Devon&Devon continues to pursue its
expansion in the USA. After Chicago and Nashville, the high-end bathroom design label launches a new store in the city of Naples, Florida. The opening of the 100 sq.m showroom at 950 1st Ave. North marks not only an important step in the brand’s retail expansion strategy but also consolidation of its major partnership with Francois&Co.
According to Gianni Tanini, Devon&Devon CEO: “I am extremely satisfied with our cooperation with Francois&Co, the partner with whom we have opened stores in North America, a market we consider crucial in the long/medium term. On this point—continues Tanini – I can reveal that our next store will be inaugurated in Atlanta by the end of 2017”.
Patrick Pepin, Francois & Co. CEO: “Through our cooperation with our partners Devon&Devon and Walker Zanger, we have united three of the most representative brands on the high-end interior decoration market in a single, large, elegant and exclusive space. The result is a sophisticated combination of the classical, typically Italian inspiration of Devon&Devon, the French style of Fracois&Co and the distinctive New York design proposed by Walker Zanger”.
Encompassing influences of both the Belle Epoque and the American Jazz Age, the space dedicated to Devon&Devon, designed by Art Director Paola Tanini, effectively conveys the classical yet contemporary fascination of the brand, showcasing the complete, coordinated concept of the collections in an elegant, refined environment. Iconic items are interspersed with new creations, while pale colours alternate with bolder shades, with also an eye on traditional black&white.
