Welcome new home goods and lifestyle store Brick + Mortar to the Williamsburg waterfront. The design shop is in soft-open mode currently, and will host a grand opening celebration this weekend, with 10% off Saturday and Sunday. Expect to find a potpourri of established designers and under-the-radar brands, with an emphasis on home accessories with a sense of humor.
Brick + Mortar was co-founded this year by a corporate lawyer and an interior designer. The later is Gregory Coccaro, whose twenty years in retail included co-owning a mid-century modern antique shop in LA. The duo hopes to stock an ever-changing assortment of "fun" housewares in the store, and will launch e-commerce later this year.
