Italian Furniture Designer Rimadesio Opening 6K SF NoMad Showroom
Italian furniture designer Rimadesio plans to open a 6,204-square-foot showroom in NoMad, Commercial Observer has learned.
The furniture company signed a long-term lease for a two-level space at 102 Madison Avenue between West 29th and West 30th streets, according to landlord brokers Colliers International. A spokesperson for Colliers declined to provide the terms of the deal.
Rimadesio’s 102 Madison space will serve as a showroom, host its operations staff, and be the brand’s flagship location in the city, according to Colliers. It’s unclear when Rimadesio plans to open the space.
The company first opened a Manhattan showroom inside DOM Interiors — which hosts several different furniture brands’ showrooms — at 66 Crosby Street in 2016.
Colliers’ Tom Citron, Robin Dinkin and David Green represented the landlord, A. Ruth & Sons Real Estate, in the deal. Neil Seth, Kenji Ota, Kevin To and Diego Rodino di Miglione of Cushman & Wakefield handled it for the tenant. A C&W spokesperson declined to comment.
“As the pandemic has forced us to spend more time at home than ever, people have been investing in upgrading their home offices and personal spaces, which has been great for high-end furniture makers,” Dinkin said in a statement. “NoMad has become a hub for these types of tenants in Manhattan and we’re glad we were able to secure a long-term commitment for A. Ruth & Sons.”
Rimadesio will join furniture retailer Christian Liaigre in the 12-story 102 Madison.
