Design Center Debuts in Dallas
June 20, 2017,
DALLAS—The Dallas Total Home & Gift Market kicks off here this week offering a record number of new showrooms and special events and the debut of The Interior + Home Design Center.
The design center significantly expands its home decor showrooms at Dallas Market Center and will feature several educational events. A full list can be found here. A reception hosted by Dallas Market Center and title sponsor Elle Decor will commemorate the celebration.
As part of the grand opening of the Interior Home + Design Center on Thursday, Dallas Market Center will present a discussion with architect Hermes Mallea, who will discuss her book, “Great Houses of Havana: A Century of Cuban Style,” which explores the rich, sophisticated and varied history of Havana architecture and interior design.
“Designers will want to plan ahead to see all of the stylish new resources and special events we are presenting to inspire, educate and help them succeed. Across the World Trade Center, Trade Mart and the new Interior Home + Design Center, and only during market, will we have the products, the people, the events, and the energy that will support a design community that continues to grow,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center.
Technology, meanwhile, will be a special focus at Lightovation, which will emphasize new products available in June with a full day of education about connected lighting and smart home. A full list of events can be found here.
