Dallas Market Center reveals Interior Home + Design Center exhibitors
October 13, 2016,
Dallas Market Center finalized the first collection of luxury home exhibitor partners for its Interior Home + Design Center, a new 220,000-sq.-ft. marketplace serving interior designers and retailers. The project, which redevelops the first floor of the International Trade Plaza building, represents the largest expansion of luxury home décor showrooms in Dallas in more than 40 years.
Leases within the Interior Home + Design Center include Taylor’s On Ten, a leading agency of luxury lighting and home décor; Visual Comfort; Ralph Lauren Home; Bliss Studio; Dessau Home; Emissary; In 2 Green; Shadow Catchers; Ambella Home Collection; Zuo; Ratana Casual Furnishings; Lawrence & Crane; Wish Designs; Spicher & Company; Ashore; and Botanical Mix.
“We look forward to creating a wonderful new home for our signature designer lighting collections in what will be our largest to the trade showroom in the country, open on a daily basis,” said Andy Singer, founder and president of Visual Comfort. “The opportunity is tremendous.”
“We were among the first to sign a lease for showroom space, and we enthusiastically support this stylish and bold plan to serve more customers year-round,” said Luis Ruesga, founder and CEO of Zuo.
Originally opened in 1957 as the first building on the Dallas Market Center campus, the current International Trade Plaza will transform into the re-imagined Interior Home + Design Center after a multi-million dollar renovation. While staying true to the building’s mid-century design, the updated space will feature a curated collection of state-of-the-art, open-daily showrooms from leading home décor companies serving an active interior design community as well as the seasonal markets. The building will offer showrooms with individual exterior entrances, large exterior windows for natural light, hundreds of front-row parking spaces and valet service.
“Consistent with our philosophy of providing new, exciting, and a modern point of view on the classics, we are happy to be partnering with the DMC to launch the Interior Home + Design Center,” said Tom Jung, president and CEO of Bliss Studio.
“Reaching qualified customers year-round is more important than ever, so we are pleased to join the IHDC and to deliver our artwork to the retail and design communities,” said Mark Spicher, owner of Spicher & Co. “We look forward to the grand opening.”
