Nathan Hescock launched Furnish Green when clients from his New York Wedding Dance company began to ask about the unique furniture he used to decorate the studio—a davenport here, a chesterfield there. He began touching up vintage furniture as a hobby, collecting the spoils from estate closings, garage sales, and shuttered B&B’s. The habit eventually turned into this green-minded retail business, where Hescock sells pieces ranging from the mid-twentieth century to modern Eames styles. The space brims with apartment-friendly furnishings—drop-leaf typewriter tables, compact sewing tables, vintage maître d' stands, and two-tier end tables—and upholstered couches and larger dressers spill out into the adjacent dance studio. The store specializes in rustic, shabby-chic wardrobes, shelves, and side tables. Most of the lacquers and paints are non-VOC (volatile organic compound) and 50 percent of the profits from donated pieces go to the Nature Conservancy.
