Summer Classics to Open Dallas Market Center Showroom

Thursday, December 20, 2018

Dallas Market Center announces that Summer Classics, a member of the Gabriella White family of companies and premier manufacturer of luxury outdoor furniture, will partner with Designer’s Patio to open a showroom in the World Trade Center prior to the upcoming January Total Home & Gift Market (Jan. 16-22, 2019). The showroom will be located in WTC 154, adjacent to the front doors of the World Trade Center and the Gabby showroom, also a Gabriella White company that creates high-style indoor furniture and lighting.

“We decided to open a Summer Classics showroom because they are innovative, stylish, and work hard to make sure their styles, fabrics, and overall ambiance are exactly what our designers are looking for,” says Geneva Wallace Switzer, co-owner of Designer’s Patio, which will manage the showroom.

The new Summer Classics showroom will offer buyers and interior designers the ability to custom order, making it the perfect place to bring a client. They will also host a lively display of available-now furniture, most of which can be delivered in 48 hours.
