Spurred by their shared interests in the domains of music, fashion, design, collecting, selling, and trading designer furniture throughout NYC, Ed Be and Jared Blake partnered in 2017 to open Lichen’s Brooklyn retail furniture storefront. With the opening of their second store in Manhattan, the founders’ ongoing hope is to appeal to a diverse, but “lich”-minded community.
Lichen is a Brooklyn based interior design incubator. Ed Be & Jared Blake partnered in 2017 combining years of experience collecting, selling and trading designer furniture throughout NYC. Together they aim to create a community of lich-minded individuals enthused by music, creativity, and design.
