What’s in Store
Lee Jofa’s legacy collection and Cosentino, a gleaming new showroom specializing in surfaces.
CENTURIES OF STYLE
To mark its 200th anniversary, Lee Jofa—known for textile innovation and timeless prints—has debuted a signature lifestyle collection coined, appropriately, the Lee Jofa 200 Collection. This striking assemblage includes textiles, furniture, carpet, and home accents.
Drawing on the brand’s iconic fabric lines, 16 archival patterns in fresh colorways are part of the collection—from a traditional 18th-century palampore to a 1960s-era chinoiserie. Long-standing Lee Jofa fans will be enthused to see the artisanal handblock-printed patterns Hollyhock and Tree of Life through a contemporary lens in new palettes. Floral Bouquet, based on a 19th-century French document—once featured in the homes of Sister Parish and Mario Buatta—is also reintroduced as part of the assemblage, and Chinese brocade is offered in a lush new satin treatment. Furnishings include the upholstered English arm sofa, Lottie; and 69 hand-dyed area rugs that exude classic modernity in a range of sumptuous materials, including luxurious silk and novelty flatweaves. By revisiting its diverse assortment of designs, Lee Jofa’s bicentennial collection represents a mix of nostalgia and forward momentum—proof that the legacy of this iconic heritage brand will continue to endure.

New to the Seaport in September, Cosentino is a Spanish family-owned company that designs and produces sustainable, innovative surfaces. Part showroom, part meeting space for design professionals, Cosentino’s new location—its eighth in the United States—showcases its robust array of product offerings. Among the selection is Dekton, a carbon-neutral, highly durable product comprised of more than 20 minerals extracted from nature that can be used in kitchens, as well as on floors and exterior façades. Cosentino carries Silestone, a surface material made from both natural and recycled products; the stain-resistant granite and quartzite Sensa is another material one can see, touch, and learn about in the showroom. Scalea, a signature Cosentino offering, is a natural stone available in more than 200 colors.
