The comprehensive HOME collection at AmericasMart® Atlanta spans the décor and design spectrum with new and expanded showrooms and the new Commercial Design floor joining the Home & Rug, Home Accents & Fine Linens, Home Accents & Furnishings and Home & Design categories at The Atlanta International Gift And Home Furnishings Market®.
Celebrated home accents and home furnishings leaders are choosing Atlanta to reach new markets, with 22 showrooms opening, expanding and relocating on six floors in time for the Market. Notable among these are Wildwood and Chelsea House opening their first showroom locations outside of High Point, N.C. in Building 1, Floor 14. As previously announced, Ashley Furniture joins the Market in Building 1, Floor 4 to showcase its trend-driven lifestyle product presentations.
“We are excited to open our second showroom location, and we believe Atlanta is the perfect place to do it. Many of the designers with whom we collaborate work out of the Atlanta area, and we are thrilled to give them convenient, year-round access to another Wildwood showroom,” says Russ Barnes, vice president of Wildwood.
“We are thrilled to be showing in Atlanta,” adds Bill Cain, president of Chelsea House. “With the extraordinary growth of Chelsea House that we have enjoyed, this is the next natural step to continue to meet the increasing needs of our customers.”
