Arper, the Italian design brand opened a showroom in Manhattan this past November in Soho.
Founded in 1989 in Italy, the 4,000 square foot, loft-style space is located at 476 Broadway near other leading design brands - and will be their US headquarters.
Their products range from home and office to commercial use.
"North America is becoming increasingly important for our company as we continue to develop our operations here...We want the New York City space to not only show our furniture, but to also serve as a place for Arper to collaborate with designers surrounded by comfort and beauty" said Claudio Feltrin, owner and CEO of Arper.
The trend of high-end design continues to grow within North America, and brands like Arper wants to be a part of it.
Solveig Fernlund, a New York-based architect, was responsible for the architecture and interior design.
In addition, Lievore Altherr Molina, a Barcelona-based studio and long-term Arper collaborator, served as creative director in charge of furniture displays.
In addition to the Manhattan store, the company has opened a new operational hub in High Point, North Carolina, to centralise its manufacturing and logistics for North America.
The company already has one US showroom, in Chicago's Merchandise Mart building, which it opened in June 2013.
