TUUCI opens permanent showroom in Chicago
Thomas Russell -- Casual Living, July 6, 2011
TUUCI, a manufacturer of innovative shade structures, has opened a permanent display in the Chicago Merchandise Mart. Located in Suite 1555, the space will feature an array of TUUCI shade products including parasols, lounges, cabanas and pavilions.
"We have participated in trade shows at the Chicago Merchandise Mart since TUUCI's inception, but always in a temporary space," said Ward Usmar, senior vice president of sales for TUUCI. "After several years of participation, we think this is the right time to increase our physical presence to a permanent standing at this national destination."
Primarily a target for residential designers, residential landscape architects and retail stores, TUUCI's 1,600-sq.-ft. space features products for every style, contemporary to traditional. Fourteen shade structures from the Ocean Master, Ocean Master MAX, Plantation, Plantation MAX, Lounge and Pavilion collections will be on display, along with an array of shade anchors. Members of the trade will be able to place custom orders while visiting the showroom.
TUUCI will hold an Open House during the International Casual Furniture Association Preview Show, July 12-14, for customers to browse through the product display and learn about the brand.
