Parisian interior design force Catherine Memmi brought her signature minimalist aesthetic to the U.S. in 2003 with the opening of her first stateside showroom, a three-story spot located on Greene Street’s contemporary furniture main drag. Working primarily in a neutral color palette of black, beige, grey, and brown, Memmi debuts a new collection of blocky, unadorned dressers, tables, and seating each spring and fall. The basement level and main floor of the industrial-style space are dedicated largely to living room pieces, with dark wire-brushed oak tables and boxy brown leather couches standing out against concrete floors, bare white walls, and floor-to-ceiling shelves filled with glass vases. Natural light from skylights combats the monastic vibe, and decorative black and white striped curtains provide the showroom’s only pattern. Couches are upholstered in full grain leather, silk, or linen, with contrasting feet of oak, beech, steel, or iron, while dressers made of Wenge wood feature leather fixtures. Though the focus here is on furniture, a limited assortment of Memmi’s namesake line of room sprays, lotions, and scented candles are also available.
