Zeeland’s Herman Miller Opens New York City Retail Store, Designed as a House


Herman Miller, Inc., a global design manufacturer based in Zeeland, has opened a new branded retail store on the first and second floors of its multi-level New York City flagship building.

The 6,000-square-foot store, located at 251 Park Ave. South in Manhattan, will offer current and vintage Herman Miller furniture, lighting, and accessories along with products from vendors and artisans from around the world, such as rugs from Danskina and Breuckelen Berber, kitchen and tabletop items from Deborah Ehrlich, pillows and bags from Maharam, and more.

“Having our own physical retail presence in a major U.S. market will further cement Herman Miller’s position as a premium lifestyle brand with unrivaled multi-channel capabilities,” says Brian Walker, CEO of Herman Miller. “Our goal is to create fans, not customers, and this store will connect us with new fans in a tangible way.”

The new store’s floor plan is laid out as a modern home, with rooms that demonstrate designs for living, working, dining, socializing, and sleeping.

Located in the retail hub where the city’s historic Union Square intersection, Gramercy Park, and Flatiron District meet, the new store is designed to appeal to design-driven consumers.

The Herman Miller store will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

In addition to the new store, the building houses commercial showrooms for Herman Miller and Geiger, and corporate office space for Maharam, Design Within Reach, and Geiger, which are all Herman Miller owned companies. In total, the design manufacturer occupies eight floors, equaling almost half of the 120,000-square-foot building.

Herman Miller provides furnishings and related technologies and services. In fiscal year 2016, the company generated $2.3 billion in revenue and employed nearly 8,000 people worldwide.
