Summer Classics and our fine outdoor furniture traveled to High Point, NC for the International Home Furnishings Market. Before designers and buyers from around the world arrived for market the 22-27, the Summer Classics team was hard at work preparing our permanent showroom for the market visitors. A special SC thanks goes out to Chris Hutchens, our visual merchandiser; Carmen Squadrito, our sales rep in North and South Carolina; and Jeremy Rago, our national sales manager; for all of the diligent work they put into preparing our beautiful show space.
The Rustic Sectional welcomed visitors into the showroom, and was a delight for everyone to see and sit on as they came in. The sectional is new addition to the Rustic Collection for 2012, and was one of the most popular pieces at market.Our new Mahogany Finish was also a popular feature at market. The finish is available on many of our pieces, and is the featured finish of our new collection, Kipling.
Marina was another show stopper in High Point, and it is also finished in Mahogany.Every detail of Marina combine to make it extraordinary. The hand tied rope accents are not only special for aesthetic reasons, but the rope is crafted using the finest Sunbrella® fibers. That means it looks and feels like rope, and it holds up in all weather conditions the same way our fabrics do.
After all the work that’s gone into our collections it was rewarding to see the excitement of customers who knew us as a brand when they found our permanent showroom in High Point. We saw many new and old customers, and the show allowed us to share our products with them and exemplify our renowned southern hospitality.
