Art Van Celebrates Polaris Opening, VIP Preview Party
Art Van Furniture has announced the grand opening of its new showroom in Polaris, Ohio, celebrating with a private VIP preview party that included more than 400 guests.
The 70,000-square-foot, two-story store features a striking glass exterior and an open, contemporary floor plan showcasing six primary lifestyle collections (casual, urban, farmhouse, modern, traditional and mid-century).
This is Art Van Furniture’s second showroom in the state to be built from the ground up. Celebrity guests Cindy Crawford and Nigel Barker mingled with attendees, shared their inspiration for their furniture lines, Cindy Crawford Home and NB2, and took part in an official ribbon-cutting ceremony alongside Art Van Furniture President and CEO, Ron Boire, company executives and team members.
Performance speed artist, David Santia, wowed the crowd, including Crawford, by painting a striking, larger-than-life portrait of her in less than seven minutes. The painting was auctioned for $12,500 and, when added to a $10,000 check from Art Van Furniture, a total of $22,500 was donated to The Childhood League Center in Columbus, which serves children under six years old with developmental delays.
