Cocoon Gallery Plans to Launch Second Florida Showroom in Palm Beach This December

The company is well-known for its expertise in designing and producing contemporary furniture made from organic materials sourced primarily from Southeast Asia.

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.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
