Format Business location

Experience that will leave you suitably inspired

The impeccably designed rooms and relaxed atmosphere makes you want to sit on everything. And stay for hours.

Depending on the time of day, espresso or wine is flowing. A design specialist will leave you peacefully to enjoy a carefully curated display of furnishings or provide expert insight into such topics as kitchen, living area or any room of your home, or optimum closet organization. It’s not uncommon to find the sprawling showroom hosting an intimate cocktail party. Or an elegant art exhibit.

You are in the heart of SOHO at Format Furniture. Not simply a high end furnishings boutique, but an experience that will leave you suitably inspired.

Established more than 20 years ago by Brazilian designer Sany Marques, Format has carved a unique niche in the high-end furnishings market. Serving an elite residential and commercial clientele, Format streamlines interior design by offering solutions for every room. “We can outfit an entire home or business,” shares showroom manager Robin Kay.

While the showroom spotlights impeccably designed inspirations from all over the world featuring some of the world’s most coveted furniture lines, each piece shares a common denominator that gives way to owner Marques’ predilection for muted colors, non-patterned fabrics and clean lines. The result is a showroom with a continuous look throughout—a design philosophy. A taste level to be appreciated. And a springboard for your own ideas.

With a team of talented, approachable designers and salespeople, Format has grown into one of the most successful furniture boutiques in Manhattan. And quite possibly the world. Its’ impressive portfolio includes star-studded restaurants in New York and Las Vegas, as well as kitchens and bathrooms for exclusive residential apartment buildings and custom closets for hotels.

“Even though we do a large volume of work, we always have personal attention and dedication to each job.”

We invite you to experience the world of Format. We promise you will leave enlivened. And emboldened.
