Weiss is downtown’s unofficial furniture czar: Next door to the retro shop sits his office furniture showroom, a seven-floor emporium that opens to the public each Saturday. The fifth floor, (a.k.a. “Chair World”) is a block-long sea of used office chairs from all walks of life. “We get lots of things from Procter & Gamble and it’s all in really nice condition,” Weiss says. From there, head up one floor to “The Warehouse” and browse filing cabinets and hotel furniture, or down to the second floor for an assortment of consignment pieces. DIYers take heed: bring your imagination and a truck. There’s free parking right next door.
