UNLIKE CITY GUIDES
Golden Calf - Cult image
A charming home furnishings store just off Williamsburg’s “furniture row,” Golden Calf is earthy in the way urbanites dream about. Ascribing physicality to the design credo, this quaint store-front offers goods handcrafted from natural materials, with treasures encompassing the old-school Chinese countryside, mid-century Czech digs and modern Danish design, plus all the accoutrements to put the finishing touches on your household habitat. The revolving-door nature of Golden Calf means new items often snatched up in a day’s time, making it more than a one-off destination. And if you’re merely looking to revitalize your own furniture, consider reupholstering here, where the owners sacrifice neither aesthetic nor functionality in revitalizing worn-down yet classic pieces.
