Over the weekend, the department store revealed "Roomscapes of The Imagination," an instillation where a group of interior designers, architects and artists (like Joe Grillo, Peter Shelton and Benjamin Noriega Ortiz) were hand-picked and given free range by Freedman to create a space of their own individual interpretation.
He told WWD this morning, "I said, 'Here's your space. That's your room. Within that room I really want you to let your imagination fly. Sometimes people are a little cautious. For me, the goal is to always do what's not expected of you."
Sounds like Freedman's got the Barneys attitude down pat, as the store's built its livelihood on always being a little outside of the box in everything from buying to overall aesthetic. The rooms, though each done in a different manner of style and each created by a different type of artisan, all magically and very beautifully work together as one big space.
So if you aren't going to stroll by the Barneys flagship store on Madison Avenue any time soon, take a look at some snapshots of the new amazing windows in our gallery below.
