ESPASSO specializes in modern and contemporary Brazilian furniture. The showroom is committed to conserving Brazil's rich 20th Century design heritage and promoting the work of today's leading designers. Being the first ever dealer to dedicate a showroom in the United States entirely to Brazilian design, Sao Paulo native Carlos Junqueira opened his first store in Long Island City, New York in 2002. ESPASSO moved to its present location in Tribeca, New York in 2006, realizing its true potential for the market. In 2004, ESPASSO's success led to a second showroom launched in Los Angeles. As a premier resource for mid-century and contemporary design, ESPASSO has since the outset become a thriving outpost for interior designers, architects, artists, collectors and museums. The brand has come to be recognized internationally for the finest quality, service and innovative nature of the work it represents.
