Jonathan Burden LLC located in the Redstone Building in Long Island City houses an eclectic and striking collection of antique and contemporary furniture and decorative arts. With an emphasis on scale, quality of materials, surface and construction we hand pick our inventory from many sources, local and far. Our environment at the gallery is welcoming with attentive and knowledgeable staff. Our gallery collaborates with local artists, blacksmiths, ceramicists, glass blowers and cabinet-makers to bring unique contemporary furniture and decorative arts to our clients. ‘Its like taking a trip to London -minus the neverending flight- and I can always count on the store to have pieces with great scale’ (Victoria Hagan).
