What is Iconica Social Club? 

When owners Em and Fitzpatrick Withenbury set out to create a new coffee and juice bar, event space, and art gallery in downtown Northampton, Massachusetts, they knew that they needed their space to reflect the uniqueness of their business. Valuing sustainability and their budget, it was a no-brainer to reuse materials. Using salvaged construction materials and secondhand items, they were able to create a kitchen and event space that is functional, full of character, and great for the environment. Some of Iconica’s reclaimed (or, as they like to call it, “remixed”) creations include shelving made from salvaged lumber, a refurbished commercial sink with storage, bookshelf tags made from old hardware, and flexible art gallery lighting made with secondhand lights, just to name a few. Watch our highlight video about Iconica Social Club to hear more of their amazing story.

"Shopping at a reuse place was very interesting to us and appealing not only because we could find more interesting, unique items but also because the prices fit within our budget.”
