Cocoon Gallery is opening its second Florida showroom in Palm Beach this December.
Cocoon Gallery moved from Greenwich, Connecticut, to Naples in 2020. The 1,800-square-foot Palm Beach location will be at 410 South County Road.
Showcasing such organic materials as wood and precious minerals sourced from some of the most remote parts of the globe, Cocoon features one-of-a-kind, luxurious pieces of functional art. Founder Mitchell Siegel holds an exclusive permit to import exotic species of wood from Southeast Asia, Brazil and other locations.
The products are 100% sustainable, Cocoon Gallery says. The art uses only fallen trees and plants a new one for each one it receives. Cocoon is a name that symbolizes a life-changing evolution and characterizes a gallery focused on fundamental pieces of nature.
Cocoon’s 50-plus artisans transform the raw or carved materials through a process that could include kiln drying, sanding and finishing. They then turn the materials into sculptures, wall art, and furnishings including tables and lamps.
Cocoon takes commissions for customized pieces. “Our fine-wood craftsmen embrace the challenge of turning our clients’ vision into reality and turning their house into a home,” Siegel says.
In addition to a 25,000-square-foot warehouse in Naples, Cocoon will soon open a warehouse in West Palm Beach that will be home to an even larger selection of art and will be available by appointment only for designers and customers.
“We are so looking forward to expanding our business to Palm Beach. In a market with world-class cultural experiences, Cocoon Gallery will distinguish itself as an expert in functional, natural art,” Siegel says. “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.”
