Klaussner Outdoor showroom to open in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart
February 9, 2015,
The Klaussner Outdoor showroom will be part of the Mart’s Design Center on the 16th floor and will debut during July’s premarket show for the International Casual Furniture and Accessories Market. Klaussner introduced the outdoor line at the Casual Market in September. Gary McCray, president of Klaussner Outdoor and chairman of the International Casual Furnishings Assn., said the new showroom will include products from the Premier, Select and Limited product lines.
The Mart has been the setting for the Casual Market Chicago for more than 35 years. The Design Center on the 15th and 16th floors includes more than 45 outdoor furnishings showrooms.
“We are thrilled Klaussner Outdoor has made the decision to open its first showroom at the Mart,” said Bryon Morton, vice president of leasing at Merchandise Mart Properties. “We’ve proven time and time again that the Casual Market is the only destination to find the best in outdoor furnishings and this deal represents the ultimate commitment to The Mart’s permanent showrooms and the Casual Market Chicago.
The Cassley Sunlounger is part of the Klaussner Outdoor collection that debuted in 2014.
