You can find Matt at OAM extolling the virtues of a sculptural Niels Otto Møller chair or admiring the typography of a vintage Herman Miller catalog. He can advise on furniture restoration, help you choose era-appropriate fabric for an upholstery job, and recommend a mean cup of coffee (try our neighbor, Gimme Coffee). His eye for harmonious, functional design extends from the furniture he sources to the vintage folding bicycle he rides around town. Some of Matt's favorite designers are Hans Wegner, Nanna Ditzel, Gio Ponti, and Finn Juhl. Come by and ask him why.
In just a few years, OAM has become a destination for collectors, architects, interior decorators, and mid-century design fans—but in a previous life, our building was an Autoglow garage. We polished the original cement floors and insulated the ceiling with recycled wool. The driveway is now a garden, with raised beds of vegetables, blueberry bushes, and flowers. Just as our building has evolved, so has our thriving Williamsburg neighborhood; you'll find many cafés, restaurants, and boutiques to explore.
