"AmericasMart is a great sales venue for casual furniture because it offers the opportunity for so many retailers to view products," said Mark Henry, president of Windham Enterprises, LLC. "The Market brings a wide variety of potential customers from mom-and-pop retailers, designers and multi-store buyers. Few venues offer such an opportunity for manufacturers to expand their distribution."
"The Living. Outdoor/Indoor. The Gardens. collection presents the optimal way for designers and retailers to shop for casual furniture," said Jill Ford, vice president of leasing for the category. "They love seeing all the product they need in our unique garden-like setting, and our dedicated and knowledgeable full-time showroom staff provides industry-leading service both during the Market and in non- Market times."
AmericasMart's casual furniture showrooms are located in The Living. Outdoor/Indoor. The Gardens. collection in Building 2, floors 9 and 10. They are open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and during home and gift markets.
