ARCADIA, WI - Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. (Ashley) will launch their new Outdoor by Ashley collections in a new showroom this July at the Chicago Merchandise Mart.

“We are extremely excited to have a permanent home at TheMart,” said Todd Wanek, president and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. “Our outdoor business has been very strong and our debut in Chicago last year in the 7th floor exhibit hall was exceptional. Now we’re taking it to the next level and want to provide our customers with a great shopping experience in a comfortable setting; we believe TheMart is a great venue to sell our line.”

“We are thrilled that Ashley Furniture has established a permanent presence at the Mart. Ashley’s presence here will further broaden the already wide variety of outdoor products available at the ICFA Preview and Casual Market Chicago,” said Byron Morton, vice president of Leasing, TheMart.

“We are going to kick-off the opening of our new showroom with a large assortment of new collections that will be ready to ship by January, said Andy Sokol, vice president, Merchandising for Outdoor by Ashley. “We’ve been working really hard to bring new and exciting collections to market with the fashion and value that Ashley is known for. Plus, we will be showcasing our best sellers that are in stock now, and will be for the rest of the year, so buyers can plan for both 2019 and for 2020.”
