Brewster Carriage House Births Atelier Courbet ‘Master Craftsman Shop’

The renovated Brewster Carriage House in Little Italy has been rolling along steadily as a magnet for money. But what of its planned hangout at 177 Mott Street? British developer Ross Morgan initially received the CB2 greenlight for a liquor license on both street and basement levels in 2010, yet the application became mired in the bureaucracy and went nowhere. Today, however, it appears the nightlife idea for this space is off the table.

177 Mott Street is now home to the “Master Craftsman Shop” by Atelier Courbet. They specialize in upscale furniture, accessories, lighting, and even textiles. Don’t expect to afford much in this showpiece showroom, though. For instance, have a gander at the chrome/aluminum foosball table ($8,200) or the collection of cracked vases ($1,290).

The carriage on display is not for sale, but rather an homage to the building’s history.

Atelier Courbet opened last Friday with the requisite launch party. Here’s some babble to digest:

Atelier Courbet brings to your home the world’s precious heritage of centuries-old techniques, exceptional detailing and savoir-faire combined with contemporary design.

Atelier Courbet’s adjacent gallery and shop results from founder, Melanie Courbet scouring the globe for the most exquisite objects, furniture pieces, textiles, and home accessories. Crafted by some of the world’s most skilled hands, in workshops or manufactures established as far back as the 16th century, the tightly curated selection encompasses one-of-a-kind and limited-edition pieces that marry traditional techniques with contemporary design.
