“The question of what you want to own is actually the question of how you want to live your life.” While the premise of the books from Japanese de-cluttering expert, Marie Kondo, is to rid your household of things that don’t bring you joy, one could suggest that this philosophy of thoughtful, meaningful curation is exactly what design store, Home of the Brave, stands for when selecting pieces for their modern brand of home decor. 

Founded by husband and wife duo, Max and Bethany Vogel of Brooklyn clothing boutique Wolves Within, Home of the Brave started its humble beginnings as a seasonal pop-up shop with emphasis on high quality, designer-made goods that tell a story. It wasn’t long until the married couple decided to open its brick and mortar location in February of 2014, to serve its stylish community of Greenpoint locals like passersby Verena Michelitsch and Eva Goicochea

The perfect place to find a chic housewarming gift or a little something to ‘spark joy’ in your New York home.

Although the store is modest in terms of square feet, its feng shui is harmonious and you’ll easily find yourself drawn into it’s illuminating world of indigo-dipped porcelain bowls, Japanese Husami glazed mugs, elegant Danish enamel cookware and beautifully patterned tea towels.
