Description

Village Voice's Description

Darr means "home" in Arabic. When people walk into this shop, they often say something like "I want to move in here!" It's not just the fact that there are beautiful things all around. It's that the beautiful things are arranged in casual little moments, with something extraordinary (a French glass bird feeder, $25) placed on something nostalgic or familiar (a cast iron griddle, $65). In the center of the store, some of the most decadent pieces are thrown together nonchalantly. A late-18th-century wooden table ($3,600) from Morocco is arranged with rolled-up Chinese ancestor portraits from the '20s ($350 each), silver lamps from the '70s ($550 for the pair), a samurai training helmet from Japan, circa 1870 ($495), a derby hat mold from the late 19th century ($185), and a taxidermy bird in a little cage.

    Darr is one of my favorite shops in Brooklyn. Quality taxidermy, medical charts, fantastic maps.

    Rustic, barn/country feel. Some stuff apparently new. Mostly accents, some furniture

  • Cut & Sew & ME on 10/11/11

    Antique Store - A little too cool for school, almost as if Freeman's did home ware, but lovely stuff nonetheless. That's probably down to the taxidermy
