|The Future Perfect, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, has been showcasing exceptional decorative art and design pieces since 2003. Founded by Dave Alhadeff, The Future Perfect hosts the work of local and international designers, both up-and-coming as well as established, with a focus on unique products and forward thinking. A combination of store, gallery and hang-out space, The Future Perfect is an integral aspect of the Brooklyn design scene. Bizarre wall decor items, like the seemingly dead dolls adorned with chicken feet, are exactly the kind of hard-to-find items that this shop specializes in.

|The Future Perfect’s selection of tabletop decor showcases novel ideas for traditional tableware. Shepard Fairey’s limited edition Obama presidential plates are one of the many items that are exclusively carried here. Jason Miller, a local designer, throws convention to the wind with his tea set collection entitled Seconds, which features inverted and off-center bird prints.|
|Irony is married with visual allure in these unusual vessels from local and international designers.

|Anything goes for The Future Perfect’s selection of furniture and decorative objects. Whether it be Heather Dunbar’s needlepoint graffiti pillows or Nobuho Miya’s iron animal sculptures, The Future Perfect is dedicated to finding the most progressive designs in all categories. Even retro-inspired items have a place as exemplified by Singgih Kartono’s Magno Radio, which incorporates a vintage look with naturally harvested new growth wood.|
