WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (July 5, 2017) RELEASE PDF – CityPlace is enhancing its home furnishings sector with the addition of Italian powerhouse furniture brand, Natuzzi Italia. Renowned for its sleek, contemporary styles, Natuzzi is now open in a 9,000 sq. ft. storefront on Rosemary Avenue just south of the Cheesecake Factory.
“The addition of Natuzzi to the home furnishings landscape at CityPlace adds a whole new dimension in that retail sector, with Restoration Hardware’s 60,000-sq.ft. gallery-style showroom about to open as well. CityPlace and the renowned art and antiques retailers along South Dixie Highway now makes downtown West Palm Beach a major luxury home furnishings destination,” said Dennis Grady, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches. “We’re delighted to welcome both of these leading international brands to our city.”
Natuzzi is Italy’s largest furniture house with 1,200 stores around the world. All of the products are manufactured in Italy and Natuzzi designs and sells their unique collections of sofas, armchairs, furniture and home furnishing accessories. The progressive brand is a market leader among luxury home goods and the company views Florida as a prime location for expansion. Other locations in Florida include Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Orlando, Naples, Pinecrest and Miami’s Design District.
“The United States represents a great market opportunity for our brand and we are continuing with the efforts to move quickly to expand our presence,” said Nazzario Pozzi, the company’s Global Retail Chief. “These stores are being located and managed to deliver Pasquale Natuzzi’s vison of a new buying experience for our customers through the careful coordination of whole room furnishings to the type of tools and training of our sales staff. This is the way we can help customers better than ever before with furnishing their homes.”
Mirrored after its Paramus, New Jersey flagship, the new CityPlace store features furnishings for every room of the home with design rooted in classic Italian style. Many of the Natuzzi Italia collections are described as a combination of modern art and architecture married to Italian innovation, brilliant function and a creative mix of materials, finishes, premium leathers and cutting edge fabrics.
“CityPlace is a unique retail destination with a mix of exceptional tenants that create a powerful draw, making it an ideal location for Natuzzi,” said Gopal Rajegowda, senior vice president of Related Companies. “The Natuzzi Italia brand is a world-renown luxury home designer, and with a new emphasis on home and home furnishings at CityPlace, we are now the center of a booming luxury home market in Palm Beach County and beyond.”
