Inside Alt Box: New York's Lifestyle Showroom

If you love interiors and if you love New York, we have the perfect place for you! ALT BOX is the recently opened boutique interior design showroom on the Upper East Side, where you can browse through the latest collections from international textile designers or chill out, reading a coffee table book, whilst enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

ALT BOX is the second branch of ALT for Living, which opened its doors in 2008 in the heart of the Flower District and features a cultivated assortment of fine carpets, textiles and home furnishings targeted at interior designers, representing brands such as Perrine Rousseau, Krane as well as the full Eva Sonaike textile and soft furnishing range.

Analisse Taft-Gersten, the founder and owner of both ALT enterprises, who has been an integral part of the US interior design world for over a decade, collaborates with the most prestigious firms in the design business, through her showrooms.

Analisse ventured out to open her second space ALT BOX in June 2016, a chic and cosy boutique showroom specialising in luxury fabrics and home furnishings targeted at the busy New Yorker interior designer. Including the many brands that ALT for Living offer, ALT BOX also stocks a collection of stylish coffee table books, scented candles and unique accessories from designers around the world.

Her motto ‘A fulfilled life is one best lived surrounded by beautiful designs’, is evident in the space that she created, filled with eclectic furniture, fabrics, rugs and everything you would dream of having in your home. ALT BOX is more than a typical showroom, but an environment that gives you the chance to explore beautiful pieces whilst enjoying a cup of delicious cappuccino at their in-store Vienna-inspired café, which creates the perfect spot for a meeting.

As Analisse mentions: “I want my customers to feel like they are part of an experience, not part of just someone else’s vision”.

We love the beautiful geometric black and white tiled floors, in juxtaposition to the shelves that are filled with the beautiful, colourful fabrics from ALT BOX’S international designer selection. We even spotted  our pink Aye and grey Odi cushions in their woven armchairs.

Like a kid in a candy store, this space is every interior designer's dream! And we are honoured to be part of both, ALT for Living and ALT Box. If you feel just as inspired as we do and would want to explore this space in person then click here for their details.
