From tile and fabric to windows and doors, check out these new launches.
Celebrating 100 years in business, Interstate + Lakeland is still going strong, maintaining six lumber yards, three window and door design centers and a custom millwork facility. The storied company’s latest addition is a new design showroom in Westport. Situated a few buildings away from the company’s existing lumberyard, the state-of-the-art, two-story, 11,000-square-foot space is a haven for architects, designers, builders and homeowners looking for luxury building products, including windows, doors, architectural hardware and millwork.
Award-winning outdoor furniture brand Brown Jordan recently opened a 6,600-square-foot flagship showroom in the New York Design Center where visitors can explore collections by legendary design collaborators like Walter Lamb, Richard Frinier, John Caldwell, Ann Marie Vering and Toan Nguyen. “With the opening of our new showroom at the New York Design Center, Brown Jordan officially plants a flag firmly into the epicenter of the design industry,” says Brown Jordan CEO Gene Moriarty. “This marks the beginning of Brown Jordan’s biggest and brightest chapter in our almost 80-year history. We’re not only offering never-before seen exclusive interpretations of our iconic designs, but over the next several months, we will begin rolling out multiple new collection introductions and expanding our list of best-in-class design partners.”
Sister Parish’s beloved textile and wallpaper patterns are now available at the brand’s first brick-and-mortar location. The Sister Parish shop, in historic Litchfield, was designed by Creative Director and great-granddaughter of Sister Parish, Eliza Harris, to capture the brand’s heritage, paying homage to Sister’s legacy. “My mother and I have both made Connecticut our home and have found Litchfield to not only be a stunning historic town, but also a burgeoning design destination with a very welcoming community,” says Harris. “We are thrilled to introduce the community to Sister’s legacy and hope the new space will inspire not only local artisans, but design enthusiasts and professional designers to add a little bit of Sister Parish whimsy to their lives.”
Artistic Tile launched its third collaboration with interior designer and recent CTC&G IDA judge Alison Rose. Fascinated by elemental shapes to create sophisticated patterns, Rose created the circular pattern of Sfera. “I am very inspired by modularity, and the way things are constructed,” says Rose. “This has been a thread through all facets of my practice and has most recently led me on an exploration of cells as the smallest basic units of life. Just as living cells are composed of three main parts, the elements of Sfera are arranged in triplets. The circles intersect lives.”
