Shh... This Is Where All the Cool Designers Shop for Statement Lighting

We're always asking interior designers for their best tips and trend advice but there's one thing we really want to know, where do they shop? Well, we've been asking a few of them lately and there's one place that consistently comes up: Allied Maker. The chic handcrafted lighting designs are the genius of designer duo, Ryden and Lanette Rizzo and after one peek into their 2000-square-foot showroom and we can see why all the pros shop here and tried to keep it a secret.

Dating around 1910, the former dentist's office was in complete disrepair before Ryden and Lanette collaborated with architect Marshall Shuster to transform it into the stunning space you see now. Located in the TriBeCa neighborhood in Manhattan, New York, the showroom consists of three levels (the shop is on the street level, the office is on the mezzanine, and client meetings are taken in the basement). 

Despite the total overhaul required, the space did have two major things going for it: a ton of natural light pouring in from the street and large proportions that allowed them to play with scale. The end result is a welcoming, almost meditative space where the Allied Maker pieces can truly shine. Take a tour through the showroom for yourself to see what we mean. You'll want to move in.
