New York City has always been the centre of attention. Its strategical geopolitical location in the East Coast helped the city grow in the past, carried by the growth of Wall Street. But lately, it wasn’t about the financial or the political aspects no more.
But what could we expect from a city that breaths and transpires art? New York has been going through a metamorphosis process with more and more top brands appearing in the Big Apple. Today we bring you a selection of not only tables but other pieces of house furniture to better understand the power of NYC design.

Today the designers represented by Ralph Pucci International include Patrick Naggar, Chris Lehrecke, India Mahdavi, Michael Anastassiades, and many more. For Ralph Pucci, great design is an on-going quest to celebrate the legends while also looking to the future and supporting emerging talent, which has led to an on-going partnership with students from Pratt Institute, where Pucci serves on the board.
