The New York Design Center welcomes a new class of luxe showrooms to its halls this season.
Delbert-Arthur’s NYDC showroom features designs by top French, American and Korean talents.
Delbert-Arthur’s newly unveiled NYDC space spotlights the best of the brand’s offerings. “Delbert-Arthur showrooms operate as a rotating gallery, so all pieces that are showcased on the floor may be available for purchase at times,” founder Delbert Arthur says. He highlights a small lineup of artists, including Garnier & Linker’s lighting pieces, which are made of alabaster and unique solid gold glass—something Arthur says deserves to be experienced in person. He adds, “Guests should expect to visit a calm and open space, showcasing impeccable design by a handful of top French, American and Korean talent of today.”200 Lexington Ave., Ste. 423 –CK
THE SILVER PEACOCK
Fine tabletop, linens and accessories deserve to be explored and selected in person, and New Yorkers can do just that at The Silver Peacock’s NYDC jewel box showroom. The space showcases handfinished sterling silver from France’s oldest continuously operating silversmith, handmade bath accessories offered in 20 finishes, and bed and table linens from an atelier just outside of Lake Como. “All of our products are made by hand by the finest European craftspeople and artisans from the most luxurious natural materials,” owner Charlie Akwa says. “This kind of craftsmanship requires sensory participation. It’s very difficult to appreciate the products without touching and seeing them.” 200 Lexington Ave., Ste. 418 –CK
