Join Niermann Weeks at NYDC

Amanda_Feature

All of us at Niermann Weeks are going a little nuts right now as we prepare for our big fall market in the New York Design Center. My daughters have created new designs for Niermann Weeks, and they have re-arranged our showroom to look as spiffy as possible. They also had to leave room for the last minute delivery of new, exciting products for the soft opening of Amanda Nisbet Designs for Niermann Weeks. As an interior designer Amanda has a sense of color that thrills my heart, plus she and my daughters really understand the transitional look that the market finds appealing these days. This announcement doesn’t give you much idea of the excitement we have in store for you, however our landlord Jim Druckman has scheduled public events in his building throughout the day, so please come on down to 200 Lexington between 32nd and 33rd.

Niermann Weeks will be open all day on September 19 from 9am on, but our special event time is 6:15 to 8:15 pm in Room 905. At that time you can visit with Amanda and her VP Raymond Schneider as well my corporate family: our designers Eleanor and Claire Niermann, our President Justin Binnix, and our incomparable manager Sandra du Plessis. We’ll be happy to give you a personal show-and-tell of all our new designs, both from Amanda and from Niermann Weeks.

Amanda Nisbet has won many awards for her interiors, which in my opinion combine the best in form, function, and vitality. She keeps her business small and personal, just like Mario Buatta, so her clients deal with her and she creates the perfect space for them. In fact, the night before our soft opening, New York Spaces will honor her among the Top 50 NY Metro Designers, esteeming her trademark as Intriguing compositions of quality materials and one-of-a-kind finds. So we at Niermann Weeks are pleased to combine our range of extraordinary finishes with her original furnishings’ designs. Together we will fulfill her website’s promise to provide products with a special alchemy of refinement and livability.

Further, Amanda will also do a book signing for her new book, Dazzling Design, which will save you a trip to the bookstore or to Amazon plus let her autograph it just for you.

Then in the coziness of your own home, you can always reference her creativity, whimsy, color, and practicality. Who else is creating such energizing vibrance, like this den with our Capucine Chandelier?

 And to end this sample of Amanda’s interiors, here’s a calmer living room that includes our Gabrielle Sofa.

Personally I could happily live in an Amanda Nisbet room, but now to the new goodies from Niermann Weeks. My daughters will have stocked our showroom with almost thirty products, a few new to NY, but many new to the world. As usual, everything is hand-made here at our factory outside Annapolis, Maryland, using just-in-time manufacturing processes that allow us to make perfect products in a timely manner. I find it fascinating that every first-time visitor to our plant freaks that our artisans make our goods by hand. A comment of praise that lives in my heart came from Katherine Pearson, editor of the late and always lamented Southern Accents. She considered Niermann Weeks reservoir for American crafts. I think Katherine would approve of my favorite new NW products: the Greek Key Pendant, the Tissage Dining Table, and the Damon Sconces flanking the Marlene Console.

Look at the Greek Key fixture in detail. Steel banding frames the tension of the oversized Greek keys in gold leaf, and a slightly antiqued mirror under-plate helps diffuse the light softly downward. I want one in my own home.

The delicate tracery of the Purcell Console also pleases me. It looks so small and slight in its Venetian silver leaf lines, but, bolted to a wall at top and bottom, it can hold a metaphorical elephant.

Thanks for reading my blog, and do come see us in New York – either on the 19th or at a time more convenient for you.

All my best,

Eleanor
