New Book and Headquarters Commemorate 50 Years of Wolf-Gordon

Wolf-Gordon’s Chelsea headquarters were designed by LTL Architects.

New digs, a retrospective, and a special installation. Wolf-Gordon has its 50th anniversary covered. And while it’s still a family business, helmed by sons of the founders, little else has remained constant. “The changes mirror the ever-increasing design savvy of Americans,” president and CEO Rick Wolf says.

Custom sliding panels feature 40-plus patterns.

Yet, some things are worth repeating. After 30 years in Brooklyn, New York, the company is returning to where it all began, Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, its new 8,300-square-foot headquarters designed by LTL Architects. Blackened-steel armatures frame 40-plus patterns in a custom sliding panel system, while bespoke millwork dons Bildenwood, a birch-veneer wall covering.

Wolf-Gordon colors, patterns, and textures are documented in a sample book from Andrea Monfried Editions.

Last month, Andrea Monfried Editions released Wolf-Gordon: Sample Book, a 310-page chronology of the colors, patterns, and textures that sustained the brand through five decades. This June at NeoCon in Chicago, an anniversary edition of Wolf-Gordon’s annual lobby installation at the Mart will debut, following a tryout during NYCxDesign in May.
