In New York City !!

21 04 2009

I have learned to love flying in airplanes.  I just decided, well, I’ve got to do it and c’est la vie.  That mental adjustment has really made a difference and allowed me to actually enjoy trips.     I just returned from New York City and the grand opening celebration of the new Edward Ferrell Showroom in the D&D Building. Edward Ferrell – Lewis Mittman is one of the few furniture collections still manufactured in the US – in High Point, North Carolina.  Take a look at  We are truly blessed to have representation in both Edward Ferrell Showroom and the Michael Tavano Showroom in New York City After several years of not being able to find a home, we now have two spectacular homes.    If there were an award for the very best fabric presentations in a showroom in the USA, Michael Tavano’s presentation of our fabrics would be a leading contender. I’ll get some photos to post on this site.  Michael has turned each one of our fabrics into a mock dress, with the fabric labels suspended by a ring of pearls at the “neck” and a belt that looks like a Hermes belt. Lovely, elegant and very entertaining at the same time.


At the Edward Ferrell opening I was able to meet the eco-designer, Cheryl Terrace; and the  owner designers of the Carol Gratale Collection (that would be Carol) and  Berman Rosetti Furniture (Nick Berman and Gennaro Rosetti) – which are also all manufactured in the US.   We’re honored and lucky to be shown alongside. 


It’s quite unusual for a fabric collection to be carried by two separate and prestigious showrooms; and we thank both showrooms for their willingness to break the mold.


Another highlight of my trip was searching fro a restaurant in the rain with Julie DuBrow, our indefatigable PR woman; and Michael Ekstract, the creator of Verdant magazine.  After waiting a spell for a table at Sofrito, the decided to hit the street again because we were more in the mood for a quiet talk than a riotous band.  We wandered and ended up in a place that I’m not sure was on Michael’s radar, but which was delightful Indian food on West. 52nd Street.
