Here in This House: The New York Design Center; A NYC Design Resource

Last week we revealed to you one of the trade secrets that interior designers use when coming up with inspiration and products for one of their projects: design centers. Design centers are located in major cities all across the world and many of them have services for non-trade professionals (like you and I). Touring these showrooms gives you many ideas and allows you to see different options available for all rooms of your home.

If you are lucky enough to live in the New York City area, there are three different design centers: the Decoration & Design Building, the New York Design Center and the Architects and Designers Building. Combined together, these centers have over 160 showrooms. A showroom is just like any other open-to-the-public “home” store you would see but it specifically carries only one manufacturer's product line(s). Think stores with only flooring or stores with only lights or stores with a variety of fabrics. Of course there are also showrooms that have entire rooms of furnishings and decor too.
