RB Collective | Lackawanna Coffee

Yesterday I shared a favorite new spot in town, Lackawanna Coffee. A sweet little coffee shop that’s tucked in the middle of Downtown Jersey City. For a small shop they’ve used every corner of their space. Each area is decorated appropriately and has its own character that ties in cohesively as one.

One of my favorite areas is a tiny breezeway that leads the way to the outdoor patio area. It’s a bare space that’s been tastefully decorated with curated items by Ian and Julius’s (the owners) good friend, Ron Beinner. As luck would have it Ron was sitting in the patio area working when Taylor and I stopped in for a visit this past weekend. Ian and Julius graciously introduced us and I got to ask Ron about the collection while my friend Taylor captured the space beautifully.

There are candle holders from Berlin, diaries from Paris and vintage finds from Upstate New York. This is just a small collection of his finds around the world. He will be rotating the pieces and adding more as items sell. My favorite was a vintage elephant cover diary from the 1930’s. You can see more of this space here on Taylor’s page.
