Come December, Palm Beach will become home to Cocoon Gallery’s second Florida showroom space. After relocating from Greenwich, Connecticut to Naples, Florida in 2020, Cocoon Gallery is expanding its presence with a new 1,800-square-foot location at 410 South County Road.
Cocoon Gallery offers one-of-a-kind, luxurious pieces of functional art made using unique, organic materials, including wood and precious minerals from some of the most remote parts of the world. The founder, Mitchell Siegel, has an exclusive permit to import exotic species of wood from Southeast Asia, Brazil and other locations.
The company ensures its products are 100% sustainable by sourcing only fallen trees and planting new trees to replace each one they receive. The name “Cocoon” represents a profound transformation and perfectly encapsulates the gallery’s ethos of creating timeless and cherished heirlooms from the most fundamental elements of nature.
After the materials arrive at Cocoon Gallery’s Naples location from their exotic and remote origins, a team of over 50 skilled artisans spend countless hours refining the raw or carved materials through a meticulous process, which may involve kiln drying, sanding, and finishing. The materials are then transformed into unique and exquisite functional art pieces such as sculptures, wall art, and furnishings like tables and lamps, as well as other home and office decor. Customizable pieces can also be commissioned to meet the needs of individual client requests and specifications.
“Our fine wood craftsmen embrace the challenge of turning our clients’ vision into reality and turning their house into a home,” Siegel says.
Cocoon Gallery is expanding its South Florida presence by opening another warehouse in West Palm Beach, which will be larger than its Naples location. This new space will have an even more extensive art collection and will only be accessible by appointment to designers and customers.
“We are so looking forward to expanding our business to Palm Beach,” Siegel says. “In a market with world-class cultural experiences, Cocoon Gallery will distinguish itself as an expert in functional, natural art. The unparalleled materials, impeccable craftsmanship, superb designs and uncompromising standards set Cocoon apart and customers and guests alike will find each visit to this new gallery space immensely gratifying.”
