NEW YORK--Tufenkian Artisan Carpets will open its flagship showroom for Europe this September, in London's Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour.
Scheduled to open on Sept. 25, one day before Decorex International begins, the showroom will be run by John Erkelens, the company's European sales director. Located in Unit 315 in the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour, the showroom will be the company's second one in Europe. It also has one in Hamburg, Germany.
"London has become a very important market for us with its designers serving clients from all over the world while shopping for product in the local market," said James Tufenkian, owner and chief executive officer of Tufenkian. "And, after our first successful wave of showroom openings in North America in the recent years, we are now positioned to begin our second wave of expansion of Tufenkian showrooms internationally."
