Concrete + Water
Based in Brooklyn Concrete + Water is one of our favorite lifestyle boutiques in Williamsburg. Inspired by both the vibrant colors of the tropics and the muted tones of the street, the boutique’s selection of goods – from apparel and accessories to homeware – lends a carefree note to classic style. Both the store itself and the goods chosen embody the belief that quality design is universal and can be taken anywhere with you. And just when you think it couldn’t get any better, they also have an unreal backyard space for hanging out and special events. Seriously, sign us up.
This is not your ordinary lifestyle store. Someware’s curated selection of items are all handcrafted by artisans and designers around the world. They work with talented makers who focus on craftsmanship, quality and design, while also giving back to their communities by contributing to the betterment of those in need. Plus, a percentage of each sale is donated to Live Simply 4 Peru, a ministry that rescues orphaned and abandoned children. Someware celebrates simplicity, cultural richness, and exquisite finishes. Their wares are made for spaces where modern design and traditional craft coexist. If that sounds like your home, we seriously suggest you get to know them.
