The grand opening of the Interior Home + Design Center at Dallas Market Center on June 21 saw more than 600 guests turn out to celebrate the newly redesigned space.
The private gala inaugurated phase one of the renovation, which is the largest expansion of home decor showrooms at Dallas Market Center in more than 40 years. Showrooms inside the center held receptions and special events and guests enjoyed light bites, a dessert bar, refreshments and entertainment.
“The grand opening was tremendously successful on all levels but more importantly it signals our long-range commitment to expanding our exhibitor partners’ business and reaching more buyers year-round,” said Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We look forward to the next phase of this project, which is already underway, and to welcoming additional leading companies into this vibrant marketplace.”
The mid-century modern building includes home decor companies like Phillips Collection, Ralph Lauren Home, Bliss Studio, Robin Baron, Lacefield Designs and Taylors.
“The event was exactly what we had hoped for, and we were thrilled with the excitement,” said Jane Murray, owner of Taylors, a luxury lighting and home decor agency. “We saw lots of loyal customers throughout the show, and we picked up new customers too. I’m looking forward to the remainder of the year and strong daily traffic from the design community.”
Phase two of construction began July 5 and includes exterior façade renovations, exterior landscaping and the next stage of interior showrooms. This phase will culminate with a celebration in the fall.
