Furniture, rug and accessory resource Silkroute International is relocating its Americasmart showroom to a new, larger space.
The move to Floor 5 in Building 1 nearly triples the space to more than 14,000 square feet, allowing the company to showcase a wider variety of its collections both during markets and between for daily business.
"With increasing our showroom space in Atlanta, we are now able to show a broader range of merchandise," said Ferozan Ibrahimi, owner of Silkroute International. "Not only will we have the space for more of our wonderful one-of-a-kind finds, we will also have a portion of the showroom dedicated to the new division of our company, SilkRoute Home. It's focused on re-orderable items such as our successful, high quality leather Artsome Collection as well as the Park Avenue Collection, an American-made custom upholstery line. This expansion will allow our clients to shop for more of their product needs, from accessories to architectural pieces."
Based on clients' needs, the company opened a 20,000-sq.-ft. warehouse five miles from Americasmart to ensure inventory is readily available.
"A testament to Silkroute's product mix and depth of product selection, as well as our daily and show traffic, the company has been able to expand exponentially in a relatively short period of time," said Mark Furlet, senior vice president of leasing for Americasmart. "Their expansion speaks to the diversity of our home furnishings collections with their wide array of rugs, home accessories, one-of-a-kinds, furniture and wall art creating a major destination showroom on the floor."
"We have been a direct importer since 1979 and have strong relationships with our vendors worldwide," Ibrahimi said. "We do not have a minimum order, as we believe every drop of rain makes a river."
Construction is underway, with the goal to be open in June. To celebrate the grand opening of the new Atlanta showroom, the company will give away prizes, including a cruise for two. The prizes will be awarded during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, July 10-17.
"We look forward to giving our clients and prospective buyers a chance to relax and enjoy a live band, hors d'oeuvres and drinks with us, as we debut our new showroom," Ibrahimi said.
