Zuo Décor debut collection wins “Best of Floor” award at Atlanta Market

Recently launched division expands company’s selection

ATLANTA – Zuo’s new Décor Division won AmericasMart “Best of Floor” award for its debut showroom in Atlanta. This is the third time that Zuo has won this coveted award in their 12-year history and the first win for the Zuo Décor Division.

Andrea Guardiola, director of Zuo Décor, was ecstatic when AmericasMart VP of Leasing Karen S. Greaber and team came to present the award for the debut collection and remodel of their current 4,500 square foot showroom.

The winner of the “Best of Floor” award is chosen each market by an independent panel of judges who look for stunning displays and bold visual merchandising designs. “Best of Floor” award is given every year during January and July Atlanta Markets.

The Zuo Décor Division launch is a result of an ongoing effort to expand the company’s product selection. The 1,000-plus new Décor products provide customers with finishing touches on their designs while staying true to the Zuo philosophy of designing affordable and fashionable products. Categories include: accent furniture, clocks, candle holders, desk accents, indoor planters, figurines and object d’ art, mirrors, pillows, trays, wall art and vases.

“Merchandising Décor is different from working with furniture and lighting products,” said John Perez, visual merchandising director, Zuo. “The sheer attention to detail and care of each installation is more focused and tells an entire story. With each designed vignette, Andrea and I cultivated a theme for the different collections. Our team also paired each motif to stunning Tempaper wall coverings to further express each collection’s style. This approach to design and merchandising was dual-purposed, in that we intended to tell a visual story while also providing our retail customer with ideas on how to mix the many collections. To hear that our hard work and designs received an award is truly uplifting and exhilarating accomplishment. Having the award come to us on the debut collection is twice as rewarding.”

“Andrea’s knowledge and experience of the industry partnered with John Perez’s brilliant merchandising techniques created a spectacular design,” said Luis Ruesga, CEO, Zuo. “We’re very proud of how the Décor debut was received and recognized. To be awarded the ‘Best of Floor’ award on Andrea’s first collection is outstanding. I can’t wait to see what John and Andrea have in store for our Las Vegas Market showroom at World Market Center.”

Zuo Décor’s Atlanta showroom at AmericasMart Bldg. 1, 11th Floor, Space E1/E2, is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
