trunk show series: housewares by stephane hubert design
In April of 2008 when we were first setting up our new retail location in the East Village, a wonderful couple named Jaime and Stephane passed by and caught us in the middle of construction in our new space, which was fashioned with reclaimed wood. It was then that we learned Stephane is a maker, and works in all reclaimed materials. Eventually I wound up making Jaime’s engagement out of a repurposed family heirloom diamond paired with recycled gold – which lead to making their wedding rings, also with repurposed metals. During this time a wonderful friendship blossomed, and now they are both some of my favorite people in this world – because of their talent, immense love for one another, and incredibly sweet souls!
Since 2008, Stephane has founded his own company, Stephane Hubert Design, which includes a line of housewares made from repurposed materials, and also takes on custom commissioned work for special projects. He has created some gorgeous works for myself and for many people I know – everyone has been thrilled and in awe at his talent and eye for craftsmanship. This Saturday, April 19th from 12-7pm until Sunday April 27 we are featuring some wares from his line during an exclusive trunk show, with all items on sale, made locally right here in NYC, all one-of-a-kind!
While you are at Linhardt Design you can also see the gorgeous jewelry cases Stephane made when fashioning our new retail space. Hope to see you there this week! Linhardt Design, 211 Mott Street (btwn Prince and Spring) 917-338-7822 for more information. Photos by Christine Han.
