The whole fun of visiting the house of someone with an “eye"--an artist, a decorator, or even more just someone with strong sense of what’s what and how it goes together—is that you get to see a whole collection of disparate objects that are unified only by the style of the person who sees them, who finds them. Things suddenly go together that you never imagined on the same table or inhabiting the same gap on a bookcase (if there’s ever such a thing as a gap on a bookcase!). Shopping by designer or searching by keywords just yields another random selection and for that reason we have decided to have a few things, but only the best versions and all of them have to pass one simple test: it has to be very hard for us to sell them. We know you’ll see how these fit together and that they are perfectly worthy of the love they will get.

The old New York meaning of Bouwerie was a farm and we love gardens, farms and their buildings. At the Bouwerie we bring together the things we want and love for our houses.
