Kreiss launches gallery program
Staff Staff -- Casual Living, February 15, 2007
Known for its California Look blending understated quality and casual comfort, the 68-year-old family-owned Kreiss home furnishings company launched a gallery program in its newest showroom in Building B at the Las Vegas Market.
The Kreiss family co-hosted a ribbon-cutting with tennis pros Andre Agassi and his wife Stefanie Graf, who are partners in Kreiss' new Agassi Graf Collection.
Agassi bought a Kreiss sofa after he won his first major tournament, Wimbledon in 1992. Agassi and Graf later became devotees to the Kreiss aesthetic and talked about designing a custom collection for their own home. Instead, they decided to partner with the Kreiss family to launch an indoor-outdoor furniture collection that debuted at the Las Vegas World Market Center, Jan. 29–Feb. 2.
"It felt like a natural extension of our long-standing relationship," Kreiss President Mike Kreiss said.
The Agassi Graf Collection combines the couple's design sensibilities and features pieces for the dining room, living room and poolside.
"While the collection is chic and sophisticated, the strength and texture of the materials lend themselves to an indoor-outdoor lifestyle," Agassi said.
With 20 showrooms nationwide, Kreiss is looking to expand its distribution in select markets by offering gallery opportunities to a limited number of retailers. To make an appointment, call Miki Gorman at 858-453-6245.
