Besides the obvious new showroom location and combining our offices to all be under one roof, there’s a lot of newness happening around us at 38 Wareham St. The magic that the team has built out of 10,000 sq ft is a sight to be seen, the many months of tinkering with the floor-plan to get everything exactly right paid off – with new frames from brands you love, like Eilersen’s Quickship Sofas are almost all on the floor, even more Ethnicraft, and side tables as far as the eye can see.
But you knew that new brands would be coming along in tow with this move, and we want to make sure you all have the low-down on what looks different.
Let’s get started on some introductions
We’ve loved Gubi for so long, and we’re beyond thrilled to announce we’ve become one of the select showrooms in New England to have their designs grace our floor. Found in 1967 in Denmark by husband and wife duo Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen, they balance championing contemporary designers with new visions with sourcing stellar product design from the past. They work some of our favorite designers like Gamfratesi, Space Copenhagen, and more.
It’s already online so if you can’t get to the showroom to shop, you won’t be missing out.
Some of our favorites:
Obviously, we love the icon that is the Beetle Chair, it also created a bit of a storm online recently after being featured in Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe. On the floor it’s in Dandy 303:
And the Bat High Back Lounge Chair adds a bit of intrigue, and we love a touch of moodiness even in our summer floor.
Ferm Living has been on our radar for a while, and our most recent trip to New York for Design Week solidified just how much we needed them on the new floor. We’re now the only Ferm Living showroom in Massachusetts and we can’t wait for you all to get to know them. Based in Copenhagen, they focus on fusing their Scandinavian mindset with artisans around the world to create authentic and functional design. They’re fun as much as they are chic, with a true talent for color.
Also, like Gubi, it’s already online and ready to shop.
Some of our favorites:
I cannot get over the Oval Pouf, particularly in concrete.
Also, the Distinct Side Table is one of the coolest side tables we carry.
And I can’t forget about the Ripple Champagne Saucers that all of us have been scooping up.
A choice Natalie favorite that is also from our Design Week adventures, this lighting and mirror collection hails from New York-based design studio, Ocrùm, inspired by the quiet observance of meaningful memories. The brand’s aesthetic direction takes cues from Creative Director Sean Zhang’s attention into detail and minimalist approach to living, combined with influences from Italian craftsmanship.
In-store we currently have the Dew + Drop Pendant, Dew + Drop Table Lamp, and the Orizon Mirror:
We featured Penn and Fairmount in our summer essentials guide a couple weeks back, but this glassware made in Pittsburgh by artist Jason Forock, completely transcends the season with organic shapes that are seemly impossible to do with glass. We have a selection of three colors in the Cinch Collection, as well as the Sway Pitcher which Forock makes by pulling hot glass one way and leading it in another.
Get this: we are the first retailer in the United States or Armadillo’s home country of Australia to be carrying this stunning collection (it used to be strictly reserved for trade), and boy, are we happy about it.
The collection contains four distinct rug ranges: the Egyptian Rugs are luxurious multi-toned Jute, the Paragon Rugs are a wool/cotton blend focusing on neutral hues and complex patterns, the Agra Rugs are single color wool/cotton with a deep-cut pile, and the Persian Rugs are wool/cotton with a hand-knotted weaving technique to create subtle patterns.
There’s only more to come – stay tuned for some before/after content from the build out and where we started from at square one.
