Mary Cifuentes, Ferguson's Director of Showrooms, Northeast Region, gives us an idea of what to expect at the company's new, massive Brooklyn showroom!
New York Spaces: We are so excited Ferguson decided to open a showroom in Brooklyn. What precipitated this decision?
Mary Cifuentes: There's no denying that Brooklyn is a rapidly growing design destination and the recent building boom of residential, hospitality, and commercial properties says it all. The vitality and vibrancy of this Brooklyn neighborhood makes it the perfect fit for Ferguson. This new showroom reflects our abiding commitment to serving the world's design capital. The space was carefully created to offer convenient access and inspiration for our clientele of architects, designers, builders, contractors as well as the residential population that's seeking the latest and finest in kitchen and bath.
New York Spaces: Tell us about the showroom. What kind of products are offered there?
Mary Cifuentes: The showroom features an extensive selection of state-of-the-art appliances, faucets and
fixtures, and lighting for the whole home. To spotlight the magnificent vignettes at the new showroom, we incorporated ELEMENT Merge—a glare-free LED light technology—into key spaces in the gallery so as to showcase the products with the most ideal lighting without any glare whatsoever.
New York Spaces: How many showrooms do you currently have in New York? How does this location differ in what it has to offer?
Mary Cifuentes: Ferguson has 11 total showrooms in the Metro New York area. Of the New York City locations, the Brooklyn showroom boasts the largest footprint and most extensive lighting display. Most people are surprised to see the vast selection of decorative lighting options we feature throughout the showroom.
New York Spaces: We love that Carla Hall hosted the opening night! What was that even like?
Mary Cifuentes: Such a dream! We are big fans of Carla. She is an incredibly talented chef and exudes such a fantastic energy wherever she goes. We were delighted to have her at the grand opening and loved the delicious fall dishes she created for the bash. Guests also received an exclusive live demo of her signature biscuits and gravy in one of the showroom's many working kitchens.
New York Spaces: What are some of your favorite design features and products available at the Brooklyn showroom?
Mary Cifuentes: Our interactive bath, kitchen and lighting displays. Builders, remodelers, interior designers and homeowners are invited to experience products through these various inspirational displays, including an interactive shower wall with multiple showerhead and body spray options. To assist shoppers with their lighting choices, the showroom also features an LED lighting lab, which demonstrates how different light temperatures can change the look of an area.
New York Spaces: What would you like our readers to know about the Brooklyn showroom?
Mary Cifuentes: We're located at 360 Furman Street open Monday through Friday from 9AM–5PM. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended. We'll be hosting a series of in-store events, experiences and product demonstrations. For more information, visit www.fergusonshowrooms.com or call 718.510.9507.
