New Designer Showroom Opens Upper East Side, NYC April 2017

New York, United States

By Appointment Visits For Private Clients & Design Professionals

New York, United States, 2017-04-05 -

Displaying recent, custom works created by global designers Jacques Jarrige, Eric Schmitt, Tinatin Kilaberidze, Adrien de Melo, Anasthasia Millot, Kimille Taylor, and Cristina Salusti, Valerie Goodman Gallery is proud to announce the expansion into a two thousand square foot design showroom, located on Manhattan's Upper East Side in New York this April 2017. 

Since the Valerie Goodman Gallery opened in 2010, its relatively small quarters had kept their original, slightly improvised flair.

Refined and highly individualistic pieces on display were to triumph over the rather basic setting of the  gallery’s informal esthetic, which reflected a young enterprise, devoted to introducing European artists and designers who were then almost entirely unknown in the New York design world.

Now that these talents have begun to receive much notice on this side of the Atlantic, Valerie Goodman as design curator is proud to give them a more sumptuous home in the United States.


One important element in this expansion was Valerie Goodman’s very personal experience of designing her upstate home in collaboration with Jacques Jarrige while he remained in Paris.

This joint domestic and overseas design project made both partners fluent in spatial exploration and architectural negotiation via Skype, a skill they then applied to designing the new Upper East Side showroom.

Jarrige suggested injecting a bit of drama to the act of entering the more or less square space: he designed a rectangular tunnel with a low ceiling. Only after passing through it, the large open room is revealed.

Under his keen direction, two almost identically sized plywood boxes were built to house the gallery’s office and storage spaces, further structuring the simple room.  

Plywood a signature design material Jacques Jarrige employs for furniture as well as sculpture, and its lively, moiré-like surface lends texture to the new gallery’s bright, white expanse, and beautiful vignettes for living.
