Profile

The walk from the C-train stop to this furniture store takes one from the manic discount clothing  shops, auto parts stores, and fast-food joints of Fulton Avenue to the brick four-stories and playgrounds at the heart of Bed-Stuy. Local native Ban (just Ban) brought his store here to be among the many beautiful brownstones he came to know from his career in real estate. It's the aesthetic he looks to capture in his shop, with antique chairs, dark-wood tables, and Tiffany-inspired lamps and fixtures—all rescued from estates across the city and the country. Ban also works with suppliers from Southeast Asia and South America to not only bring antiques to the store (like screens, statues, and reading tables from China), but also to encourage young artisans to produce new hand-crafted works (like a cabinet that converts into a bar or an elaborately scrolled console table). All this artistry comes at a steep price, and the store only accepts cash payments.
