Dontworrybaby, a Used Bookstore in Austin, is the Ad Hoc Interior We Need Right Now

These days, we spend so much time looking at interiors that boast the perfect Hay sofa, or the just-right Vitsoe shelves, that it can be easy to forget how wonderful anonymous furniture can be. Lucky for us, Austin-based stylist Margaret Williamson Bechtold remembered this when she was sourcing display pieces for her used bookstore Dontworrybaby, which opened in an abandoned cement factory on Austin's East Side earlier this summer.

We Re-Curated Brooklyn’s A/D/O Shop — Here Are 5 Great Things You Can Buy There

We've run an online shop for almost as long as we've run Sight Unseen, yet if we had a dime for every time we've heard the same question over the past 9 years — why don't you open a physical store? — we'd be very, very rich. To all those who have so kindly indulged in a fantasy of shopping Sight Unseen IRL, however, we have big news for you: As of today, we've taken over the curation of the shop at A/D/O in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and filled it with super-affordable furniture, lighting, and housewares by dozens of Sight Unseen-approved brands and designers.

See How Hawkins New York’s Founders Transformed a 1750s Farmhouse Into a Colorful, Modern Home

Hawkins started out primarily producing work for other designers, including Workstead, Alyson Fox, MINNA, and Slowood Studio, but the brand now specializes in simple, elevated basics designed in-house — think enameled bowls, recycled glassware, insanely chic dustpans (it's a thing), and super-saturated waffle towels. But most of the pieces have evolved from a need in Denoly and Blaine's own home, which they bought in seriously dilapidated fashion almost five years ago and have been working on ever since.

Thus OCC Market was born. Opening today at the Lower East Side boutique Coming Soon, it's a shoppable exhibition of obsessive compulsive collections by 10 object enthusiasts in design, food, and fashion.
