Sun & Sky is a new spa/salon on Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn that combines luxury with the art of body and soul nurturing. This is no ordinary spa. Sun & Sky is unique in the way it strives for ultimate relaxation by combining Eastern and Chinese practices and philosophies with a modern, minimalistic approach — resulting in a truly stress-free experience. We recently met with co-owner Edward Kurilla to talk about founding the business and got the inside scoop on what’s next for Sun & Sky.
DBP: Tell us a little bit about yourself and the business.
Edward Kurilla (EK): I moved to New York City about ten years ago, and Sun & Sky is a project my wife Cindy and I started about five years ago. The business is Cindy’s life dream. Shortly after we met, and I was looking to spend more time with her, she asked me if I’d be interested in partnering with her on a spa business venture. Of course I said “Oh yeah, that’s a great idea!”
DBP: Why Downtown Brooklyn?
EK: We were attracted to Downtown Brooklyn’s vibe — it’s a mix of everybody! It feels very genuine to us, and we feel like we are getting in on the ground floor of something big.
DBP: What makes the experience at Sun & Sky Spa unique?
EK: In opening the business, I learned a lot about Eastern and Chinese cultures and traditions. I was amazed by it! One of mine and Cindy’s goals is to share that experience with our clients through our services and our design approach, while also bringing a little bit of our own story — it ultimately makes for a unique experience.
