Another man’s trash is someone else’s treasure at Sunday Love. Owners Ned Martin, Scott Martin and Greer Keeble consider their Williamsburg shop a “rescue and adoption agency” where they specialize in restoring old, discarded pieces of furniture and putting a new spin on it. “We really like keeping the juxtaposition of the old style and history from the previous owners with our clean and finished look,” co-owner Scott Martin says. The trio want the basement-level store to look warm and homey, so they designed the workspace behind the register for customers' viewing pleasure, then divided the retail area into little room scenes. Small items such as jewelry, drinking glasses and clothing intermingle with the more prominent pieces of redesigned vintage furniture, like a coffee or dining table. Check out standout pieces such as the “anatomy” side table with skeleton designs ($125), a late-’40s Philco stereo system remade into a wet bar ($315) and a sunburst clock with a mod green design ($60). Don’t see something you like? You can also bring in your own piece to be custom refurbished.
