Going Green
A Design Guru Sets Up Shop

It only takes a few well-chosen items to change your living space from a non-descript hovel into a well-curated refuge of cosmopolitan refinement. The trick is finding the right stuff...
 
Welcome to West and Green, a warehouse-sized treasury of furniture, art and anything else you might want in your apartment, opening Friday in Greenpoint.
 
Don't let the trek to the quiet reaches of northwest Brooklyn put you off. Make the effort and you'll be rewarded with prime rarities plucked from local artists or imported exclusively from foreign dealers. You'll see Belgian bistro chairs mixing with an environmentally sound table made entirely out of recycled tire rubber, or a 1960s credenza cozying up to rare prints of unpublicized photos of Old Hollywood legends like Marilyn Monroe, Kirk Douglas and John Wayne. (Trust us, they're cheaper here than at Christie's.)

The men behind it all are John Krenek, an alumnus of Ferragamo and Gucci, and Martin Nederpelt, a fellow designer who shares studio space in the back. You can take them as your interior design gurus if you're short on inspiration, and if you can't find the exact table you want, they'll gladly lend you a hand and build it for you.
