DENVER POST: PRESS RELEASE  JULY 19, 2007

SWANK NEW DIGS:
The high-end design showroom Nielsen Metier recently relocated from the Denver Design District to a converted industrial space in the Santa Fe Arts District. Owner Richard Nielsen says the move was a way to support one of the city's vibrant cultural centers while infusing his business with a chic urban aesthetic. Now located at 965 Santa Fe Drive in a building formerly occupied by Harrys Motors, Nielsen Metier represents such coveted furniture, upholstery and wallpaper manufacturers as William Switzer, Gina B, Jane Shelton, McGuire, Pierre Frey and Scalamandré, and carries original artwork. Showroom hours are Monday-Thursday, 10-6, Friday, 10-4 and Saturday by appointment.

EDITORS Nielsen-Metier
It might be new to Santa Fe Drive, but Nielsen-Metier is one of the city's most well-established showrooms, with more than 15 years in the Denver design business. Owner Richard Nielsen made the leap from the Design District last summer and so far has been very well received in the art district. Look for the same brands�Pierre Frey fabrics and Summer Hill furniture, to name a few�elegantly arranged in the new space (a former motorcycle garage). Ask about owner Richard Nielsen's gorgeous canvases that the Santa Fe artists have been scooping up since he first put them out for sale a couple of months ago. (We hear that Nielsen is thinking about phasing out the furniture to focus on artwork sales. So shop there now while you can.) 965 Santa Fe Drive, 303-722-0072
