Espasso Annex, the latest venture from Espasso founder Carlos Junqueira, is a gallery dedicated to showcasing vintage and limited edition Brazilian furniture. In addition, the Annex has forged a collaboration with Sao Paulo’s Luciana Brito Galeria – one of the leading art galleries in Brazil. As part of Luciana Brito’s New York Project, three curated exhibitions will be presented throughout the next twelve months.

Espasso Annex was created as a compliment to nearby Espasso, to meet the growing demand of its customers for vintage and rare furniture by its roster of acclaimed Brazilian designers. The new location will allow the original Espasso, and its locations in Los Angeles, Miami and London, to expand upon its exclusive collection of contemporary designers, including re-edition furniture and accessories.

Espasso Hosts Brunch to Celebrate Stella, Etel and Giz


During Miami Art Basel, ESPASSO celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Stella chair, a beloved piece by design icon Sergio Rodrigues. First created in 1956, Sergio Rodrigues’ “Stella” armchair comes in two versions: with a low or high back. ESPASSO fans might already be familiar with the Stella’s low version, but we are proud to add the first ever re-edition of the high back armchair to our collection this holiday season.
