Nightwood’s owners Ry Scruggs (who builds) and Nadia Yaron (who sews) hope the move will be advantageous, since they’ll be just three blocks away from their wood shop, where Scruggs spends most of her time.
“Our space is really pretty,” Yaron said. The new address is 36 Waverly Avenue, a multi-story property filled with raw studio space for artists and designers. “It’s in an old doll factory. I guess they made some of the doll parts out of ceramic — they had a big kiln. After the renovation, they left some of the raw brick and the exposed wood ceiling.”
Nightwood will continue to welcome customers by appointment only, as they have for the duration of the three years they’ve been in Williamsburg.
