What distinguishes Mociun from other Brooklyn home goods stores?
We specialize in original, handmade ceramics by artists from all over the country. The store space is open, bright and spacious with an understated and unusual aesthetic.

What trends are you seeing for home design in Brooklyn?
People seem to love ceramics and are more aware of trying to avoid mass produced items. Therefore, anything with an organic/handmade feel seems to be popular. To invest in a handmade piece, where you can support the artist directly, seems to be of value. Also, unique shapes, etchings and playful designs are definitely gaining popularity lately!
