Lazzoni, which specializes in sleek, customizable furniture for the unique spaces found in metropolitan high-rises, recently opened its third New York boutique in Manhattan's SoHo District and plans to expand in cities including Chicago, Boston, Miami and San Francisco.
"Space is paramount in developing and furnishing metropolitan homes, and it will only grow more important," Kababulut said. "Our furniture features the latest designs and most sophisticated technologies, letting our clients take maximum advantage of the wildly varied floor plans found in these densely populated cosmopolitan areas."
Lazzoni provides consultants who assess homes and map a unique furnishing plan that clients can view and modify via computer. The company's unique collection includes pieces for every room, from beds with storage compartments underneath to stylish sofas with adjustable backs. Its butter-soft leathers are supplied by Italian leather giant Nicoletti, while rails and joints are built by Blum, the Austrian manufacturer known for its BluMotion soft-closing technology.
Lazzoni, a global furniture company specializing in sleek, contemporary designs, has 20 retail stores worldwide, and Lazzoni USA ( www.lazzoni.us) operates three in the New York area while planning further expansion in Chicago, Boston, Miami and San Francisco. Efe Kababulut, CEO of Lazzoni USA, also founded nyfu.com, an online furniture retailer catering to young professionals and college students, and is developing the five-star Lazzoni Hotel ( www.lazzonihotel.com) in Istanbul, where the parent company is based.
