The Future Perfect Showroom, New York
Posted on May 19 2018
Visiting one of New York's most talked about furniture showrooms, The Futre Perfect on Great Jones Street.
Having the opportunity to talk to many design lovers during my visit to New York, a showroom kept on popping up in conversations time and time again; 'The Future Perfect'. The furniture designs and art showcased within this showroom at 55 Great Jones Street are just as mysterious and intreguing as its name suggests, showcasing works from a collection of talented designers, from Autoban and Dimore Studio to Flos and Veronese. From the second visitors walk in to this space, it is clear to see why so many people have been talking about it.
Within a relitively compact space, exciting designs are styled and displayed within 'sub showrooms', showcasing the quirky, exciting and dramatic. Everything feels as if it belongs, working harmoniously with one another, though, strong enough in design for each product to stand by itself. At first glance, I had to question if everything on display belonged to one brand due to the incredible presence but it was all down to talented selection and a fantastic relationship between designers.
Lighting designs from Veronese immediately caught the eye with their striking composition of traditional an contemporary coloured glass detailing. It was the Waste Tile Cabinet designed by Piet Hein Eek, however that won my heart. Its unique construction uses traditionall wood-working techniques, crafetd from recycled wood with a high gloss finish for exceptional character that ay room with absorb. Other designs of note that can be seen in the photography of the showroom are the charming 'Vase Heads' created by Cathrine Raben Davidsen, 'Croc' crafted by Floris Wubben, resemboling the movement of these vericious reptiles within the water and finally the 'Construction Cabinet' designed by Paul Heijnen, another impressive storage design that transorms in form upon every movement made.
With showrooms located in New York, San Francisco and recently in Los Angeles, it has been amazing to witness the response from this exciting brand as it introduces design lovers to wonderful and luxurious designs. Founded by David Alhadeff back in 2003, The Future Perfect is taking over America and the rest of the world, one step at a time and I will have great pleasure in watching it do so.
