Wall art companies Propac Images and Paragon have signed leases to establish side-by- side flagship showrooms at Ameri-casmart Atlanta.
Located on the 12th floor of Building 1, the showrooms will occupy a combined 8,400 square feet and be ready for the January Atlanta market.
"We are excited about the prospects both these powerful companies bring to the 12th floor," said Dave Savula, Ameri-casmart EVP of leasing. "These are long-time successful, family-owned companies that offer diverse product collections, which helps ensure our buyers can find the breadth of wall décor product they look for when shopping in Atlanta."
The U.S.-based companies are run by second-generation siblings. Vince Glassco is the president of Propac Images, Lendell Glassco is the president of Paragon, and Malanta Glassco-Knowles is vice president and works with both companies in product development and marketing.
"We are based in Alabama so the Southeast is our prime customer base, and we want to provide the best showroom experience possible in Atlanta," Lendell Glassco said. "Paragon's first show was in the temporaries in Atlanta over 37 years ago, so we are extremely proud to offer a permanent, corporate showroom in Ameri-casmart."
The companies will share technology, hospitality facilities, meeting space and customer service desks. In addition to their market presence, the showrooms will be open year-round to cater to between-market buyers.
"We also look for increased exposure as the showroom will be open on a daily basis, which will allow for more opportunities for us to work with the area's residential and hospitality designers on projects," Vince Glassco said.
