In autumn 2012, Andreu World opened its first showroom in the Big Apple. The new shop is located in the iconic New York Design Center building, one of the city’s most high-profile centres devoted to interior design. This houses 100 showrooms of leading, international interior design and decoration companies, which range from providing domestic and contract furniture to such products as home fabrics, flooring and kitchen and bathroom fittings.
The showroom is a lively venue dedicated to communicating Andreu World’s brand image, while offering a space where visitors can familiarise themselves with new products and designs by such well-known creatives as Patricia Urquiola, Piergiorgio Cazzaniga and Lievore Altherr Molina. New seating and table collections for the home as well for offices, the contract market and outdoor spaces can all be admired in the showroom. The store is divided into display areas with different arrangements of objects for which backlit boxes have been used to indicate the different kinds of environment each type of piece is suited to.
Andreu World’s New York store is this Spanish firm’s second showroom in the US. It joins another that opened in Chicago’s iconic Merchandise Mart building in 2006. What’s more, the company has two other, permanent mono-brand shops in Cologne and Valencia and a concession in a flagship store in Toronto, which also opened in 2012.
Andreu World currently exports 60 per cent of its goods and boasts a distribution network spread across the entire world. New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Japan, Mexico, Argentina and the US are just some of the countries where Andreu World has a strong presence.
