Canadian furniture and lighting brand opens UK showroom

Gabriel Scott has unveiled its new London showroom in the heart of Mayfair, with a 1000-square foot space that houses its furniture and lighting designs.

The Old Burlington Street address showcases Gabriel Scott’s distinctive chandeliers and pendants, a glamorous range of chairs, dining tables, and side tables, as well as provides a venue where designers, architects and end customers can plan projects and interiors schemes.

Gabriel Scott was founded in 2012 when brothers-in-law Gabriel Kakon and Scott Richler first collaborated while working as architects in Montréal, Canada. Often tasked with specifying high-end custom furniture for clients, the pair realised that projects would benefit from a holistic approach, if they were able to control every detail of a building design, right down to the furniture and lighting.

Each piece of furniture and lighting in the collection is handmade in GABRIEL SCOTT’S 30-thousand squarefoot studio in Montreal’s historic Garment District, a neighbourhood renowned for its status as a pioneer of Canadian fashion and design.

“We are hugely excited about this next step for our brand. It feels like the right time for us to arrive in London and make our works more accessible to a growing UK/EU demand,” comments Gabriel Kakon.

“Although we are expanding, the heart and ethos of GABRIEL SCOTT remains the same,” adds Scott Richler.

“We are as committed as ever to creating beautiful, contemporary, hand-crafted pieces of design that people will be able, and want to, pass down from generation to generation.

“Our London showroom is classically chic and understated, with minimal white walls, an elegant muted-tone stone floor and brass trims. Think art-gallery meets Celine store.”
