Fiandre Celebrates Grand Opening

Fiandre celebrated the grand opening of their first New York City showroom with over 250 guests. The event was co-hosted by Fiandre CEO Federica Minozzi and Architectural Digest’s Sam Cochran. Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres catered by Sant Ambroeus, including a live cooking demo of pink ravioli with Sicilian pistachios and citrus sauce on the porcelain cooktop.

Minozzi and Leonardo Pesce of Fiandre welcomed interior designers, architects, media and design industry influencers. Notable guests included Architectural Digest's Maddie O'Malley and Benjamin Reynaert, Nico Tortorella and Bethany Meyers, Brian Sawyer and Matt McKay, Pilar Viladas, Robert Stilin, Rachel Judlowe, Michael Arad, Mieke ten Have, Cristina Grajales, Joe Lucas, Rebecca Bond, Zak Profera, Peti Lau, T.R. Pescod, Jonny Cross, Greg Dufner and Daniel Heighes Wismer.

A number of entertaining activities kept the party going for over four hours, including a lively DJ/violin performance by Gigi Alexander, fashion sketches by Deanna First, and an interactive photo booth with a gorgeous flower wall backdrop created by B. Floral with white and violet orchids mimicking the marble veining in Fiandre’s popular marble look offerings. 

The 4,000 square foot showroom showcases the premium Italian porcelain and ceramic collections in real life home settings, and was designed in cooperation with Gianni Intili and Giovanna Intili of GI Design Studio. Brands on display in the showroom include Fiandre, Iris Ceramica, Diesel Living, Ariostea and Sapienstone.
