Carole Sloan -- Furniture Today, May 22, 2013
CLEVELAND - Arhaus Furniture, which specializes in upper-midpriced to high-end home furnishings from around the world, has announced it will enter the Dallas market in summer 2014.
The chain's third location in Texas, after recently opened stores in Austin and Houston, will be the 47th U.S. store for the Cleveland-based business founded by father and son Jack and John Reed. The 24,000-square-foot gallery space in Dallas will be in NorthPark Center, 8687 North Central Expressway.
When it opens next year, the store will carry signature Arhaus pieces including sofas, sectionals and chairs wrapped in organic leather and custom order fabrics, officials said. Other categories will include indoor and outdoor dining, antiques and replicas, bedroom furniture and private label bedding collections, library and office pieces, wall units, media centers and a large assortment of seasonal accessories.
The store's interior will feature skylights, a river rock fireplace, hand-painted murals and a combination of distressed oak and stone flooring, as well as display elements like the Arhaus "chair wall."
"Our build-out is like no other in the industry," said CEO John Reed.
"We invest a great deal of time creating an environment that not only appeals to the shopper, but maintains our trademark look and feel."
Dallas residents will be able to shop at Arhaus Furniture starting in summer 2014. This display is in the chain’s Austin store, one of its two existing Texas locations.
