The Gabriela Hearst flagship store is located on New York’s Madison Avenue adjoining the Carlyle Hotel. Designed by Zaher Katerji of ZARI Architects in collaboration with Hearst, the 1,900-square-foot store, housing the fashion designer’s entire range from clothing and shoes to accessories and jewellery, reflects the eco-luxury ethos of the brand with natural, chemical-free materials, excellent workmanship and energy-efficient lighting. A neutral colour palette and tactile materials including cashmere and silk wall panels, oak walls and furniture, and wood-and-marble tiled flooring, create a welcoming environment. Autoban’s Throne Dining Chair in oak and rattan features in a room dedicated to handbags. Deco Sofa, also designed by Autoban and crafted by De La Espada, was customised by ZARI Architects exclusively for this store, its U-shape configuration creating a warm and inviting central space with luxurious custom details including cashmere upholstery and rose gold accents on the oak panels.
