Our Story

Our shop is nestled in the charming brownstone neighborhood of Carroll Gardens, as a place for locals to find inspiration and for out-of-town visitors to experience Brooklyn’s old-world appeal. Andrea, our owner, opened Painted Swan in 2017, after returning to Brooklyn from Arizona where she spent many years working for a house flipper and redecorating homes, eager to share her love for interior design with New Yorkers. One of Andrea’s favorite hobbies is hunting for vintage and attending estate-sales in the Hamptons. As she frequently jokes, however, there is only so much stuff you can collect until the Hoarders’ reality show dials your cell. Painted Swan represents more than just a retail store; it’s a glimpse of Andrea’s mind, vision, and creativity. In her shop, she guides you through the journey of exploring antique furniture, exquisite vintage finds, and beyond. Full of fresh ideas and passion for her craft, Andrea helps people elevate their homes, making even the tiniest New York apartments look magazine-cover worthy. At Painted Swan we show you that used, old pieces can easily be transformed into something that’s sophisticated.

Our mission is to show you that beautiful, tasteful decor is affordable.
