loft dwellers and others who prefer tough construction with a stylish silhouette appreciate the industrial style.
French Industrial is a style originating in the French factories during the Industrial Revolution when iron-making and steam power greatly advanced the production of material goods. Original pieces from the era are rare and can only be found in France at a high price. These timeless style furnishings evoke the spirit of a bygone age and are valued for their durability due to the fact they are commonly made with heavy iron components.
Rough Hewn has reproduced several pieces commonly found in the era also using welded iron construction and riveting. In addition, they have complemented the iron’s rustic patina with beautifully finished exotic wood planks. Says Buczkowski, “Our mission is to provide distinctive, timeless designs using durable and sustainable construction at an affordable price.”
Rough Hewn Home is open on the weekends and is located in the Galleria of shops at 145 Front Street, Shop #17, Brooklyn (DUMBO). The shops are a convenient one block from the York Street stop on the F Train; the 1st stop from Manhattan.
