Based in Brooklyn, New York and doing their thing since 2008, Sit and Read have honed their creativity to produce modernistic furnishings with a twist. Not exactly shabby-chic and not exactly new, this duo takes on the idea of modern furniture by using cimmerian shades and guileless style.
The Soho Loft presents a pristine display of this duo’s concept of filling space with minimal furnishings and svelte designs. Natural materials takes precedence in the space layout with dark hardwood flooring, an exposed brick wall, wooden table, and leather chairs. White walls bolster the space providing an almost invisible backdrop for unlimited imaginativeness. The addition of distressed furnishings add the twist that makes this creative team so different.
The Williamsburg Studio follows a similar concept with straightforward designs coupled with various oddities such as wall art, metal shelving, an ethnic patterned accent rug, sculptures, and verdure. The studio is designed with nostalgic pieces such as vinyl records and an aged brick fireplace. The space beams with natural light, which adds a glow to the otherwise venerable studio design construct.
A more modified, elegant concept is presented in the Williamsburg Penthouse décor. An azure blue colored accent wall adds a striking dimension to the otherwise modest furnishings. A stand alone individually pieced bookshelf beautifully complements the various hints of natural materials and natural illumination. A sleek, glazed wooden floor amalgamates the entire layout solidifying the overall design concept.
The general theme of the Sit And Read design conception appears to be nominal with attention paid to practical concepts splashed with peculiarities. Each piece of furniture adds value and depth to any space. Each piece easily flows with the other. Nothing catches-the-eye in particular, all is one. The duo’s furniture ideas pretty much match their perception of life, “value of well-being is more valuable than possessions. The trick is not to feel possession or to be burdened by them.”
