Boston – Minotti Boston, the company’s fifth flagship showroom in the U.S., recently opened in the heart of the Theatre District.
The exhibition space of over 6,000sf was launched with ddc Group, already a partner of the company for the flagship stores in New York and Miami. The interior architecture, conceived and created by Minotti Studio, the company’s in-house creative department, presents a variety of sizes, shades, and sophisticated textural choices, in harmony with a cosmopolitan city’s taste and lifestyle.
The space features a long-slatted wood signature hallway in a deep, rich tobacco hue, and a warm, relaxing space bathed in the natural light filtering through the large floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Stuart Street. The slatted wood accent can be found throughout the Minotti Boston showroom.
The showroom intersperses a carefully placed, alternating exchange of vignettes and visual details, including portions of mirrored walls and ceilings. The window displays, warmed by the tinted tobacco nuance of the wooden floor, center around the Quadrado outdoor seating system by Marcio Kogan/studio mk27 and the Connery indoor modular system by Rodolfo Dordoni.
Minotti has championed both domestic and international designs, and the new showroom is a series of living, dining, night, and outdoor areas showcasing best-sellers and distinctive pieces from recent collections.
Guests of the opening included Anthony M. Frausto and Kyle McCreight Carroll of Morehouse MacDonald and Associates; Adolfo Perez, Adolfo Perez Architects; and Elizabeth Whittaker, Merge Architects, who collaborated on the showroom’s design with Minotti. Also in attendance were Emily Pinney of Pinney Designs; Dane Austin, Dane Austin Design; Paula Daher, Daher Interior Design; and Bill Trifone, Bill Trifone Interiors and Hancock Appliance. Kristin Rivoli of Kristin Rivoli Interior Design; Mechi Peng, Meichi Peng Design Studio; Gina Newfeld, GSD; and Laura Schwendt, Schwendt Interiors; also attended.
Dennis Duffy of Duffy Design Group, who has a long history with ddc Group and Minotti, also attended the event. He expressed his excitement for the Minotti Boston showroom by saying, “For me, Minotti embodies the epitome of modern luxury. The design is distilled and, at the same time, extremely livable in many contexts. And the craftsmanship is unequaled.”
