The new additional space is about 16,000 square feet and increases Magnussen's total showroom by 40 percent. In this additional space Magnussen will showcase its new upholstery line which will include 24 new upholstery groups with coordinating occasional table groups and some coordinating entertainment units and media consoles. The new space in Commerce and renovated space in Main will also feature the majority of Magnussen's 80 occasional table groups, 40 master bedroom groups, 10 youth bedroom groups and nine casual dining groups.

"The showroom and its new layout provide a unique configuration and total view of our whole home solution that we can now provide our customers," said Nathan Cressman, president. "This new showroom helps to provide our customers with a fresh perspective of Magnussen Home Furnishings enhancing the presentation of our furniture and provides our buyers with an inviting buying atmosphere. We are very pleased to be able to expand our showroom and unveil this new space during this fall market."
