task is a lovely new shop located on one of williamsburg’s side streets and filled with a very well chosen selection of home goodies, and is also perfect if you happen to obsess over notebooks and paper as i do. the shop carries lots of great notebooks including some by o check design graphics and eeboo notebooks along with some must-have colored pencils (i didn’t know i needed those but i do now).
i was also surprised, and in love with, task’s small collection of fantastic handmade children’s goodies including these insanely cute wooden blocks by fidoodle and the must-have notebooks above by ganapati studios.
task’s main focus is on the home. they carry the stunningly simple heath ceramics line, linen towels by finnish designer jokipiin pellava, cutipol cutlery from portugal as well as a nice array of pillows and some incredible mirrored vanity trays. task carries a smattering of clothes, more in the black, grey and silvery flowy line of things with tops by burning torch, megan park skirts and a pieces rozae nichols. i really liked the chunky silver and black necklaces by sachin+babi. task is a great place to browse with it’s wide selection of well-edited goodies. don’t expect a bargain but the investment will be well worth it. for some really great photos of the shop visit task’s blog and then you’ll know you have to take a peak. task, 100 n. 3rd street between berry street and wythe avenue, brooklyn, new york, 718.963.2600.
