Luxe explores three new design-forward spaces from brands as stylish as their showrooms.
Denmark’s design-forward speaker company Bang & Olufsen tapped Tokyo-based Simplicity to create its new 2,200-square-foot flagship in SoHo (121 Spring St.). Blonde wood features almost exclusively throughout the various listening stations, resulting in Scandinavian minimalism crossed with New York’s monochrome industrialism. There’s also an enhanced listening room for experiencing new products like the Beosound Stage or the Beoplay E8 3rd Generation.
Uptown, the Jonathan Adler flagship (135 E. 65th St. and Lexington Ave.) encompasses 5,500 square feet of the furniture brand’s signature whimsy: funky lighting, curvaceous seating in bold colors, idiosyncratic ceramics, candles and pillows. The bi-level showroom features themed residential vignettes to provide inspiration and will roll out new merchandise before it lands in the brand’s eight other boutiques nationwide.
Temple Studio (51 E. 12th St.) is the hot newcomer for fabric, wallpaper and rug designs. Launched by Studio Four co-founder Kate Temple Reynolds, its airy 3,500-square-foot showroom in Greenwich Village artfully displays the works of the 19 designers it represents.
