Organic Modernism Closes on Avenue A

Organic Modernism, a modernist furniture store with locations in Manhattan and Williamsburg, has closed its shop at 43 Avenue A. James Bekbemir, the brand’s operational manager,  told The Local, “We opened several new locations so we decided to close that one.” The store on the corner of Avenue A and Third Street was smaller than the chain’s seven other stores, and its rent was going up, Mr. Bekbemir said, so the owners decided not to renew the lease.

It’s the third recent home-furnishings store closure in the neighborhood after Elan Antiques in January and Art & Industry earlier this month.
