MIAMI—Tuuci Worldwide, LLC, designer and manufacturer of umbrellas and cabanas, announced the acquisition of Pavilion Furniture.
“Pavilion represents Tuuci’s first effort via acquisition to leverage its strengths in design, manufacturing and distribution, and we are excited to welcome its team to our family of companies,” said Tuuci President Tom Parker.

“We are also pleased to announce that Ward Usmar has been appointed president of Pavilion,” Parker said. “Ward has been with Tuuci for 15 years and has been in the outdoor furniture industry for over 22 years, serving on the International Casual Furnishings Association Board from 2011 to 2016, and as chairman in 2013 and 2014. His experience and professionalism will help drive Pavilion to be a leading brand in the outdoor furniture world.”
“I’m looking forward to working with the Pavilion team and building on the rich history that has positioned them for success in the future,” Usmar said.
