Jellio plans to open in Brooklyn
In mid-May, Brooklyn will get a whole lot sweeter: Jellio http://jellio.com, the candy and childhood nostalgia-inspired furniture and lifestyle brand, has secured a spot in Greenpoint for the new Jellio Design Lab. Part retail store, part showroom-slash-design studio, the Lab will open with an exhibit called “Classics,” (May 13th to August 9th) that's a tribute to iconic items from childhood, with jaw-dropping designs like a Lincoln Logs chair and an arcade-inspired Prize Light, complete with claw and prize. And for tikes who like to tinker, there will also be a display window that gives a glimpse into the actual development of the pieces. Everything on display will be for sale; prices have not been set, but we're pretty sure they won't rock-bottom.
