What is BEAM?
We sell home goods and accessories. We scour the world to find the best of the best in the home and lifestyle product categories, and we personally hand select only those that we believe offer excellent quality and good design. We offer products from established, iconic brands as well as emerging, up-and-coming artists and designers, and strive to create a dynamic, well-edited product mix that keeps it fresh and you in the know. Check out our press section to see what others are saying about us.
Do you have a brick-and-mortar store?
We do! We have a brick-and-mortar store in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York—famous for both its art and design scene, as well as being the birthplace of the modern hipster. Virtually everything you see online (plus more!) is available in our physical store—so come on by if you’re local and want to see anything in person. Our physical store is located on the Williamsburg waterfront at 240 Kent Avenue (at North 1st Street), Brooklyn, NY 11249.
What are your hours?
Our brick-and-mortar store is open daily from 12pm to 7pm, and by appointment. Our website is open 24/7. :)
I have a really great idea for a product for your store! How do I let you know about it?
Awesome! We always love hearing about cool new stuff. Send us an email at email@example.com with the deets. We especially love hearing from artists, designers, and makers themselves.
I like the BEAM look. Can you help me design my house/apartment?
Absolutely! We love helping people create their dream spaces. The BEAM team has 15+ years of professional design experience, and we’re available for residential and commercial projects both large and small. We can help you pick paint colors, choose furniture or accessories, add a new kitchen or bathroom, design a room, or even renovate your entire brownstone. If you’re in the New York metro area, we offer a one-hour, in-home design consultation for $50. For more information, please visit our Interior Design page.
