Olga Guanabara

    If you stop into Olga Guanabara in Dumbo, Olga will most likely come over and say hello. Don’t be alarmed if she smells you or wants you to pet her—the store’s namesake is a beautiful chocolate lab, and Guanabara is the name of the bay in Rio de Janeiro where the owner of the shop, Richard Velloso, met and adopted her. Richard is both the owner and the creative force behind Olga Guanabara: he makes most of the lovely wooden furniture displayed in the store in his workshop, which is encased in milky glass in a corner of the gallery-like space. In addition to the one-of-a-kind pieces crafted by Richard, the shop carries home decor accents and artwork made by local artists. With a few vintage exceptions most of the items are hand-made and unique. The furniture and artwork feature clean lines and understated designs that create an atmosphere of simple elegance and rustic comfort.Show lessRead more
