Sweet Goods NYC

I don’t know about you, but I have a definite love affair with mid century modern furniture. Maybe it stems from the history behind it. The Modernist movement that occurred 60 years ago really put America at the forefront of furniture design.  Mid century modern furniture just oozes with this optimism of its generation. Charles and Ray Eames are probably the most recognized American modern designers. With there focus on sleek, modern and simple, they also strived for functionality and affordability. This couple wanted all people and families to enjoy beautiful aesthetics within there home. I love their furniture for this reason most of all!

Thanks to the wonderful world of Instagram, I discovered a super talented girl, based out of Brooklyn NY who scours the streets and Internet for old mid century pieces and gives them a fabulous new life! Sweet Goods is the shop name, and I think that is so appropriate! Wouldn’t it be sweet to have a piece of Americana in your home! I think it shows honor to these historical pieces, that she refreshes their life. It’s important that they are always around, and Sweet Goods is definitely playing a role in their preservation. Sweet Goods owns a shop through Etsy and also has a blog through tumblr, where you can follow some of the transformations of their finds. In her Etsy shop you can also find some really fun modern accessories and light fixtures. If you love modern furniture, you will love this little shop!


Hope enjoy browsing and have a wonderful weekend!
