Organic bedding maker Avocado Green Mattress has its newest experience center, at 57 North 6th St. in Brooklyn. The store showcases Avocado’s natural, eco-luxury mattresses and furniture, as well as loungewear from its sustainable sleepwear line and clean skin and body products.
“We are extremely excited to be opening this new showroom,” said Avocado Vice President of Retail Brett Thornton. “We’ve developed a unique shopping experience that is unlike anything in our industry. The Brooklyn space will carry on the same tradition of our other locations: an inspiring retail space where customers can relax and learn more about Avocado Green Brands.”
Avocado’s knowledgeable team is on hand to explain the nuances of Avocado’s natural and organic materials. The team even encourages guests to spread out on organic mattresses and toppers, rest their heads on pillows and touch the textured, reclaimed wood furniture.
A former blacksmith shop and light manufacturing space, the brick building housing the store was built in 1907. Avocado’s design acknowledges its rich history with cast iron rosettes, period style lighting and built-in details and hand-painted signage. A painting from local artist Katie Spak captures the spirit of Avocado’s sustainability mission.
“I’m thrilled to share our unique reimagining of the building with the community,” said Joanna Harrison, Avocado’s Director of Interior Design. “I think the intentionality and respectfulness to the soul of the neighborhood and era in which the building was originally constructed will shine through.”
