Italian-Sourced Furniture Maker Opens Pop-Up Shop in Meatpacking District

Real estate development firm TF Cornerstone (TFC) announced the recent opening of a Klarel pop-up at 95 Horatio St. Klarel, an Italian-sourced, direct-to-consumer furniture company, has opened its first brick-and-mortar store at the base of TF Cornerstone’s residential rental building, 95 Horatio St., in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Klarel has leased approximately 4,000 square feet of ground-floor space. 

“With strong retail presence in our residential buildings throughout the city, we continue to support the neighborhoods in which we develop by delivering high-quality retail with incredible brands like Klarel,” said Steve Gonzalez, VP of retail leasing at TF Cornerstone.  

Founded in 2018, Klarel has grown from a strong E-commerce brand to this first  brick-and-mortar location.  All of Klarel’s products on the sales floor are available for quick delivery across New York City, with no assembly required.  

Both TFC and Klarel represented themselves in the lease signing.
