The Studio occupies a stunning space at the corner of 57th Street and 3rd Avenue, with sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal our most innovative display yet of modern design. Occupying three floors, it’s the largest Studio in New York and among the largest of all. The main attraction is The Apartment, a 900-square-foot glass-encased room dramatically suspended high above the entrance and accessible by footbridge. It aims to present the ultimate New York City apartment furnished in a modern way. We hope you’ll walk inside and say, “I could live here!” As in The Apartment, items throughout the Studio are arranged in “rooms” and “houses” to help you envision how they might fit in your home. The Dining Test Lab has 50 iconic dining chairs available for test drives, and 25 full-room vignettes show pieces in context. Other eye-catching features include the pendant Light Cloud, Design Library Swatch Wall of 500 upholstery tiles and Media Wall, as well as broad selections of outdoor, café and office solutions. The Studio is just blocks from MoMA and steps away from the D&D and A&D buildings. Proprietor Coleman Johnson oversees the Studio with his friendly and knowledgeable sales associates.
