Christopher Guy Opens New Showroom in the New York Design Center

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - June 07, 2013) - Christopher Guy, world renowned furniture designer and creator of the world's most fabulous lifestyles, has opened a new flagship showroom in the iconic and historic New York Design Center (NYDC). The fabulous 20,000 square foot showroom will bring the Christopher Guy experience to New York City and will be a real showcase of style, elegance and excitement.

The Christopher Guy showroom which is located on the penthouse floor of the NYDC will strengthen the brand's offering to designers and architects in one of the world's largest metropolitan areas. The showroom will showcase Christopher Guy's latest collections within an exquisite environment that includes three suites, each portraying varying lifestyles. Among these collections is the newly expanded Mademoiselle Collection which debuted at the Spring 2013 High Point Market. Mademoiselle is a lifestyle collection that evokes sumptuous and flirtatious elegance, it teases with its subtle, coy forms and allures you in to a prestigious world as if casting a spell on the room. While each piece works individually there is a harmonious design dialogue of glamour throughout.

The interior design of the New York showroom has been created by Christopher Guy Harrison, award-winning internationally renowned designer, CEO and founder of the Christopher Guy brand. Guests will be amazed by the 225 foot long furniture runway which showcases a number of pieces and features beautiful cove ceilings, state of the art lighting, fantastically scaled reeded columns, seamless high polish white glass floors and a chained glass wall. "It's simply fabulous and an honor to be able to add the CG initials to NY with the launch of CGNY, a perfect combination, in a perfect design building, the New York Design Center," said Christopher. "This marks the 6th major international showroom opening by Christopher Guy over the past year, and with over 20,000sq.ft, it is also the largest." 

The showroom features the state-of-the-art fully functional Christopher Guy Design Lab, created as an ideal working environment for interior designers allowing many capabilities to complete entire design projects. Using advanced software and touch screen display, designers will be able to apply fabric and finishes to their desired furnishing pieces. The Design Lab provides many options to designers and allows them to create their entire project within one working environment.

Following the New York Showroom opening, Christopher Guy is set to launch its cutting edge new website. Developed in-house over the past 18 months, the iBuild software feature is a collection of interactive applications: iWall, iRoom and iPlan Pro, for interior designing. It allows users to view their selection of CG items side by side as hand-drawings within a room setting. With iWall, iRoom and iPlan Pro, users will see their projects home to life, in a way never experienced before. These tools are ideal for interior designers and homeowners, and set to inspire the way they interact with the website, adding their personal creativity to a Christopher Guy layout.

The opening of the New York showroom follows the successful release of the expanded Mademoiselle Collection at the Spring 2013 High Point Market and opening of the Christopher Guy Las Vegas showroom at the Las Vegas Design Center.

INTERNATIONAL INSPIRATION

Christopher Guy Harrison, the creator and CEO of the Christopher Guy brand, was born in Britain, raised in Spain and France, and currently resides between Singapore, London, Los Angeles and New York. His international background allows him to draw on inspiration from everything he experiences around him, as well as contributing to his ability to incorporate period elements and transform them into updated timeless designs graced with elegance and sophistication.

WORLDWIDE ACCLAIM

Defined by the singular design philosophy of "A Contemporary Mood with Classic Values," Christopher Guy furnishings have garnered worldwide acclaim. Christopher Guy's prestigious listing of accomplished projects includes the Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas and Macau, the prominent Phoenix Resort in Sanya, China and the Ritz Carlton, Tokyo, to mention just a few. His furnishings have become stars in their own right in films such as "Casino Royale," "The Devil Wears Prada," and the "Hangover."

Christopher's eye for detail, passion for design and ability to capture and reflect a distinctively classic yet contemporary mood has ensured the Christopher Guy name is at the forefront of luxury furnishings design around the world. Christopher Guy continues to grow via stand-alone stores in West Hollywood, Chicago, Verona, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, to name a few, and has established growth strategies on every continent with the latest growth targeting the Middle Eastern Market.

In June 2011, Christopher Guy took Europe's center stage at London's Harrods with a magnificent Christopher Guy showroom on its renowned furniture floor. This stage was again compelling as Christopher Guy stole the show during the latest Decorex exhibition in London. Designed specifically for Decorex 2012, Christopher Guy created a sculptural centerpiece fondly titled, "CG's Beacon of Craftsmanship." Capturing the attention of all visitors, the staggering 8 meter high tower comprised of 270 individual pieces of hand-carved CG designs was mounted in a carefully orchestrated ad hoc manner and visible from every angle of the vast Decorex marquee.

Later this year, Singapore, the business hub of Asia, will embrace the opening of a center piece Christopher Guy showroom, situated in one of Singapore's most prominent locations overlooking the city-state's majestic and inspiring skyline, a movie of which can be seen on the Christopher Guy website.

The Christopher Guy New York showroom, welcoming an international and domestic clientele, is located at New York Design Center 200 Lexington Avenue Penthouse Suite - Level Nº16 New York, NY 10016.
