Century Furniture: "New York City Style"

Next stop on our tour across the country of the Century Furniture showrooms - New York City.

One of our biggest challenges in the showrooms is how to show the vast and diverse line of products within a limited amount of space. Here in New York, the showroom is just over 5,600 square feet, so there's no way we can show everything. Instead what we do is use the showroom to spotlight new products, our designer introductions and create displays that speak towards the newest in fashion and design trends.

Since we sell everything off the floor at anytime in all our showrooms (hello, immediate gratification) it gives us the chance to continually change the product mix and displays!

And so here's just a taste of the latest, exciting installations we have here in New York .....


(The showroom is located at 200 Lexington Avenue, also called the New York Design Center. )



(This is the view from outside the showroom looking over the atrium and into our windows. You can see in the background a special installation by Juan Montoya ... more on that to come in future blogs.)


(The front entrance features an installation of the newest Oscar de la Renta products. Tres chic!)



(I just die for this little tufted chair and the leopard spotted Tibetan rug by Elson for Oscar de la Renta.)



(More of the Elson for Oscar de la Renta rugs.)



(A beautiful, canopy bed dressed with Dransfield & Ross hand-painted bedding. J'adore!!)


(A pretty, Swedish bedside chest.)



(Looking into the "Garden Room".)


(Two Andalusia Royal Lounge outdoor chairs flank a blue & white floor vase.)


(A Punta Cana Lounge Chair looks terrific paired with blue & white vase and ikat pillows.)


(How great does this Tribeca chest look when paired with pink and crystal accents?!)

(Walking further into the showroom: a mirrored chest and the decorative back of the Venetian sofa.)


(An upholstered bed done in a crewel from Textures Silk dressed with Dransfield and Ross bedding and decorative pillows.)


(A custom table! We took our New Traditional bunching cocktail added an antique mirror top and finished it in a cerulean blue. It was done to match Benjamin & Moore's Galapogos Turquoise #2057-20. We can color match any paint selection and most wood stains.)

(A Wellington Court china cabinet custom finished in "Cream" high-sheen paint with an Oscar de la Renta Shell Bench.)

(Just a little glamour - delft velvet, ostrich feathers and the Omni Mirrored Chest.)


(A modern sectional in oatmeal-colored ultrasuede.)

(The Omni dining table with Milan dining chairs.)

(I love this cocktail ottoman with removable mirrored tray. It would work equally as well at the foot of a bed.)

(The designer work station.)

(Some pieces from our Grand Tour collection.)

(Everyone loves these "Wings", wooden relics which stand almost 7' high.)

(Same goes for this crystal bowl of bejeweled shells.)

(A Tuscan feeling roomset.)

(More "old world" style: Venetian mirrors, fossilized shells and suzani pillows.)

(Our Barcelona carved console.)

(The back of the showroom - great scale and design for a NYC apartment!)
