Founder, & Creative Director

Stephan Weishaupt

For curator Stephan Weishaupt, design is about relationships. Weishaupt’s intuition, world view, and above all, affinity for connecting people is what helps him bring the best of the world of design together into a truly original experience. Born and raised in Munich, Weishaupt’s relationship with his family — a long line of entrepreneurs, architects and carpenters — imparted his insatiable curiosity and appreciation of art and design. After graduating from the University of Applied Sciences, Weishaupt worked in marketing for a luxury automotive conglomerate before establishing his own communications consultancy with an impressive roster of design and fashion clients. His friendship with design legends George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg ignited the idea for a curated design experience that would bring undiscovered global talent to America. Together they founded AVENUE ROAD in 2007, with Weishaupt taking full control ownership in 2016. A decade later, Weishaupt’s unique taste has received many accolades, his homes having been featured by the likes of Architectural Digest, The Wall Street Journal, and Vogue. However, true to form, his focus and his measure of success is the quality of the relationships he’s built with the world’s top designers and brands who have come to trust him as a true collaborator. Stephan’s appreciation for the unexpected, coupled with the respect for authentic craftsmanship led him to join the Fogo Island Art Advisory Board in 2017. This new role along with a continued expansion of the AVENUE ROAD experience across North America alongside plans to build an all new standalone international furniture brand will undoubtedly be the foundation of many more inspiring relationships to come.

Where is AVENUE ROAD?

An intriguing address, a non-sequitur name, AVENUE ROAD evokes somewhere you can’t put your finger on. Perhaps that’s because it isn’t one place but many design destinations. No matter which one you find yourself in, you can be certain to expect the unexpected.

Timeline

Stephan Weishaupt has always led a well-curated life. Growing up in a family of architects, industrial designers and passionate art collectors in Munich, Germany, he was exposed to the masters of mid-century-modern furniture from a very young age. His childhood home was filled with their iconic pieces, inspiring a lifelong inclination for good aesthetics and the impetus for Avenue Road, the upscale furniture showroom he founded in 2007 alongside Canadian design idols George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg. In 2014, Weishaupt took over as sole owner, and has since elevated the brand to new heights. This fall, Avenue Road will expand to the West Coast with its first Vancouver location.

Our Sustainability

WeForest

Sustainability isn’t only about where products come from and how they are composed, but about things designed to stand the test of time. AVENUE ROAD presents products made from natural materials and built to become timeless classics for generations. In 2018 we begin a partnership with WeForest to help put back more than we take by contributing a percentage of our profits to reforestation. WeForest works with communities, local organizations, and NGOs to develop scalable reforestation projects, demonstrating how it is possible to mobilize communities and restore degraded soils. WeForest, backed by a scientific network, is growing a movement of small and large responsible companies committed to having a positive impact for people and for our planet.
