Norwalk Opens Year-Round Showroom at World Market Center

NORWALK, Ohio-Norwalk Furniture has opened a 3,300 square-foot showroom in Building A of the World Market Center, space A225, which will be open during the markets and week days, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The new space projects an urban attitude and places a focus on the more than 850 fabrics and leathers that Norwalk offers as part of its highly customized upholstery, the company said.

"Like High Point, our Las Vegas showroom will offer retailers fashion forward upholstery displays dressed in the most current fabric and color trends," said Reyna Moore, Norwalk Furniture vice president of marketing and merchandising. "It presents a consumer presentation to both inspire our dealers as well as to appeal to the clients of interior designers who visit the space on a year-round basis."

The showroom is another step in Norwalk's expansion on the West Coast, following the hiring of Carrie Norris as vice president of business development in the spring of 2011.

"Our double digit growth since 2009 is due to the strong partnerships with independent retailers who want an affordable custom upholstery source made in America, which can deliver a wide range of options in fabrics, trims and wood finishes in a timely fashion," Norris said.  "This showroom is intentionally inspiring, colorful and touched with whimsy."
