Gabby will join luxury outdoor furniture brand and sister company, Summer Classics for the 17th Annual Garden Party. Designers and dealers from all over the country will arrive in Birmingham for the event to be held at the corporate headquarters July 24-26. This year’s theme, “Design,” will be a celebration of Life’s Best Moments Furnished, for the indoors and out.
Our customers will be the first to preview the newest Gabby introductions, which include relaxed, natural looks that can go into modern transitional designs. The Gabby designers are taking a look at how people are living in their homes and designing pieces to beautifully fit their lifestyles. They’re also introducing more vintage coastal inspired designs that mix well with our outdoor furniture sister company, Summer Classics. Another big product introduction includes outdoor lighting designed by Gabby designers – a first for Gabby!
“Garden Party is our favorite event because it gives us a chance to show our customers how much we appreciate them,” says CEO Bew White. “And because both the Summer Classics and Gabby brands appeal to the same dealers and designers, Garden Party offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for our customers to shop both lines in one place.”
