Showroom highlight: Remadeo debuted as a major in North America
Gusano, Italy home furnishings brand Remadeo has been toying with the idea of an American showroom for some time now. But just last month the company finally made that dream come true with a shiny new flagship store in New York’s NoMad district.
For years, Rimadesio’s business model in the United States consisted of only one independent representative, Andrea RomanoIt is based in Europe and travels back and forth about four times a year to grow the US market. But Romano believes that if the company is really going to take off, he will need to establish himself permanently in America. “In the United States, if you want to do something well [with your business]You have to do it here.” work from home. “You have to be here.”
So Rimadesio started expanding its distribution network in North America with multi-line showrooms, growing from one dealer to two to 20.” At that point, I started saying if we wanted to do well in the US, we needed to to our own showroom,” Romano.
When Rimadio began shopping for a location, he encountered the high price tags all too familiar for the Manhattan real estate market. Then the epidemic struck. “We saw this space before COVID, but the money they were asking for was beyond anything we could think of,” Romano says. “When COVID happened, I said, ‘Okay, let’s check again.'” A different real estate agent gave us plenty of options and told me the owner was open to a conversation about the price. We got it at 37 percent, and she called [owners and brothers Luigi and Davide Malberti] And they said we either do it now – the perfect price point, the right location – or we never do it. A week later, we agreed on the space.”
The new flagship is spread over three floors with a total area of more than 6,000 square feet – a space that has taken over the Italian architect. Andrea Pozzoli Almost a year to renew. Headed by Romano and a team of four, the showroom features the company’s entire product range, from doors and shelves to panels and cabinetry, allowing architects and designers to sample the many Rimadesio products in action in concert. “Designers can touch and see that Remadeo goes beyond just a sliding door—they see back panels, entire walls, and hallways with furniture,” he says. “Suddenly, they realize that Remadeo is not just a single product but an entire system. Not only do you sell more that way, but designers can find real solutions. They look like kids in a toy store. And it’s contagious — they use it in one house, then another.” this What we’re trying to do here.”
