Furniture | Chicago Spotlights The Great Outdoors | October 2013

Renovated and expanded showrooms along with a large list of new exhibitors brought a renewed energy to last month's Casual Furniture & Accessories Market held in Chicago's Merchandise Mart. Since last year, more than 65 residential and outdoor furnishings tenants were relocated into new spaces. The new spaces were designed to improve the shopping experience by creating a more concentrated, easily navigable showcase of the top names in outdoor furnishings for buyers. Meanwhile, the show experienced a plethora of new exhibitors, many of whom focused on outdoor accessories including rugs and fire-making items.
