CHICAGO – World Renowned Outdoor Brands to Showcase Latest Designs,September 20–23, 2016 The Mart in Chicago announces an exciting line up of NEW manufacturers who will exhibit at Casual Market Chicago September 20–23. New exhibitors such as ARTiculatedshade and Kingston Casual Furniture add to the Market’s vibrant mix of offerings and include a wide range of products.
“Kingston Casual is excited to introduce our line for the first time at the Casual Market Chicago because of the diverse buyers who attend the show. Kingston is unique because we can produce three mediums (all weather wicker, aluminum and teak furniture) allowing customers to mix them all into one single container with no minimum. Because of the wide reach of those who attend the Casual Market Chicago, this was the only market that made sense for the Kingston Casual launch. We will show eleven new collections at the market, including five lines developed exclusively for the Casual Classics Buying Group,” said Dow Canup, president of Kingston Casual.
“We have chosen the Casual Furniture Market to debut our large compact umbrellas for its broad exposure to industry experts and potential for immediate and valuable feedback. First impressions are important and the more novel a product, the more important the first impression seems to be. But it’s lasting impressions that make or break a company. We look forward to forming first and lasting impressions with the many professionals Chicago hosts who seek enduring value beyond any novelty,” said Jennifer Arndt, founder of ARTiculatedshade.
For almost four decades, Casual Market Chicago has offered the most complete collection of furniture, trends and accessories for outdoor living. And, it’s the only show in North America dedicated to the casual and outdoor furnishings industry that is exclusively endorsed by the International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA).
