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.
“We’re building on the momentum we’ve had with Gabby in the Dallas Mart,” says William White, president of Gabriella White. “Designer’s Patio is a longstanding dealer so we look forward to working with them on this to-the-trade showroom.”
“We are excited to welcome Summer Classics to Dallas Market Center,” says Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Summer Classics is home to some of the most luxurious outdoor furniture in the industry, and we are thrilled retail buyers and interior designers will be able to experience their products in person at market.”
