The New York Design Center has been committed to transforming and enhancing both living and working environments for more than 85 years.

Representing classic creations as well as avant-garde contemporary innovations, this renowned Design Center has a worldwide reputation for providing imaginative solutions to any design challenge.

Located at 200 Lexington Avenue, the New York Design Center is the country’s oldest furniture and design building. Built in 1926 as the New York Furniture Exchange, 200 Lex was the dream of visionaries in the furniture industry.

This historic 16-story, 500,000-square-foot building designed by Ely Jacques Kahn was originally available only to furniture and department store buyers. In the late 1970s, the building began to shift its focus towards interior design and architecture; and in 1981, emerged as the New York Design Center.

Today, 200 Lex houses nearly 100 showrooms representing more than 500 lines of fine, traditional, contemporary, residential and contract furniture, as well as fabric, floor covering, lighting, wall covering, kitchen and bath and decorative accessory resources.

The New York Design Center continues to introduce new initiatives further proving its dedication to the design industry. The Gallery at 200 Lex powered by InCollect, located on the 10th floor, features over 55 galleries of fine antiques and 20th Century Vintage from The Gallery at 200 Lex dealers. The program “Access to Design” is intended to educate consumers on the value of good design, offering tools to consumers and design making 200 Lex a destination for all design needs.
