Holly Hunt Showroom

At Holly Hunt, BBB has created an elegant flagship showroom that complements the rich materiality and modern detailing of the furniture on display.

BBB has transformed a former carpet showroom in New York City’s A&D Building into an exciting space to showcase the furniture, lighting and textile collections of furniture representative and designer, Holly Hunt. The space provides a street-level presence and consists of ground floor, mezzanine, and second floor display areas, as well as a storage cellar. A large vestibule orients the visitor to the showroom, which is comprised of a progression of several “rooms” of varying proportions from intimate to grand. A view down the main space encompasses a floating concrete and glass stair, with a long skylight drawing the visitor in with natural light. On the exterior, a new façade complements the dynamic interior and creates a simple but monumental presence on the street that consists of an expansive curtain wall and Spanish limestone. One challenge of the design was to meld the grandness of a double-height entrance with an intimate interior more appropriately scaled for residential furniture.
