​For years, a gallery ruled as primary function of the 196 Bowery storefront. But the Judith Charles Gallery (nee Charles Bank Gallery) did not make it through last summer. Now, a showroom of a different sort is taking a turn.

Behold, Nest Bedding, which set up shop earlier this week. The window leafing is in place and inventory stocked behind those floor-to-ceiling windows. Not to mention the clever bike-lock security system to keep the doors closed.

Established in 2011, Nest Bedding specializes in “organic and natural” options at “affordable” price points. They offer organic sheet sets, blankets, pillows, and mattresses. 196 Bowery is the flagship brick-and-mortar for the West Coast bedding brand, which boasts four other locations in California.

Official opening of Nest Bedding is a week from tomorrow, January 30.
