Furnish Green has carved out a niche in the antiquing scene that is all at once affordable, accessible, and environmentally sustainable. After being introduced to this fine art and learning more about the industry of vintage furniture, owner Nathan Hescock developed a business philosophy founded on the belief that functionality determines value. The store offers a variety of pieces for the living room, bedroom, and dining room as well as interior accents and plants. Patrons can find timeless pre-owned furniture that have been acquired from estates around the NY, NJ, PA, and CT area. All pieces are cleaned, complete and promise a lifetime of charm.

Furnish Green is named so because of its mission statement to embrace business eco-consciousness in just about every aspect of its operation. Rather than rent a storefront, it shares space with two other sister companies to conserve electricity and be energy efficient. This also allows them extended store hours, a convenience for customers who want to view their charming collectibles after work or on the weekends. They also offer rickshaw delivery services in keeping with their low carbon footprint, and typically bundle their truck deliveries to minimize mileage. Furnish Green’s commitment to sustainability is more than another reason to support Hescock’s innovative take on antiquing. By reducing costs in other areas, Hescock keeps the price tag on the antiques reasonable for the budget conscious shopper.
