Christopher Guy opens NY showroom and design lab

Christopher Guy has opened a new 20,000-sq.-ft. flagship showroom in the New York Design Center, the companyCGNY showroom, reception announced. The showroom, located on the penthouse floor of the NYDC, presents the brand's latest collections in three different lifestyle suites. Among these collections is the newly expanded Mademoiselle collection which debuted at the Spring 2013 High Point Market.

CEO and founder Christopher Guy Harrison designed the showroom's interior, which includes a 225-foot long furniture runway, cove ceilings, state of the art lighting, 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," he said. 

The showroom features the new state-of-the-art fully functional Christopher Guy Design Lab, created as "an ideal working environment" for interior CG design labdesigners. Using advanced software and touch screen display, designers will be able to apply fabric and finishes to their furnishing pieces and create entire projects within one working environment, according to the company. 

Following the New York Showroom opening, Christopher Guy will launch a new website. Developed in-house over the past 18 months the site features iBuild software, a collection of interactive applications -- iWall, iRoom and iPlan Pro - that lets users view items side by side as hand-drawings within a room setting.
