Big-name brands are opening the doors to their newest showrooms this season.
Brown Jordan’s sleek outdoor offerings are perfect for spaces near and far.
Time to refresh the patio? Look no further: Brown Jordan, the first company to exclusively sell outdoor furniture, will open a showroom this September at the New York Design Center. This 6,600-square-foot space will showcase some of the brand’s most popular designs, such as the Oscar and Moto collections, designed by Ann Marie Vering, and the H line by Toan Nguyen. Clients can also explore long-tenured collections, such as designs by Walter Lamb and Richard Frinier.
“The new showroom marks the beginning of Brown Jordan’s next chapter and will celebrate the brand’s long history of iconic, award-winning design innovation,” says Gene Moriarty, Brown Jordan president and CEO. “We’re excited to put a new flag in the ground in New York City and further build our incredible partnerships with the architecture and design community.” 200 Lexington Ave.
Brooklyn-based, minority- and woman-owned brand REDU holds sustainability and reusability as its core values. The company, with a chic new showroom on Second Avenue, rescues discarded materials from local manufacturers and builders to reimagine them into new and unique styles. “We have rescued approximately 28 million pounds of materials since our inception, which has saved the city an incredible amount of money,” says Amber Lasciak, REDU’s founder. The brand also launched a new sustainable furniture line —its first furniture made from scratch—featuring a selection of benches, tables and couches.
Inside REDU’s new space
The interactive showroom offers a space to partake in REDU’s workshop, in which audiences can participate in the process of fabrication, upholstery and finishing touches. A gallery show was also launched in coordination with the showroom debut, Re-B(earth): The Near Death Experience of Trash, through which Lasciak challenges guests to see trash through a novel lens. “Where other people see trash, we see potential,” says Lasciak. “Waste is a mentality.” 1285 Second Ave.
