Named after his beloved chocolate lab, Richard Velloso’s home-furnishings shop caters to those with a keen eye for interior design. The rustic warehouse offers a collection of dining ($7,250–$9,750) and coffee tables ($1,350–$4,200) crafted from reclaimed wood and steel in Velloso’s on-site workshop. The former advertising creative director’s handiwork is not for those on a budget, but yellow pine coffee tables with velvet cushion centerpieces and bathtub legs ($2,800), glass-topped tables with stands made from Red Hook tree-stumps ($3,550) and dark steel dining tables in the silhouette of the Manhattan Bridge ($9,275) make for one-of-a-kind showpieces. Velloso also sells jewelry and artwork made by locals, like Alison Layton’s necklace pendants cast from lily petals ($220) and Mauro Baiocco’s alien paintings ($75–$500).
