Dutailier expands AvantGlide

 19 April 2017     HGO Staff 

HIGH POINT, North Carolina – Glider rocker specialist Dutailier will add two new models, Charlotte and Austin, to its AvantGlide collection when the spring edition of the High Point Market opens here on Saturday morning.

“Charlotte is a wonderful addition to this collection,” the company, which is based in Saint-Pie, Quebec, said in a statement. “With a slightly bohemian style, this chair puts your fast-paced life on pause for a few minutes. Its streamlined curves and lines come together in perfect harmony to create a look that will blend in with the coziest of decors.”

Austin balances geometric angles with a contemporary look. It stands out with bold lines and exotic elegance. Inspired by Texas’s arid environment, it will fit into more sober decors.

Dutailier will add Charlotte (seen here) to its AvantGlide collection of glider rockers at this spring’s High Point Market.Both of these chairs combine comfort and technology with a swivel base, adjustable headrest and integrated Technogel seat support. Each chair can be paired with a matching gliding ottoman.

“The new AvantGlide gliders introduced last spring were such a hit that we had no choice but to expand our offer to meet demand,” Dutailier executive vice president David Fontaine noted. “Fans of the transitional style will love the Charlotte and Austin gliders and their perfect blend of the traditional and contemporary.

“Today’s consumers want original and stylish products with significant added value. That’s our forte. Our partnership with the Italian company Technogel is a good example, as it enables us to offer unique, avant-garde gliders,” he added.

More than 15 AvantGlide gliders will be displayed in Dutailier’s new showroom, located at H-511 in the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC). This newly renovated 1,600 square-foot exhibition area will host six displays of the collection inspired by the latest decor trends.

The company is also expected to show at the upcoming Canadian Furniture Show, which will be held at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario from May 26 to 28.

Founded in 1977, Dutailier is a family-run company with 180 employees that manufactures over 40,000 gliders annually in its two Canadian plants.
