The A&D market is currently interested in the unique, in a more selective, exclusive and distinctive product. Sumer Classics introduced “White Label”, an exclusive line of luxury outdoor furniture targeted to select high end retailers and designers.
Outdoor Furniture is the fastest-growing segment of the home furnishings industry, and Summer Classics opened its new expansive showroom #C1388 & C1396 in the new Las Vegas C Building with 250,000 square feet of dedicated casual furniture showroom space on C12 and C13. Richard Wright in the August 2015 issue of Hearth and Home Magazine writes “our belief is that outdoor living is now a permanent part of North American Lifestyle”. He illustrates the American Society of Landscape Architects’ 2015 “Residential Design Trends” survey reveals that Outdoor Rooms are among the most requested projects by their clients.

Furniture Today, 5/25/15 affirms that more plentiful than ever before are the variety of styles available, as well as material and fabric, and more sophistication in terms of color, design and performance.

Summer Classics introduced to Las Vegas Parker James, a sister company offering private labeled or customized products designed by Summer Classics experienced design team and manufactured in our factories, but shipped direct container and with limited stock warehousing.
