Walking into Neighbor on Piedmont Avenue feels like entering into someone’s super-cool, woodsy cabin in the middle of the city. With plenty of exposed brick and rustic wood fixtures, the stunning textiles (think patterned throws and animal skin rugs), mid-century modern furniture, and eclectic assortment of home goods are in the perfect setting to make your shopping experience feel like you’re hanging out in someone’s home.
The store even has a backyard where they showcase their outdoor goods, serve lunch, and offer classes (like sandal-making and pickling/fermenting) on the weekends!
It was incredibly difficult to pick favorites amongst the striking furs and super-mod chandeliers, but, being such suckers for anything mid-century modern, the white Biscayne Armchairs that greet shoppers right at the door stuck out to us immediately.
The hand-dyed pillow on the left is made by East Bay local Jess Feury (http://www.jess-feury.com), who works with natural and fiber-reactive dyes to make super soft and one-of-a-kind prints on both home textiles and clothing. Her designs are light and fantastically vibran at the same time – and we love that she is a local designer!
The contrasting gold and dark wood of the angular 1970s-style table lamp from Blue Ocean Traders also caught our eye.
To check out everything Neighbor has to offer, go to their website, call them at (510) 594-2288 or head into their store at 4200 Piedmont Avenue in Oakland.
