Sandy walls and shades of ochre define US furniture brand Sixpenny’s newly opened space in DUMBO.
The Brooklyn design studio, dubbed The Sixpenny Loft, isn’t just a space for browsing furniture; it’s also the company’s coworking space, meeting rooms, and possibly a future home for events. It’s the first physical space Sixpenny has opened, making it the only place in the city where customers can go and see the brand’s products in the flesh.
Clearly, Sixpenny has carefully considered the experience as well, designing a showroom that’s more reminiscent of rustic, European homes than the skyscrapers and warehouses of New York.
Golden walls reflect soft light into the space, with walls punctuated by archways leading to nooks filled with furniture. Wooden flooring and decorative panels reflect the natural materials Sixpenny uses, including recycled fabric and reclaimed timber.
The homely atmosphere is emphasised with Turkish rugs, antique tapestries and Italian oil paintings, chosen to whisk visitors away from the busy streets of New York.
Sixpenny is open by appointment only – but you can take a tour in the gallery above.
