Pompano Beach just got a bit more glamorous! On February 5, CORT unveiled its stunning new rental showroom and clearance center to the Pompano Beach, Fla., community with a public open house and a private evening celebration. During the grand opening, more than 200 guests attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher, members of the Chamber of Commerce and special guest of honor Celia Glasser, a Folds of Honor scholarship recipient, and her husband Army Private Jeffrey Glasser. CORT is the corporate partner and exclusive furnishings provider of The Folds of Honor Foundation, whose mission is to empower deserving military families with educational support by providing scholarships for children and spouses of fallen or disabled military service men and women.
Showroom Design Features
The Pompano Beach showroom features an updated counter, customer consultative area and housewares fixtures. The details and finishes give the showroom a very contemporary Miami look and feel. The floor features three different finishes to designate the different customer groups. For example, a grey wood plank was used in the residential space, grey Italian ceramic tile in the customer consultative area and a grey broadloom in the office area.
Four different textures were used to help define the spaces and provide energy throughout the showroom. In the residential area the paper is silver and white Mica brings in texture and shine. An accent wall comes to life with natural capiz shell in platinum, perfect for any high-end coastal area. The workplace area stands out with shiny white strie, a popular form of faux painting using glaze and paint brushes to create a soft natural striped texture. These finishes make for a very monochromatic, luxurious showroom that allows the furnishings to pop!
The showroom opened with CORT’s new 2014 lineup. The very contemporary brown sofa and orange chaises accented with turquoise wows the customer as they open the front door. The comfortable grey modular with large white piping gives the customer the flexibility to design their own, but also begs them to curl up in it. The entire new Workplace lineup was also added to help the office customer better find solutions to their needs. Whether they are hoteling their workforce or prefer a more open workplace or private office, this showroom has the answers.
