Christopher Guy reported that it will again strengthen its presence in the United States with the unveiling of a brand new showroom at the Las Vegas Design Center on January 28th 2012. The grand opening of the showroom will coincide with the Winter 2013 Las Vegas Market, January 28th-February 1st 2013.
Located at the Las Vegas Design Center, the premiere location for high end furniture and accessories for the West Coast, the 8,184 square-foot Christopher Guy showroom will occupy two adjacent showroom spaces. The new showroom will be designed as a gallery space where visitors will experience the designs found in Christopher Guy’s “Galleria” collection, showcased on pedestals and in a dramatic wall art and mirror gallery setting, while also admiring the signature Christopher Guy collection showcased in lifestyle settings depicting living room, dining room, and bedroom settings.
The focus of the showroom will remain on the key furniture pieces that encompass globally patented Christopher Guy elements such as the “Chris X” legs. A highlight of the showroom is the state-of-the-art fully functional Christopher Guy Design Lab, created as an ideal working environment for interior designers allowing for interactive capabilities to complete entire design projects. The Design Lab is a designer’s dream and will soon provide the Christopher Guy’s newly designed “iRoom Planner” allowing a designer to create an entire project within a one-stop working platform. All the tools needed by a designer will be readily available and at their disposal.
Christopher Guy is no stranger to the Las Vegas Market. During the Winter 2011 Las Vegas Market, Christopher Guy was awarded the prestigious Design Icon Award. “The opening of the Christopher Guy Las Vegas showroom marks our fifth dedicated showroom in the USA and I could not be more delighted to be part of the Las Vegas Market designer showroom community. Over the years we have worked on many properties in the area, from residential to some of the world’s most prestigious resorts, starting years back with the Bellagio and more recently with the Encore” says Christopher Guy Harrison, “and a presence in Vegas will position our company to continue to partner with the great hotel designers that contribute great products to fine hotels.”
The opening of the Las Vegas showroom follows the successful opening of the Christopher Guy flagship showroom in West Hollywood, California. The 10,000 square foot showroom, which opened in July 2012, houses a complete state-of-the-art experience in an extraordinary showroom presentation, aimed at capturing the essence and glamour of Los Angeles' famed lifestyle.
In April 2013 Christopher Guy will once again expand its presence in the US with the opening of an 18,000 sq ft showroom in the historic New York Design Center. This showroom will become an integral part of Christopher Guy’s global headquarters, and will showcase Christopher Guy's newest collections. Aimed at strengthening the brand’s offering to key designers and architects in one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas, the new showroom will showcase 3 penthouse suites portraying the varying lifestyles of a well traveled consumer.

In June 2011, Christopher Guy took Europe's center stage at London's Harrods with a magnificent Christopher Guy showroom on its renowned furniture floor. This stage was again compelling as Christopher Guy stole the show during the latest Decorex exhibition in London. Designed specifically for Decorex 2012, Christopher Guy created a sculptural centerpiece fondly titled, “CG's Beacon of Craftsmanship.”
Capturing the attention of all visitors, the staggering 8 meter high tower comprised of 270 individual pieces of hand-carved CG designs was mounted in a carefully orchestrated ad hoc manner and visible from every angle of the vast Decorex marquee.
Later this year, Singapore, the business hub of Asia, will embrace the opening of a center piece Christopher Guy showroom, situated in one of Singapore’s most prominent locations overlooking the city-state’s majestic and inspiring skyline, a movie of which can be seen on the Christopher Guy website.
