Linhardt, a "green" jewelry store, has opened in the East Village. "The store itself, custom-designed by Maine-based Wary Meyers has a calming, organic flow, and the rusticity of a New England shoreline. Design details, such as wall-mounted floating display cases, are all made from salvaged re-purposed materials. The door handle is taken from 'a 70s wingback sofa which washed ashore on a Maine island.' The various planks are rescued from an old church, schoolhouse, and barn in Maine. The pendant lamps are each made from two garden shop plastic planters." [i am a fashion designer. gee]
