New York - May 17th - De La Espada.    The Director of the Portuguese company De La Espada Luis De Oliveira stands beside the Reedy Bookcase designed by Seyhan Ozdemir and Sefer Caglar of Autoban at the De La Espada store in SoHo.   “We consider ourselves more like talent scouts, we focus on the personality of the designer, on the story they can tell and we promote them while we sit quietly in the background, this is what makes us different from other companies.” De Oliviera explained.

De La Espada/ Seating for Eating.     The Seating for Eating collection designed by Ilse Crawford of Studioilse was shown for the first time in the United States. Seating for Eating is furniture that brings people together and is made by hand in solid chestnut, with copper feet using sustainable sources.

De La Espada/ Upholstered Tapas Chair.  The Upholstered Tapas Chair designed by Matthew Hilton for De La Espada is a light and comfortable high backed dinning chair with slim-lined upholstery and a nod towards the strong forms of Spain’s characteristic objects.  The unique shape of the seat shell set upon the three legs makes a compact piece of furniture that does not dominate space around the table and provides superior balance on any terrain.
