Stephan Weishaupt Assumes Full Ownership of Avenue Road
Top-tier structural changes have taken place at furniture and lifestyle brand Avenue Road. Stephan Weishaupt, who founded the furniture brand with Interior Design Hall of Fame members George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg, has assumed full ownership of the firm, which operates its headquarters and a showroom out of Toronto, and an additional showroom out of New York.
Despite the changes, the duo behind high-profile design firm Yabu Pushelberg will continue to design furnishings for Avenue Road. In 2016, launches from designers including Christophe Delcourt, Bruno Moinard, and Marlieke Van Rossum will push the company’s product lineup to over 20 pieces. This year will also mark the debut of a textile collection—”the color concepts are very strong and we are working closely with Yabu Pushelberg to create very exciting patterns,” Weishaupt reveals.
