If you’re wondering where to pick up new housewares this season, you may want to swing on over to Nolita. Brooklyn’s The Primary Essentials is opening up a new Manhattan-based shop that specializes in locally and globally sourced goods, including a mix of “table top, ceramics, glassware, textiles, and kitchen items from a range of designers and brands.” The store will debut its new in-house home goods line – as “an assortment of functional products that refine everyday classics” – in an effort to provide a more complete home offering for New Yorkers.
Owner Lauren Snyder has curated “an edited mix of special objects for the home…that have a subtle yet distinctive impact,” and has worked with “several artisans near and far to manufacture these products, working to preserve craft heritage around the world as well as close by.” The new artisanal collection includes products made in Brooklyn, Oaxaca, Marrakesh, and India.
The international roster of featured designers include Laurence Brabant Alain Villechange (Le Chatel, France), Helena Emmans (UK), Anna Varendorff (Australia), Giselle Hick (Montanna), and Matthais Kaiser (Austria), among others.
The Primary Essentials (Manhattan) is set to open in early October 2017 and will be located at 3 Centre Market Place.
