AphroChic Launches Collection
When it comes to style, these two are at the height of their game! Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason are creating spaces in homes that are electric. This Brooklyn based husband and wife team, collaborated with the team at Guildery to curate, mix, and match prints from AphroChic’s library of original artwork. The initial two collections, Metropolis and Visionary, are a creation of thirteen prints and coordinating solids which can be ordered as digitally printed fabric-by-the yard or applied to wallpaper, throw pillows, ottomans, upholstered headboards and drapery. Once ordered, the domestically produced fabric is printed on-demand by Guildery and applied to the appropriate product. The collection is the perfect fusion of modern and soulful style for which the AphroChic brand is known.

Hats Off to Harlem
When it comes to style, Harlem is definitely the place to go to see fashion forward people who don’t let the mainstream and norm define who they are, or how they dress. If anyone knows this, it’s the innovative proprietor of Harlem’s bespoke hat shop FlameKeepers, Marc Williams, who came to Harlem two years ago with that insight in mind. A hat lover, Marc decided to open his shop in lower Harlem, after spending years working downtown. What he found living and hanging out in in Harlem was that the the energy in the streets infused every part of life and style — thus Flamekeepers was born. It allowed him to ‘keep the flame’ alive of style and swagger he loved so much about the place he called home.
Established in 1999, before Fort Greene was the hot, No. 1 Brooklyn neighborhood it is today, YU Interiors was an inspirational outpost for building a home that reflected style and beauty. Ludlow Beckett, the shop’s founder, had a dream, so he left the corporate world and took charge of his life. With his preference for mid-century furniture and intriguing accessories, YU Interiors was born. The eclectic home shop brings together a charming array of timeless, well designed, functional and affordable items for the home. You’ll find anything from a classic mid-century chair, to a perfect porcelain vase, or a delicately-scented and beguiling candle. YU Interiors offers a carefully curated section of home accessories and vintage furniture items to add character to any space.
