Julia Chappell, Nicole Calas Lavin

The Design Center showrooms have been busy this past summer! Fine Design and NeoCon brought in names like Ian Schrager, Phillip Gorrivan, Roger Thomas and Gary Lee who packed the house for his residential keynote. On the heels of that successful show, both the ROMO and RODOLPH showrooms burst onto the 6th floor scene with Grand Opening parties. Larry Laslo unveiled his fourth upholstery collection for Robert Allen and the Sample Sale Suite moved to a beautiful new location in Suite 1625. Stop by today and check out product priced to move and don’t forget to mark your calendar for the annual Sample Sale, fast approaching just after Labor Day, see below for more information. Also, for an office away from the office enjoy amenities of the Member’s Lounge temporarily located in suite 1623.

Perhaps the biggest news of the summer is the upcoming Design Center relaunch where your favorite residential showrooms from floors 17 and 18 will be moving to a newly renovated, modernized home on the 14th floor! We are so excited to present you with a refined place to shop for your clients. For the most current updates follow our blog or like us on Facebook.
