A Favorite Housewares Brand Makes the Move to Furniture
Today marks the start of a month of design in New York, so perhaps it’s fitting that we kick things off with a brand that’s been working for years to revitalize the American design scene from the ground up. Good Thing, the Brooklyn-based housewares and accessories label founded by RISD grad Jamie Wolfond in 2014, has always sought to not only engage local manufacturing and producers but also to work with as wide a swath of designers as possible, from Silo Studio and Daniel Emma to Visibility and Studio Gorm. Their newest collection, which debuts at this month’s ICFF, presents a leap from small goods into full-fledged furniture, raising the stakes while staying true to their roots. The collection ranges from a side table by Chen Chen & Kai Williams — made from natural ash and capped with abalone pearl studs — to a powder-coated aluminum stool with a cagelike frame by MSDS. Peep the new collection below, then see it in person later this month!
