The Molteni Group and Archivia Books are joining forces to invite you to toast the holiday season with furnishings, kitchens, and books at Archivia Books’ pop-up bookstore, which opens tomorrow evening.
Co-founders Cynthia Conigliaro and Will Rogers opened the independent bookshop Archivia Books on New York’s Upper East Side in 2007 to specialize in illustrated books. The original Archivia: The Decorative Arts Book Shop was located on Madison Avenue across from the Whitney Museum from 1991-2001, and had established an international reputation. Now housed in a lovely, 800 square-foot space on Manhattan’s Lexington Avenue, Archivia Books features over three thousand titles on architecture, design, decorative arts, interiors, furniture, gardens, fine arts, fashion, and a miscellany of fiction and non-fiction. The store serves neighborhood clientele as well as a professional base of architects, designers, gardeners, collectors, museum curators and all those interested in the visual and applied arts. Designed by Cynthia Conigliaro herself, the shop also offers a physical space where customers seeking design inspiration, cultural exploration, and historical reference can discover and interact.
The Italian furnishing company Molteni Group opened the two-floor Molteni&C Dada Unifor Flagship Store in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan. The store features Molteni’s modern home furnishings, the Dada kitchen collections, doors by Citterio, and the contemporary furniture built for work environments by Unifor. The New York Flagship Store is the first example of integration not just of technology and style, but also of retail between all the firms in the Molteni Group.
We are excited to present the opening of their pop-up bookstore this season!

Storefront for Art and Architecture, the New York City nonprofit organization founded in 1982, is committed to helping progress pioneering thinking in architecture, art and design through their acclaimed exhibition program. With exhibitions, artist talks, film screenings, conferences, and publications, the organization initiates conversation “across geographic, ideological and disciplinary boundaries.” Because of its location in the Chinatown/Little Italy/Soho area of New York City, three considerably different cultural neighborhoods, Storefront has been known to attract a diverse audience.
This Saturday, September 26, the public forum for emerging voices is inviting readers, artists, thinkers, builders, visionaries and the like to The BLDGBLOG Book Launch. Author Geoff Manaugh of The BLDGBLOG Book (Chronicle Books; Paperback; On-sale now) has been a voice in speculation about architecture, landscape, and the built environment since 2004. Enhanced by stunning images, The BLDGBLOG Book cultivates Manaugh’s distinct vision, offering an inspirational and entertaining idea-filled guide to the future of architecture.
It’s a free and open to the public day-long event of presentations covering architectural conjecture, urban speculation, and landscape futures, by many of the writers, thinkers, and practitioners whose work is featured in The BLDGBLOG Book at Storefront for Art and Architecture.
