Paul Johnson’s antique furniture service, Brooklyn Vintage, profiled in these pages a while back, has graduated from its virtual existence into a bricks-and-mortar outlet at — where else? — The Loom. Johnson has teamed up with furniture restorer Kevin Taylor to open the new location in one of the interior “mall” spots of the retail complex on Flushing Avenue.

After two years of brisk online growth selling his wares out of his White Street storage space, Johnson decided to consolidate the restoration and retail parts of his business, and offer a physical location for his customers to visit. Half of the storefront is the showroom, and the other half the workshop where Taylor will use his skills to bring salvaged pieces new life.

Brooklyn Vintage also sells lamps, mirrors, and other decorative accessories, and has branched out into a wider range of styles spanning the 1920s-’70s. They even cater to different budgets: the Designer collection carries rarer specimens of classic design while the Flea Market collection has more affordable restored pieces “without the big name prices.”

Billed as “New York’s only online furniture thrift,” the shop offers restoration and reupholstery for your vintage furniture, will buy and trade pieces — and “helps keep the world free of foam, foil, and MDF.”
