How We Live @ UncommonGoods
We often intrigued by the quirky finds we discover on UncommonGoods, so we wondered: How do the people who curate these offbeat offerings actually live themselves? Peep inside a few of their homes with us:
Title: Community Outreach Coordinator
Inspired By: Music – especially ethereal tunes like the Mamas and the Papas and the Byrds.
Favorite Design Piece: My sofa! It’s a custom-made blue velvet shelter sofa from the 1970s with a matching ottoman. A man on the Upper West Side was moving to Palm Springs and selling two of them. Scouting it on the internet and transporting it to my Brooklyn apartment was a labor of love.
Favorite Color Palette: Bold black and white with a pop of color – like marigold or neon pink.
Title: Associate Creative Director
Inspired By: I love how color and shape play with each other. Artists like Rothko, Monet and Mondriaan have always been great places for me to draw from.
Favorite Design Piece: I can not get enough wall art. I love being surrounded by my friends’ pieces, my own work, artists I love, and even flea market finds. My two current favorites are some Ladies Home Journal, and Saturday Evening Post covers from the 40s, and an Edward Muybridge reproduction of Dancing that I purchased as a house warming gift to myself when I moved into my new apartment.
Favorite color palette: Grays and whites with pops of color. Right now I want to add yellow and teal to every room!
Title: Associate Buyer
Favorite Design Piece: The walnut desk built by my fiance.
Inspired by: Handmade Houses, Design Sponge, the makers and designers around me.
Favorite color palette: Neutrals, earth tones, whites.
