Lion Brand Yarn Studio, New York

"130-Year-Old Brand Gives Its First Store a Green Design"

Taking 1700-square-feet in a 1920s loft, the exposed brick walls marry with a blue wave since curve wall on the left where different activity zones focus on different products. In the first recess, cones of yarn are displayed on cactus-like holders made from plumbing pieces and fittings. On the opposite wall, back-lit translucent polycarbonate panels house yarn in a variety of colors, as well as accessories, books and bags.

Eco-friendly design details include bamboo flooring, resin counters and ceramic floor tiles made from recycled glass and cabinets created from reclaimed sorghum plant stalks.
