Yacht Club becomes third addition

Agio is adding a third Disney Resort Collection this fall. The Yacht Club joins the Animal Kingdom and Grand Floridian Collections, which debuted at last year’s Casual Market.
The new collection was inspired by the Yacht Club Disney Deluxe Resort, which resembles an 1880s coastal New England village. Agio’s designers captured the Florida resort’s nautical theme and picked up on the colors of formal gray and white clapboard to produce The Yacht Club’s “wood-look” treatment.
The collection will include a dining, deep seating and fire pit chat group, as well as a bistro set with drop-in glass or stone top.
“We’re very excited about this new addition to the Disney collection,” said Doug Peppler, vice president of sales. “From its style to its price point, this line will be right in the wheelhouse where our dealers need to be – where they can merchandise the product successfully and with good volume.”
Looking back on the debut of the Disney products, Peppler said, “I think the line surprised a lot of our dealers – surprised in a good way.” Agio has no plans on dropping any items from the returning Animal Kingdom or Grand Floridian lines, he said.
