For over 12 years, vintage furniture store Baxter & Liebchen has been a beloved resource for high-quality, Scandinavian furniture. While they were located in a Brooklyn warehouse for many years, they moved to their new home at 50 Laight Street in Tribeca about a year ago. Open 7 days a week, this place is a must-visit for design aficionados. Baxter & Liebchen specializes in Scandinavian furniture from the 1940's through the 1960's. They offer a wide selection of tables, chairs, case goods, vintage accessories, and more. The selection is sophisticated and well-made, and has a maturity that distinguishes itself from other mid-century mod furniture. Keep reading to learn more about this amazing place:
The new store in Tribeca has a simple, refined aesthetic with concrete floors and an industrial edge. Gorgeous furniture pieces are displayed throughout the minimalist space while commercial racks in the back showcase even more inventory. The owners have a deep love and appreciation for fine furniture, and that is reflected in every inch of the space. Each piece has been carefully selected and beautifully restored. These pieces are designed for longevity, and may even increase in value over time.
Baxter & Liebchen was founded in the belief that investment quality furniture can be affordable, and even more beautiful than many new items. The added benefit of buying vintage is that you are also making an environmentally friendly decision! Purchasing used furniture saves trees, and will keep high-quality goods out of the landfill.
In addition to the store in Tribeca, they have a smaller shop at ABC Carpet & Home. They also have a warehouse with additional pieces which are listed on their website online. They offer full-service reupholstery, maintenance and repairs for any of their pieces. Be sure to check out the shop the next time you are in the neighborhood. There is so much to explore and discover -you've really got to see it in person to appreciate all the details and fine craftsmanship.
