Vietri founder and CEO Susan Gravely, will cut the ceremonial ribbon on the 1,200-sq.-ft. space (C-186) July 30 at 10:00 a.m. The World Market showroom will mark the third permanent space for Vietri, in addition to existing showrooms in Atlanta and New York.
"In addition to our classic collections, the fall introduction will launch in Las Vegas. We have something for every buyer - a new holiday collection, traditional Tuscan landscapes, the next big thing in bridal, and trend-setting accent and home décor collections," said Holli Draughn, Vietri national sales manager. "We are thrilled to unveil such a strong product line-up in such an unbelievable arena, side by side with the very best in the industry."
Susan Gravely, with her sister, Frances, and mother, Lee, founded Vietri in 1983 after a family trip to Italy where they fell in love with colorful handpainted dinnerware on the Amalfi Coast. Vietri has grown from a small company representing one Italian factory to the largest Italian importing company in the American tabletop industry. Today, Vietri works with a number of Italian manufacturers involved in ceramic, glass, stainless steel and pewter.
