Brooklyn – Red Hook
388 Van Brunt St at Dikeman St
Appointed with neoclassical furniture and glossy black floors, 26-year-old artist Russell Whitmore's first boutique--named after a Brooklyn waterway--transports you back in time via its finely honed collection of 19th-century estate jewelry, table accoutrements and other antique-looking objets. Don't worry about being overwhelmed: Whitmore pares down what's on tap to a gorgeous handful of works from the likes of RISD-trained designer Philip Crangi; Paul DeBlassie IV, a former assistant to Ted Muehling with a penchant for organic, sculptural shapes; and Victorian-influenced Belgian native Natalia Brilli--all displayed in wood museum cases. There's a stunning selection of adornments for less than $200.
