100% of operations now based in Naples serving an international clientele

Naples (Feb. 24) — Cocoon, a retailer of nature-inspired, hand-crafted furnishings and décor founded in Greenwich, Conn. in 2009, has relocated its entire operations to Naples, Fla. The Naples showroom is located on 5th Avenue South, in the heart of Naples’ vibrant retail and dining scene.

Relocating the Greenwich operations included moving Cocoon’s woodworking facility to the Naples Design District, near the corner of 5th Avenue North and Goodlette-Frank Road. The facility is where artisans create original live-edge furniture and décor from exotic woods, including live-edge mirrors, sculptures, wall art, and other décor sourced from obsidian, geodes and quartz.

Cocoon is a licensed importer of exotic wood from Southeast Asia. The wood is sustainably harvested; a tree is planted for each tree harvested for the company. Cocoon reflects the passion of its founder Mitchell Siegel for organic beauty, whether it be an Indonesian root sculpture or handmade pottery from Northern Thailand. He has traveled to remote parts of the world to work with local craftsmen.

“The Cocoon team believes that the Naples address speaks volumes about quality to discerning buyers around the world,” commented Siegel. “Plus, it is an ideal base for Cocoon to expand elsewhere in Florida,” he continued.

Cocoon customers, which include show business and sports celebrities, have described the Naples showroom as “mesmerizing” and “irresistible.” The space teems with artful objects from small vases and bowls to towering sculptures of intricate roots. Live-edge tables, benches and chairs abound.

Customers may visit the woodshop to source raw elements to create a custom piece unique to their interiors. Visits are by appointment and include the opportunity to watch artisans at work.
