DALLAS – September 18, 2019 – Ivystone, a leading multi-line gift and home showroom with locations across the country, has extended their partnership with Dallas Market Center via a lease renewal for their 15,000 square foot showroom in World Trade Center 236.
Ivystone’s Dallas showroom is open-daily and features more than thirty manufacturers merchandised into vignettes of gift products and lifestyle products including home décor. Over the past several months, the showroom has remerchandised collections and added or expanded new lines to appeal to buyers visiting from across the U.S. and internationally.
Brands including Capri Blue and Consuela are now strategically located near the front entrances in order to attract buyers visiting each week or during trade events including Total Home & Gift Markets, Apparel & Accessories Markets, and Dallas Design Week. An Ivystone Design Studio now provides workspace for designers to review products from a range of home furnishings companies like Worlds Away, Zuhaus Home, and Elizabeth York, as well as recent additions including Union Home and Celadon Art. Debuting in the coming months are new vendor partners BudHa Girl, Fish Kiss, and Modern Sprout as well as an expanded presentation and experience from Corkcicle in time for the January Total Home & Gift Market.
“Our Dallas showroom continues to be critically important and uniquely positioned for success,” says Doug Cofiell, CEO of Ivystone Group. “The business today is year-round and 24-7, and we must serve buyers on their schedule. That’s why we have invested significantly in online tools as well as Dallas showroom improvements. But most importantly, we have showroom staff and sales representatives working tirelessly on behalf of our vendors to help customers succeed.”
Ivystone joins dozens of gift and home companies deepening their commitment to Dallas Market Center and its unmatched year-round business. In addition to Total Home & Gift Markets attended by tens of thousands of retail decision makers, the marketplace welcomes buyers to five Apparel & Accessories Markets each year, coordinates multiple private buying events by major stores, and hosts thousands of members of the interior design trade every month.
“Ivystone’s strong legacy in Dallas is matched by their progressive commitment to serving customers week in and week out,” says Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “They are a top showroom destination in demand by savvy buyers for their strength of product and excellent customer service. Congratulations to their dedicated team.”
