Manrico, NYC

Two level luxury retail space for Italian cashmere flagship store at the corner of Madison and 73rd Street. The project inspired the use of traditional materials in a contemporary way: an antique mercury mirror back wall edged in polished chrome; striated marble columns and floors; a peek-through glass floor panel to the Cashmere Cellar below; and black leather accents including a leather clad cash register.  In addition to stylish contemporary clothing for men and women, the Manrico store offers signature cashmere sheets and bedding and a brand new line of cashmere furniture, another Manrico / Ionescu collaboration using original Art Deco pieces upholstered in cashmere.
