The other day we were exploring Williamsburg, for a change (ha!), and decided to waltz into the Artists & Fleas market. The vendors there are amazing and we can always spend hours there.
The Artists & Fleas market in Williamsburg does get a bit crowded and you will bump into tourists there, fact. But, they have some of the most amazing vendors with extremely unique pieces and great prices!
We passed by a stand showcasing a brand called TightRope and our Founder, Fê Paronetto, wanted to buy every single thing they had! Victoria, one of the owners, explained a little bit about the brand for us.
They are experts in furniture and lighting and have a great range of products with creative designs, mostly made out of beautiful wood.
The company was founded in 2013, in Brooklyn, by Quang Hong and Victoria Young.
As they better explain:
“We work with solid wood, mild and stainless steel, aluminum, glass, and magnets. Our designs strive to balance the old with the new and the organic with the machined. We love the possibilities technology of today presents to us while still utilizing the century old techniques of woodworking, metalworking, and glassblowing. Plus, by combining these aesthetics, techniques, and technology, we have created designs you won’t see anywhere else.”
In addition, the items vary from furniture and lighting, to bulbs and small décor objects.
Some of our tops picks were:
- Walnut Ladder – $450.00
- Q-Bot – from $450.00
- Bubinga Tea Candle Holders – $111.00
- Wooden Air Plant Holder – $20.00
- Walnut V-Leg Coffee Table – $1,500.00
- Ladder Shelf – $2,750.00
So, they are also great if you are looking for a custom made project to make your some or business even nicer! They’ve done some great works that you can check on their website too!
Plus, we’re sure you will also, like Fê, want to purchase everything.
Have fun and take some time the explore the neighborhood.
