Design icon Charles Eames said it best. “The role of the designer is that of a good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” At the center of every successful design project are carefully curated furnishings that express the unique voice of the client. When sourcing in New York, the showrooms of Manhattan’s A&D Building offer one-stop shopping for one-of-a-kind resources.
The Walking Bear side table by Moss & Lam for Holly Hunt inhabits a world between art and design. The sculptural table is rendered in smooth plaster and Portland cement and comes in white or black. Another treasure waiting to be sourced by the discerning designer is Le Club chair from Poliform. Designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, Le Club chair reinterprets the traditional club chair with a lighter, more contemporary profile.
In the market for flooring? Form meets function in the Carlisle Wide Plank Floors showroom. The Earthen collection includes Regur, a dramatic flooring option with hints of black, gray and brown reminiscent of flowing lava. When shopping for carpets, Edward Fields offers a large selection of luxury options. The Magnetic collection is influenced by the 1970s, a decade of social change and bold experimentation in fashion, abstract design, and popular culture.
The A&D Building also offers a wide and sophisticated blend of kitchen and bath products. Fantini’s I Balocchi faucet collection comes in bright, candy colors as well as matte white and black. The 400-Series Flex Induction cooktop by Gaggenau boasts integrated ventilation. From the Jazz Club collection at Artistic Tile (part of the Made in America line) to Miele’s high performance G5000 series dishwashers that achieve perfect results in 58 minutes, the A&D showrooms are a valuable resource where designers can introduce clients to some of New York’s top design resources.
