                  Atlanta, GA Designer Event

Mostly recently, all the Summer Classics Home retail store locations hosted, Devoted to Design, an event exclusive to our design partners as well as designers interested in connecting with Summer Classics Home. This preview event allowed our designers to get a first look at our newest collections while they were treated to a delicious brunch and bubbly mimosas.

Not to mention, our awesome door   prizes! For this event, each designer received our newest catalogs, tools, exclusive deals, and the chance to win an $1,000 gift card. To get the excitement going in the stores we asked our Design Consultants to go around and ask our designers what their favorite Summer Classics and Gabby pieces are.                 Mary Joe Tosh, $1,000 winner, Birmingham, AL SC Home
