Lillian August made a move this summer, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Dan Weiss, CEO, and John Weiss, COO, brothers and co-owners of Lillian August Furnishings + Design, have opened a new showroom at 195 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich. This new Greenwich Atelier is primely located on the Avenue in a space that is 50 percent larger than its previous Greenwich location on East Putnam Avenue. Lillian August has a long history in Greenwich—they had their first showroom on Greenwich Avenue for a ten-year span from the late 1990s to 2000s, followed by a location on Elm Street, and then most recently at the East Putnam location for the past five years. This new store is the fourth Greenwich location for Lillian August and the biggest and best yet.
The decision to move to a bigger showroom in the epicenter of Greenwich Avenue comes at a time when Lillian August is focused on expanding their retail presence in Fairfield County, building upon their already unparalleled design resources, and growing the global reach of their licensed collections.
“We’re excited to be back on the Avenue in a prime retail location for our target clientele. Greenwich Avenue is a luxury shopping destination, and it’s the perfect place for the Lillian August Greenwich Atelier,” says John. Adds Dan, “The new Greenwich Atelier space is larger, and with its central placement on Greenwich Avenue, it offers greater exposure for the brand. It makes sense for Lillian August to have a presence on Greenwich Avenue, and we couldn’t be happier about the move.”
The Greenwich Atelier offers a curated experience that delivers a boutique approach to expansive design services, which are available in Greenwich as well as at the company’s Norwalk Design Center, Sono Annex, Stamford Warehouse and online. The new Greenwich store showcases a range of home furnishings, accessories and rugs that Lillian August is known for. Featured products include the new Lillian August Modern Living signature collection and an area of “buy off the floor” furniture. The light-filled space with freshly painted white brick walls feels welcoming and inspiring. 195 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich; 203-489-3740; lillianaugust.com
