Local Finds — Flipping Vintage in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Local Finds — Flipping Vintage in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Newcomer Flipping Vintage on the South Side of Williamsburg may have only opened 11 months ago, but owner Joshua Felix—along with co-owner and business partner Salvatore Ciarcia and dog Travis—is crafting his own niche in a neighborhood full of vintage stores. Instead of selling antiques as-is, Joshua uses his interior design background to ‘flip’ furniture by re-upholstering and repainting vintage finds to create unique, one-of-a-kind, repurposed pieces. You can see his visions come to life in the two-level store, in his collection of before and after photos and his client’s elegantly designed rooms

I Want This — Vintage Brutalist Wall Sculpture

I Want This — Vintage Brutalist Wall Sculpture

When I’m on a mission, I don’t stop. After moving around my living room to shake things up, I’ve finally set upon my new favorite layout. I bought a big rug, painted my coffee table a bright teal (trust me, it works!) and installed a secondhand pendant lamp. Not quite done, I’ve been fixated on the hole in my gallery wall. Not exactly a hole, but a void that calls for texture, airiness and something not quite rectangular in shape. I think this could be it.

This vintage Brutalist wall sculpture encompasses the metallic accents of my living room with the Mid-Century finds I’ve accummulated over time. Five feet in length, it’s going to be a statement piece—but one that I think will feel at home in my home.

Find it on SevenBC‘s Krrb corner. $445.

I Want This — Bentwood Wall Shelf

I Want This — Bentwood Wall Shelf

I don’t know exactly what I would use this wall shelf for just yet but I know that I want it! It would be great to house a small plant like they’ve shown in the picture, but I’d also like to put a picture frame on it, or maybe use it as a space to display small knick-knacks that I’ve collected over time.

I’m overwhelmed with all of the possible places I could hang this. It would work perfectly in every room and it would look fantastic hanging on any area of the wall. The options are truly endless! If you’re living in a small city apartment and don’t have enough room for a nightstand, this may work as an alternative. A tiny place to house your phone, a glass of water, your glasses and anything else you may need to reach for at night.

Decorate your walls with this functional wall shelf from Soobc. $50.

It’s hard for me to view most artists as “tortured” when I envision them waking up in a beautiful sunlight filled loft apartment surrounded by knick knacks from their travels abroad, paintings and photographs from fellow artist friends.

Focus on utilizing the natural light and arranging things in a comfortable way to help foster the creative genius within!
