Hey Brooklyn! We’re here!

Cobble Hill, we just opened our doors on Bergen Street! Here’s a taste of what’s literally in store.

We’ve always been inspired by lives that are creatively charged and brimming with imaginative pursuits. In that spirit, our very first Brooklyn store is overflowing with an array of custom pieces from a group of artists who fuel our curiosity and light up our synapses. The space is an ode to books without words: graphic novels, illustrated stories, sketchbooks, and the like. (A specialty selection of those books is available for purchase.) We’ve also got a cluster of bookish notecards from New York City’s own Joana Avillez and free reading maps from a favorite collaborator, Jason Polan. Fun bonus: if you purchase sunglasses for takeaway, you’ll receive a lens cloth printed with this very map.

Step inside and take a look at a mural from comic book artist Jim Rugg (inside our #warbywashroom below), framed sketches from cartoonist and illustrator Adrian Tomine, original pieces by artist Shantell Martin, and behind our Reference Desk, a mural by Pete Gamlen (that’s it, right above!). Each piece of artwork in the store can be yours (in the form of a free postcard!) found on display toward the back of our space.

We’re in Westside Provisions

We’re getting serious, Atlanta! Two weeks ago, we opened our second store in the city, right in Westside Provisions.

Where the dark millwork and tufted leather of our Buckhead location evoke a classic, well-appointed study, our new spot further downtown is bright and big on contrasts: polished brass library lamps, marble details, and a glossy, blue lacquered ceiling counter the airier, industrial feel of raw concrete flooring and floor-to-ceiling front windows.

Inside, you’ll find original artwork by illustrator Josh Cochran, whose distinctly humorous eye and energetic vibes we’ve long admired, adorning the back wall.

As a special treat, we’re re-releasing our Benchley sunglasses in Crystal, a style from our limited-edition Concentric Collection in 2014, exclusively at our Westside Provisions store.
