Our Gaithersburg showroom is incredibly unique in that it was created to feel like a residential space with its own simulated backyard patio with fireplace and waterproof TV; an iFi zone where customers can listen to the best headphones and personal listening products the industry has to offer; living room with high end audio and luxury decor and furnishings; listening room with the latest speakers and audio technology from Totem, Bowers & Wilkins, PSB, Artnovion and more; conference room with Crestron automation technology and Baltimore-local tables and products; and a home theater with a 140" screen and elevated theater seating for the ultimate big-screen experience. Our newest space is made with modern-industrial elements from white marble countertops to glass and pipe shelving, and even a sign of our logo made from reclaimed wood and metal. The whole showroom includes lighting by Lutron and Civilight with schemes and moods that we can customize and time to our liking, as well as multiroom audio and video. We also have a separate neighboring building specifically featuring our commercial capabilities, from teleconferencing to security to sound masking to interior design.
Take a look at our designers' official statement:
"In an effort to create a new showroom that stood as a monument to what Gramophone can accomplish all on its own, we designed our new Gaithersburg showroom from top to bottom. It was to feel like one of our clients' homes, and little like a retail space. After much research, we decided to transform the empty concrete rectangle we were given into a finished space that brought together rustic elements with industrial design. The space would include a patio, bar, rec room, listening room and fully functioning theater.
We included some elements from our other stores into the design. "Film Strip" niches were placed on the fronts of the bulkheads leading back to the theater, and our Gramophone logo is found etched into a piece of old metal right as you enter, an immediate focal point of the store entry, branding this new location as part of the legacy we have built."
