I spent Saturday night in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at the launch party for Omni + furniture at the coolest mid-century minded furniture store - two jakes. The Omni+ line is a welcome addition to the modernist minded shopper who appreciates clean lines and minimal clutter. Typically there is a great reality check when mid century decorating meets 21st century entertainment systems with cords and cables that could support life on Mars! That's where Omni+ enters the equation. Having been in the business of helping homes and offices clean up their act with mounts of all kinds for over 30 years as Omnimount, the company is no stranger to trying to achieve a more organized space.
Williamsburg is always fun and there are a million things to do. two jakes is a great destination for all things mid-century, industrial and like minded accessories. The store has a great selection of Eames furniture & Bisley cabinets - two of my favorite collections!
Omni+ pieces were on display around the store that is oh so Williamsburg in it's laid back approach. Omni+ enlisted design world superstar Karim Rashid to design some of the new collection and Rashid was on hand as well with his beautiful wife. Also in the crowd - Anthony Santelli of Martha Stewart Living and furniture restoration guru - Christophe Pourny. There was a big fashion infusion this night for a typically casual Williamsburg. A few girls could have walked right off a Paris runway!
Two jakes is enough of a reason to hop over to Williamsburg any afternoon. If you get hungry, head to Williamsburger nearby. They have the best burgers in the neighborhood, and mint milshakes - which is reason enough in my book to go to Brooklyn! To check out the pieces from the new collection, click Omni+
