Gabby, Summer Classics to showcase in new High Point showroom

HIGH POINT — Gabby and Summer Classics will unveil its new 20,000-plus-square-foot showroom at next week’s High Point Market.

The new showroom, located at 333 N. Hamilton St., is comprised of four individual buildings that have been joined over the years.

“The new High Point Showroom is a spectacular space,” said William White, president. “This showroom will allow us to fully represent all of the beautiful indoor and outdoor products we offer in a much larger — and more brand appropriate — environment.”

For the first time, the Gabby/Summer Classics showroom will feature a large outdoor patio to display Summer Classics products, as well as a small courtyard visible from the front entrance. The main patio will be covered completely with a canopy that incorporates sliding Textilene roof panels.

Inside, the new space features natural brick walls; exposed original roof trusses, beams and wood decking; and in the primary building at the entrance a ceiling height of more than 15 feet.

The High Point showroom also includes the company’s brand-signature Moorish Arches, three built-in bar areas, a large catering kitchen with commercial refrigeration and cooking equipment.

The company is working on a master plan for the next phases of buildout,
