Radnor Opens Upper East Side Showroom

Upper East Siders have a new neighbor: Radnor, the furniture gallery and workshop founded by designer Susan Clark in 2016. Its new showroom, which opened in March, occupies a full-floor condominium on 88th Street and was co-curated by Clark and architect Elizabeth Roberts. Throughout, some 70 furnishings and objects form thoughtful vignettes, from a dignified dining room to a snug breakfast nook. In the former, Egg Collective’s walnut and blackened-brass Kenny dining table anchors eight Bunn Studio
designed Pillar chairs in walnut and leather, while brass Almendres candleholders and bronze Surface sconces, both by Studio Henry Wilson, look on. In the breakfast nook, a Bunn Studio Pillar table in bleached maple and Rojo Alicante marble mingles with ARV beech chairs by BRDR Krüger and silk-linen wall art by Oyyo. There are plenty of Radnor Made pieces on view, including Philippa, a shaggy 5-foot-wide pendant in natural warp and horsehair by Clark and textile artist Alexandra Kohl. See also Clark’s Core tables in Breccia Stazzema marble; Parallax, a Karl Zahn bronze coffee table; and Triad, a desk forming part of a furniture collection Roberts designed on the occasion of the showroom’s opening.
