Gat Creek offers new customization kiosk
October 18, 2017,
AT THE MARKET – Solid wood case goods manufacturer Gat Creek has unveiled a new customization kiosk that will allow retailers to showcase the company’s many finish and fabric options on their floors.
The kiosk displays 64 finish options as well as multiple fabric and hardware options. These samples can be easily removed from the display, which will help the salesperson communicate the story to their customers.
The kiosk has a two-sided center section with a white background, which offers a contrast to the magnet-mounted ash, cherry and maple stains and painted wood finish samples. A slim-line back framework also displays photos, the company’s marketing message and a company brochure pocket that is complemented by 15 fabric and leather samples and a hardware display board on opposing surfaces. The kiosk rotates on a 360 degree swivel to make all of the content easy to access.
The company’s 24-page brochure which is also available on the kiosk, communicates the company’s history, from its early days in an antique shop in Baltimore to its current manufacturing plant in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., which employs 130. The brochure also touts the company’s solid wood story and practice of traditional manufacturing methods from traditional joinery to world class manufacturing equipment and holistic sustainability practices that include “material and finish choices that contribute to a healthy home.”
“We styled the kiosk to support the Gat Creek contemporary take on traditional furniture,” said David Petersen, vice president of marketing and brand development for Gat Creek. “In our view, there are a handful of furniture brands that truly help their retail partners look hip and current. With this sleek kiosk design, we think we have joined this club.”
At the Oct. 14-18 High Point Market, the kiosk will be on display at the company's showroom in High Point in space D-1020 of the International Home Furnishings Center.
