DALLAS – December 6, 2016 – Dallas Market Center, the largest and most successful open-daily home décor marketplace in the country, has announced that ZUO, one of the fastest growing home décor manufacturers, is expanding into new showroom space opening January 2, 2017.
ZUO is relocating from the Trade Mart into a 3,500 s.f. showroom to World Trade Center 504 in order to offer a wider selection of lighting, indoor and outdoor furniture, mirrors, home accents and rugs. The new space will provide space for year-round service to the design trade, which continues to visit Dallas Market Center in record numbers. Each month more than 2000 members of the interior design community visit Dallas Market Center and in order to serve this important customer base, the new ZUO showroom will be open Monday through Friday.
Customers will have the opportunity to work with showroom manager Clay Kulcak and local sales representative Josh Caballero.

Sales representative Caballero has been with ZUO for one year and recently received the 2016 ZUO Salesman of the Year award. The company’s dedicated staff and passion for their clients has resulted in more sales growth in the region served by Dallas Market Center than all other territories combined. This exponential growth is in part why the company decided to move to the World Trade Center and to be open daily.
“As our company continues to expand and serve a wider customer base, we are very excited to open a new showroom in Dallas,” said Luis Ruesga, CEO of ZUO. “I can’t wait to see what visual merchandising director John Perez has in store for the design as we launch our Pure 2017 Lighting and Accents Collection. We are all eager to see the response to this new India artisan-crafted collection. To support the new showroom, our marketing team has created a full schedule of design events and cocktail hours throughout the year including special discounts to local trade clients. This way designers can see and touch our products and talk with our Dallas team. From all of the ZUO family we look forward to seeing everyone soon.”
