What is Funk & Junk?
Funk & Junk is a Unique Store known for "one of a kind pieces" Why?... Because we create and design almost everything from scratch and/or salvage. Our pieces are for you to be inspired. LET'S DESIGN AND CREATE TOGETHER! Our Love for Lighting is Obvious... We can transform just about anything into a light! Quality handcrafted salvaged woods... Black Walnut, Sycamore, Maple... and mixing metals Zinc... Copper... Even Slate... Gene and I love turning trash... into Treasure :) I am also lucky enough to be an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Stockist. I love creating a piece of my furniture around a color... Annie Sloan chalk paint hands down, has the most beautiful palette I've ever seen... It's how I actually get inspired :)
What makes you different from other furniture stores?
When was the last time you were able to design and create your own pieces? When was the last time you could make your own light? We want you to have your own unique piece, that will stand the test of time, not something out of a catalog.
Where do you get your salvaged materials?
We personally source all of our materials from as many local places as possible, around the Lambertville area.
Is everything made from salvaged materials?
We try to stay true to our upcycling, reuse, repurpose philosophy. If we need a part, we do everything we can to get it salvaged!
Where are you located?
Funk & Junk has been a fixture in Lambertville, NJ, just off Rt 179 (in the teal building around the corner from Sunoco). We are located in what was the private residence and saloon of one of NJ’s first female mayors, Lambertville’s Mary Sheridan. The historic detailing of 19 North Franklin is evident in the large display windows and saloon type French doors. We couldn’t have picked a better place to call ‘home’.
Are you an Annie Sloan Stockist?
Yes! We are a certified Annie Sloan Stockist. We carry all of her paint, waxes, brushes and books! We LOVE her paint and are offering classes too. We know you can purchase her paint on Amazon now, but please support your local businesses.
FUNK & JUNK Furniture & Lighting has built an inventory of amazing salvaged materials. They take pride in the fact that they can create a unique, one-of-a-kind piece from mostly, if not all, reclaimed materials.
Kim & Gene go on picks themselves all around the Lambertville, NJ area. When a piece is created, it is assembled in Gene's studio and then brought into the store.
Everything can be Customized. Everything is Unique. Every piece has a Story.
