The Anthony Lawrence-Belfair (ALB) brand is a third-generation, world-renowned custom furniture and custom window treatment manufacturer for the top interior designers from around the world.
After decades of being at the forefront of the custom luxury interior design industry, ALB President Joe Calagna and ALB Vice President Lana Lawrence opened the doors to the new ALB Design Center of Chelsea in November.
That’s right, the Design Center and LTLYDA are actually both turning one!
ALB’s new Design Center is an absolutely stunning 16,ooo SF custom-luxury interior design-product showroom, designed by Luca Andrisani Architects, the New York-based architect lauded for his retail interiors, including his Fifth Avenue Fendi Flagship design with Peter Marino and Meatpacking District and Las Vegas Poleci fashion boutiques.
His design for the ALB Design Center is truly beautiful. If you haven’t been yet, I look forward to you doing so!
As you can see below, it’s fantastic,
and the corporate offices/ brand headquarters are just as well-designed.
/ THE ALB TRADITION /
What has always set the Anthony Lawrence-Belfair brand apart is the craftsmanship, skill, and attention to detail everyone believes in and practices. I had the opportunity to take a tour of ALB’s on-site workroom with Lana and I was blown away. Over 70 artisans and fine-workmen reside on staff in house, as opposed to a train ride away to a Brooklyn or Queens warehouse, like the majority of New York workrooms with storefronts or offices in Manhattan. Having the artisans at hand is an interior designer’s dream. And the workroom is as beautiful and as organized as the brand’s showroom – a true first for me in over 10 years of interior design practice. I continue to be impressed with everything about ALB and Lana, who I’ve had the pleasure of also getting to know, and am so happy to be collaborating with her and Joe for this celebration.
/ ALB HISTORY/
A focus on doing their very best is an ALB tradition that extends as far back as their work with the legendary Mark Hampton and the great Mario Buatta. They were these interior designers’ go-to artisans, particularly and tellingly with their highest profile clients, like Jackie Kennedy. Hampton and Buatta’s work with the former First Lady on the White House guest quarters is one of their most well known projects to date.
