Orior has opened its TriBeCa showroom, in conjunction with the 2019 NYCxDesign. The showroom houses Orior icons alongside the brand's latest pieces of furniture, including new sofas, chairs, credenzas, and tables.
"We're thrilled to be opening our first standalone showroom in New York," commented Ciaran McGuigan, Orior's Creative Director. "After forty years of creating contemporary and considered design, we're delighted to be able to give New Yorkers the opportunity to experience our work, collaborative process, and creative vision first hand. Further to this, we couldn't think of a better time to open our doors than NYCxDesign as this intersection of creativity and craftsmanship that is at the core of Orior's ethos will be celebrated throughout the city."
On offer in the TriBeCa showroom will be twenty-two works, a mix of Orior classics, all designed by Brian McGuigan, and new designs by the studio debuting this month, each with options on size and finish. Originals include The Pop Chair, comprised of a deep, comfortable seat in leather or velvet and metal swivel leg; The Atlanta Sofa, upholstered in eye-catching Pierre Frey velvet; The Florence Sofa, the brand's take on the Chesterfield, with Orior leather; The Andre Chair, featuring solid brass legs with soft, Sixties and Seventies-inspired curves; The Canyon Sofa, a clean, modular piece that was one of Brian McGuigan's first designs; The Lia Chair, inspired by the Danish classics that Rosie and Brian encountered in their youth and more.
Orior's latest pieces include The Hex Paravent, a wooden room divider offered in an individual pattern for each buyer; The Hemlock Console, rustic yet refined with the balance of marble and open grain wood; The Michael Sofa, which carries on the brand's affinity for velvet upholstery; The Mara Credenza, which marries marble, wood, leather and brass beautifully; The Bianca Chair, with a seat that cradles the whole body and legs uniquely engineered to underline the design; The Futurist Sofa, a statement piece with Orior leather in primary colors; The Nero Table, comprised of glossy wood rooted in an Irish green marble base and brass foot; The Bembo Credenza, wrapped in Orior leather and executed with the utmost attention to detail.
