Early this month, the London and Paris-based Carpenters Workshop Gallery opened the doors to its first-ever US location, right in the heart of New York City.
Childhood friends Julien Lombrail and Loic Le Gaillard, who founded the pioneering art and design gallery in London’s Chelsea neighborhood in 2006, chose a two-floor space in the old Takashimaya building on 5th Avenue—which had been unoccupied for five years prior. In this case, it was truly worth the wait.
With its soaring, 35-foot ceilings, light-flooded windows, and industrial loft feel, the penthouse is the ideal atmosphere and backdrop for housing art and furnishings by established and emerging names like Rick Owens, Atelier Van Lieshout, Random International, Vincente de Cotiis, and more. Don’t miss Nacho Carbonell’s ethereal ‘Blue Cocoon Concrete Base’ lamp, Studio Drift’s whimsical ‘Flylight’ chandelier, and Studio Job’s incredibly ornate ‘Big Ben (Aftermath)’ clock.
Eager to see them first-hand? The gallery is open to clients (by appointment) and private events.
