It’s a trend repeated more often than not along Orchard Street. Storefront vacancies become galleries, further challenging Chelsea (and now the Upper East?) for art world domination. Next to assume the position, so to speak, are two new showrooms – Broadfoot & Broadfoot and the Muriel Guepin Gallery.

The eclectically-named Broadfoot & Broadfoot opened at 155 Orchard last month after Adrienne’s consolidated its footprint just down the block. According to the website, the showroom has been in the business since 1992, when owner Scott A. Broadfoot first began the collection. There’s apparently another location in Boonton, New Jersey.

Muriel Guepin comes from the shores of Chelsea, and is reopening inside the ground level of 83 Orchard, formerly the Kaight boutique. The showroom is still under construction, and will launch on March 1 with an inaugural exhibition featuring art by Anne Geoffroy and Isabel Brito-Farre.
