NEW YORK-Seguso USA, one of the oldest Murano glass brands, has renewed its permanent showroom lease at Forty One Madison.
"We are redesigning the space to meet both the needs of our tableware and gift market buyers; at the same time, becoming more designer-friendly and creating a unique 'Murano Glass Destination' at Forty One Madison," said Pierpaolo Seguso, creative director. "Everything in glass is possible, but not everyone knows our capabilities now extend to lighting, furniture and custom work for both residential and commercial applications."
Pierpaolo Seguso is the 22nd generation of the glass making family dynasty that dates back over 600 years. The company's showroom at Forty One Madison is on the ninth floor.
"We are delighted to continue to be part of Seguso's expansion in the United States and their new showcase that will show the diversity of their products," said Laurie Burns, senior vice president, director, Forty One Madison. "Now, buyers and interior designers can see the entire Seguso line and its capabilities which include supplying some of the most prestigious hotels, boutiques and celebrity homes in the world."
Early this year, Seguso will launch a series of educational events for designers to introduce them to the company's custom capabilities, take a virtual tour of the manufacturing facilities in Murano and meet company principals.
