Designer Kate Rheinstein Brodsky is all about putting a fun, colorful spin on traditional design, and her store—aptly named KRB—is just about as perfect a representation of that as it gets. Located in New York City's Upper East Side, KRB is a hidden gem that anyone who loves antiques and unique decor will want to check out ASAP.
At KRB, there's a little bit of everything—furniture, lighting, decorative accents, tableware, throw pillows, and art—from various time periods. You'll find 18th-century furniture and art from the 1970s alongside contemporary exclusives, like whimsical sculptures by Mark Gagnon and a lacquered table from Kate's own mother, renowned designer Suzanne Rheinstein. Some vintage pieces have even been freshened up and reupholstered in fun new ways, like a pair of mid-18th century Venetian armchairs that have been recovered in a Fortuny fabric that proves camo can absolutely be chic.
KRB is coming up on its 5-year anniversary in NYC, and since the store opened in the fall of 2014, its become a must-see destination for vintage and modern design fans alike. The store is proof that antiques and classical design elements don't have to be styled the same ways you're used to—at KRB, timeless pieces from decades or even centuries ago can still feel totally fresh and exciting.
