Window shoppers and shopaholics alike will appreciate autumn’s lineup of newly opened and recently refurbished showrooms, from a new Tom Dixon arrival and a Martin Patrick Evan move to a new look for John Rosselli.
Tom Dixon has opened a New York store in SoHo (243 Centre St.), carrying the brand’s full lighting, furniture and accessories collection. Says Tom Dixon, “America has truly been the land of opportunity for us over the last couple of years—so we wanted to have a direct connection with the people that enjoy our work. It was important to have a space at street level with an open door where everybody can come in and see our fresh ideas at first hand. I hope this will be the departure point of many great adventures in the New World.”
Martin Patrick Evan has moved, to Suite 507 at the D&D Building, where visitors can explore luxury carpet and rug collections, including hand-tufted, hand-knotted, wovens, outdoors, leathers and hides, broadloom and more.
The John Rosselli showroom at the D&D Building received a serious makeover recently, with a reimagined layout that allows for the presentation of its newest lines: Ankasa, Mourne Irish Linen, David Iatesta, Mary McDonald for Chaddock, and Ironware International. John Rosselli is the only showroom in New York City that showcases Mary McDonald’s furniture line for Chaddock.
Zazen Bear, a new store dedicated to Zen-inspired home decor and jewelry, opened its doors in SoHo. The 2,400-square-foot retail space was designed by Italian architect Pierpaolo Martiradonna of Sinfonia Group. The space is across two floors connected by an open staircase and a live-plant vertical garden.
Hermès-owned cristallerie Saint-Louis opened its first U.S. shop-in-shop in the Miami Design District, the third such shop in the world, after Paris and Hong Kong. The store offers products including tableware, barware, lighting, decorative pieces, collectibles and accessories.
