“Adding interior design for the Legacy 600, Legacy 650 and Lineage 1000 to the comprehensive Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 design suites is part of our effort to provide world-class design immersion on our complete line of aircraft,” said Jay Beever, Vice President Interior Design. “Our showrooms are an integral part of the Executive Jet Customer Center, which opened in December, and they provide the ultimate, state-of-the-art visualization technology for an integrated design experience.”

The Embraer Executive Jets Customer Center is designed to facilitate customer sales, design and delivery, all conveniently located in a single building. The design centers were developed by The Highland Group and designed by Julie Mandrell, owner of Viaggio Lux, which specializes in luxury design of aircraft and yachts. Modern lines, high-contrast colors, rich woods and sculpture are integrated into the design experience.

In the Phenom, Legacy and Lineage design centers, customers receive the personal attention of their customer account manager and the Embraer design and engineering teams in developing the design using the most advanced fabrics, leathers and optional equipment for cutting-edge aircraft interiors. The team also includes configuration experts to guide clients through the selection of materials and systems, enabling them to customize their aircraft to best satisfy their individual needs and missions.

Materials, carpets and systems cover more than 3,000 options for the Phenom, Legacy and Lineage executive aircraft. The team will use the industry’s latest design tools to rapidly produce high-quality renderings of furnishings and materials to ensure they meet customer expectations.


In the coming months, customers will also have full-size cabin mockups to explore in a special mock-up showroom in the Customer Center.
