G. Romano signs IMC showroom leases in High Point and Las Vegas PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   

LAS VEGAS (16 July 2012) – Canadian contemporary upholstery maker G. Romano has signed leases for permanent showrooms in the World Market Center here and in the International Home Furnishings Center in High Point, buildings owned and operated International Market Centers (IMC).

In a statement, Rick Lovegrove – who runs the Montreal-based company with his wife, Natalina – said the Las Vegas Market and the High Point Market have been “consistently positive” for their brand.

“A combination of elements has allowed us to commit to permanent showrooms. With a fashion-driven product such as ours, we always have new introductions, colors and fabrics. A larger permanent space will allow us to show these new products along with existing collections,” he said, adding, “Our dealers needed to see more of us at market.”

In Las Vegas, Romano’s new 2,000 square-foot showroom will be located in space 701 of Building B, on the Modern Trends floor. It will open for the first time at the upcoming summer edition of the Las Vegas Market, which will begin its semi-annual five-day run on July 30.

The company had been showing in the home furnishings temporaries at Las Vegas Market since 2006.

In High Point, the company has renewed its existing showroom space at D708 in the International Home Furnishings Center building.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Lovegrove said the new Las Vegas showroom will incorporate some vintage elements including framed photography of founder Gino Romano and some shots of the company’s Montreal factory. The company also will debut new upholstery collections and new fabrics.

Lovegrove also said the merger of IMC properties in High Point and Las Vegas has been a positive move that has helped companies like his reach a greater audience.

“We’re not a big corporation, but a family owned, design-oriented manufacturer,” Lovegrove said. “But, at the same time we bring great product to market and IMC sees value in our type of company and has welcomed us with a lot of support.”

Romano also shows at the Canadian Home Furnishings Market in Toronto each January.

At total of 18 Canadian industry resources are expected to exhibit at the upcoming market.
