Raymond Waites designer store is shut down
August 7, 2002,
New York — Raymond Waites Interiors, the retail designer store opened by home furnishings designer Raymond Waites in June 2001, has closed its doors.
The 2,000-square-foot store, on 10th Street in Greenwich Village here, was designed to be a showcase of Waites' designs and catered primarily to the interior design trade, as well as consumers shopping the highly concentrated neighborhood of antique shops.
Waites added, "While I loved the idea of bringing my work to a wider audience, we've had such explosive growth in licensing that I have to concentrate on that."
