Belgian-European architectural and design products are debuting on May 13 at NYCxDesign in a group founded by Manhattan distributor D’Apostrophe, along with partner brands Royal Botania, Delta Light and Renson. The collective, called Ernest, is located at 255 Fifth Avenue, and will also spotlight work from Bulo, Wildspirit, Pedrali, Limited Edition, 2tec2 and other brands; products include indoor and outdoor furnishings, lighting, commercial and residential natural air ventilation products, flooring and more.

D’Apostrophe president and Ernest co-founder Thierry Herbert says, “Through our strong brand partnerships, we have been able to offer a rich and distinctive collection of inspiring Belgian-European products. We wanted to build on that successful base and enhance it with a fresh new name and concept that is emblematic of our shared philosophy. Ernest, a traditional Flemish name, is a nod to our Belgian roots. By definition, the word earnest also embodies the collective’s core values, and spirit.”

The space is also open to hosting events. Learn more.
