pernt + michael hennessy

by Grace Bonney

i’ve really been on a wooden furniture kick lately. i’m not sure what it is, but i keep feeling strongly drawn to the warmth and quality of that woodworking and craftsmanship. so when i heard from chris at pernt studio in williamsburg, i was happy to see more beautiful wooden furniture made from salvaged wood (most found and pulled from dumpsters on demolition sites in brooklyn). pernt’s furniture straddles the line between modern and traditional perfectly and i love the details in their furniture like leather straps and “patchwork” wooden surfaces. click here to check out more of their work and contact them about purchasing. thanks, chris!

speaking of great wooden furniture, how cool is this couch/daybed from the michael hennessy shop? i love that sort of pixelated feel…
