Earnest Sewn and Earnestly Repurposed
If you needed another reason to love Earnest Sewn, beyond its flattering cuts and commitment to handmade denim, then consider its ambient flaghship store in New York’s meatpacking district — which is filled with repurposed treasures, industrial vintage decor, and a wabi sabi feel.
Vintage signs add wit and irreverent humor to the displays, and bobbins of appropriately colored thread abound.
The versatile repurposed ladder serves as a stylish way to display their soft goods, while weathered wood adds a historic and raw touch to the entire store.
Who knew that an antique flour tin could be beautifully repurposed into a magnolia bloom vase? With the metal accents and weathered wood, the vintage industrial feel is outstanding and is nicely complimented with a seagrass rug.
In the back of Earnest Sewn’s store, shoppers enjoy a changing mix of collections and art exhibits. The Trovota Shop ingeniously repurposes antique chairs as creative displays of their clothing.
As part of the “New Hive” collaboration from last summer, organic matter, bees, and jars of honey create an interesting and mysterious ambiance. Don’t the vintage glass honey jars look marvelous as a doorway?
There are so many elements of this repurposed retail shop I would love to incorporate into my home. Look out Anthropologie — it looks like Earnest Sewn is giving you a run for your decor money!
