“The wood was torn out of the Merc Bar in Soho that my husband and I used to frequent when we first met while we were in college at NYU. When the bar closed a couple of years ago my husband bought the wood and had it installed lining our bedroom walls from floor to ceiling as a surprise to me.”
—Nadine Abramcyk, Tenoverten
Nadine Abramcyk is a serial entrepreneur with a vision. In 2010, she saw a gap in the market for all-natural boutique nail salons, and opened Tenoverten, a line of toxic-free nail care products and salons around NYC, and now Austin and Los Angeles. Abramcyk is just as ethical when it comes to her own personal care, her beauty routine, and her home. A big believer in saging and sourcing products ethically, her home is filled with vintage finds and reclaimed materials. In her bedroom, the walls are covered with wood reclaimed from the Merc Bar, which she used to frequent during her NYU days. Her husband had the walls recovered as a testament to the early days of their courship. Chivalry isn’t dead after all.
