It’s Been A Very Good Year

2014 has brought us some amazing times at The 1896 and Primate Props.  From the yet released movie with Seth Rogen, James Franco, Anthony Mackie and Lizzy Caplan; to television’s Blacklist, National Geographic and Forever; to campaigns for Isopure, DKNY, Under Armour and Reebok; to music videos by Interpol, The Black Keys and Estelle; to amazing shoots for Interview, Harpers Bazaar, Esquire, Elle and Vanity Fair (just to name a few)…we had a ball!

As 2015 draws nearer we look forward to more epic photo and film shoots….and as always we welcome events into our busy schedule.  Whether it was a full house with Urban Daddy/Porsche, Lyft, Guinness or Coors – or creativity was the focus at the NEWD Art Fair – or a happy couple was tying the knot – events, weddings and parties have been an exciting part of life at the 1896.

Pro tip:  slower months like April and August are perfect for booking events.  Email us for information!


The 1896


Primate Prop Feature #1: Pink Rococo Sofa!

Can you see it?  “Girl distraught after a fire in a mess of ashes and debris” …”Girl found in an abandoned building after running away from her controlling family” …”Girl dressed in amazing outfit (dirty and ripped, no doubt) seeks shelter during a terrible storm in the town’s haunted mansion” …only to be discovered on a similarly styled sofa, being that it’s lived there it’s entire lifetime.  Still an elegant period piece, time has only been good to our Pink Rococo Sofa, distressed just enough and torn just a little, exuding that “worn-beauty” effect.  Look at those arms just rolling open to welcome you, and the little legs leaving just enough room for the mice to scurry, and of course the sofa’s strong and detailed back (just like the one on our damsel having survived sleep on the flimsy, unsupportive cushions).  Smudge some black eyeshadow on her cheeks, sit her on this one and I promise, your whimsical warehouse dreams will come to life.




Primate Props in Vogue Italia!

What a beautiful Vogue Italia video featuring some of our favorite props like those original, now perfectly aged and rusted, A-Train doors.  Makes us blissfully happy to know our pieces are being manipulated into even more gorgeous works of art by artists such as Steven Meisel and Gordon Von Steiner.  Watch the Brooklyn Dandies video here… Vogue Italia + Primate Props
