Jamestown, NC— Furniture industry professionals, including manufacturers and media partners, are scheduled to attend the grand opening of Furnitureland South’s outdoor furniture gallery Wed., Mar. 13, 2019.
The world’s largest furniture store and leader in the home furnishings retail industry now includes a state-of-the-art 30,000 square foot gallery that focuses on outdoor spaces that expand the livable space of a home.
Furnitureland South CEO and President Jeff Harris said the new outdoor gallery is a stunning collaborative effort between the Furnitureland South merchandising team and the many fantastic brands represented. “More and more people are taking luxury living outdoors,” Harris said. “And we’re pleased to present the very best that the outdoor furniture industry has to offer — the latest designs, fashions and performance fabrics.”
This brand-new gallery allows customers to visualize a variety of environments for outdoor furniture — from the mountains to the beach — and create an inviting outdoor atmosphere for friends, family and neighbors.
Becky Greene, Furnitureland South Executive Director of Merchandising, said that the new outdoor gallery provides a stunning visual representation of the way outdoor living environments are becoming vital to consumers home designs.
“When I was growing up, we had picnic tables and old fashion lawn chairs and maybe some wrought iron furniture, but that’s all outdoor furniture was,” Greene said. “Today outdoor furniture has become a whole other category and sometimes you can’t even tell what’s outdoor furniture because it looks so stylish and comfortable! And when I consider our fast-paced, digital society, I realize that people need to feel connected to the outdoors. Being outside feeds our souls in a way that’s even more important than it was generations ago.”
Shelby Sari, Furnitureland South Merchandiser and Outdoor Gallery Buyer, said that the new gallery provides consumers an easy shopping experience based on a better, best, luxury approach to merchandising. “Every manufacturer has their own strengths,” Sari said. “So even if we start in the gallery where the ‘better’ begins, we offer manufacturers that are the best in certain specialties such as outdoor motion and marine grade polymer techniques.”
Sari also mentioned that the outdoor gallery’s offerings extend outdoors to include furniture featured in front of Furnitureland South’s two main showrooms and into the Outlet, which features market samples and unbeatable prices.
