Havwoods Opens First U.S. Showroom
Hardwood flooring company Havwoods International has expanded operations into the U.S. with its first showroom in New York City. Located in the Flatiron District, the new showroom will accommodate the brand’s growing U.S.-based clientele while allowing the company to further expand its project portfolio in the North American market.
Founded in Great Britain more than 40 years ago, Havwoods offers wood flooring and wall cladding for the commercial, hospitality, retail, and residential markets. Havwoods holds over 200 wood flooring products in stock and showrooms in London, Berlin, Sydney, Rome, Melbourne and now New York City and Maryland. Some of their most notable and recent clients include: Nando’s, De Beers Jewelry, The White Company, Superdry, Ted Baker, Aston Martin, Ritz Carlton, and Hilton.
Brinkworth, a London-based architecture and interior design firm, conceived the design of the New York showroom. The single-story showroom provides long presentation tables topped with a curated selection of timber samples. The tables offer wide, slender display drawers beneath and a space at the end of one table for customers to view the timbers under controlled light settings that imitate various interior lighting scenarios. Here, they can also create ad hoc sample boards to combine the timbers with other materials and finishes.
“Brinkworth spent time understanding our requirements and then used their expertise to design a space which works better than we could have imagined,” said Allan Singh, general manager of Havwoods North American Head Office.
