Late in summer of 2016 we decided we were outgrowing our showroom and set upon searching for a new glorious space. After a fair amount of looking we found an extraordinary 1000 square foot virgin space on Greenwich Avenue. In less than 10 weeks we went from a completely raw space to what is now the newly constructed ASHA Penthouse. On Wednesday evening of this past week, we officially opened our doors to more than 200 friends and customers who helped us celebrate what is now our new showroom and second floor storefront.
The penthouse boasts a painted shagreen jewel box, a marble bar, high ceilings and sunny windows overlooking Greenwich Avenue. A new concept in retail, the ASHA Penthouse doubles as a store and a gorgeous atelier for me and my team.
Enjoy the following images!
