PORTLAND, OR – ANN SACKS has announced the opening of its ANN SACKS Studio and Slab Gallery at The Cardinal Building on 51st Avenue in Queens, NY. This is the third ANN SACKS showroom location in New York City and includes a complete range of products and some of the company’s best-selling slabs from around the world. Also featured are a number of vignettes showcasing ANN SACKS, Robern and KALLISTA designs, as well as STRIKE fireplaces and tabletop, glass and homewares, many exclusive to ANN SACKS, states the firm. The ANN SACKS hybrid Showroom/Slab Gallery design joins its earlier Dallas and Nashville locations, which opened in 2022. Additional locations are underway to open in late 2023 and 2024.
The Long Island City brick-and-mortar showroom and slab gallery offers customers a hands-on approach and allows ANN SACKS to warehouse inventory to meet tighter deadlines, states the firm.
The showroom, which connects with the slab gallery in an open concept, allows floor traffic to move throughout the space. A reception area is joined by a conversation point with table surrounded by four leather upholstered chairs, a six-seat worktable, charging stations, and a refreshments center. Additional work stations and a series of vignettes are found throughout the space, including ANN SACKS Curated Willowmere and Rosebrook Suites, and the STRIKE Stella Fireplace in a Pepper, Andoquin, and Antico blend surrounded by ANN SACKS handcrafted MADE Modern Split Square tile in the New Mercury colorway. The Kitchen/Scullery area showcases a backsplash in Senso by Kelly Wearstler, an inlaid archway and single slab island of Calacatta Danielle, with the Scullery walls in a white/beige Ashmont checkerboard tile design, and custom Kodra tile dog feeding station.
Moving from the reception into the adjoining, larger warehouse section, clients will be able to view 60 varieties and up to 500 different slabs. The selection includes an array of ANN SACKS’ Terrazzo Renata designs, as well as a variety of porcelain, marble, limestone, natural quartz and granite slabs.
