After many months of searching for just the right premises, Havwoods continues New World expansion with a 3,000-square-foot-plus showroom in the Chelsea district of New York City.
The Brinkworth designed space is in keeping with showrooms in London, Berlin and Sydney, and aims to take the pain out of selecting a wood floor for both specifiers and consumers with ample information and signposting for those who prefer to browse at their own pace. Large-screen video monitors feature installations from around the globe; a quiet space enables Havwoods representatives to meet privately with customers to thrash out details, and the consultation room is equipped with video conferencing capabilities for remote participation.
The lively launch event was a Brit-themed affair. Unfortunately highway restrictions had put an end to plans to take the iconic, beautifully renovated, Havwoods’ 1960s classic London bus; instead a vintage telephone box stood guard outside at the entrance and a red carpet greeted the invitation-only guest list.
For visitors to New York, the Havwoods showroom can be found at 155 West 18th Street and is open Monday – Friday, 8.00am – 5.00pm.
