Lexington Opens Design Center in Showroom
By Home Furnishings Business in on March 2007
Lexington Home Brands has added a 6,500-square-foot Design Center to the third floor of its Thomasville, N.C., showroom.
The creative operations center makes its official debut during next weeks High Point Market.
The Design Center houses product development, interior design and engineering teams in one sleek and contemporary space that is flooded with natural light.
Linda King, director of interior design for Lexington Home Brands, said, The space itself is inspiring. It fosters creativity and its much more integrated to have product and design people sharing ideas in a central location.
The center includes a conference room, a materials library, a publications library, and a war room where designers can work with sketches and inspiration boards during product development. Dealers also will utilize the space as they collaborate with the Lexington design team on new product design ideas, develop samples and finalize development.
There was a bit of disconnect between our design teams before we opened the new center, said Phil Haney, president and CEO. The space now offers an opportunity for sharing ideas and creativity, producing more cohesive product designs and development.
