Hardwood flooring company Havwoods International opened a showroom in New York City. Located in the Flatiron District, this is the first showroom of the company in the US.
Founded in Great Britain over 40 years ago, Havwoods crafts wood flooring and wall cladding for the commercial, hospitality, retail and residential markets. Havwoods holds over 200 wood flooring products in stock and showrooms in London, Berlin, Sydney, Rome, Melbourne, and now New York City and Maryland. Some of their clients include: Nando’s, De Beers Jewelry, The White Company, Superdry, Ted Baker, Aston Martin, Ritz Carlton and Hilton.
Brinkworth, a London-based architecture and interior design firm, designed the New York showroom. The single-story showroom has long presentation tables topped with a curated selection of timber samples, all set within black steel frames. The tables offer wide, slender display drawers beneath, clad in brushed brass, which present the Havwoods selection of styles and finishes. A space at the end of one table is available for customers to view the timbers under controlled light settings that imitate various interior lighting scenarios. Here, they can also create ad hoc sample boards to combine the timbers with other materials and finishes.
The showroom is located on 155 West 18th Street and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00AM - 5:00PM.
Allan Singh is the general manager of the Havwoods North American head office.
