Thursday Dec 6, 2012

Dallas, TX - Cantoni, the modern furniture retailer and design studio, will introduce a Natuzzi Italia showroom as part of the Flagship's 20,000 square foot expansion this winter. The Natuzzi Italia store-within-a-store concept is exclusive to Cantoni in Dallas.

"Cantoni's partnership with Natuzzi Italia delivers on our 28 year commitment to bringing our clients the best in cutting-edge modern design, said Michael Wilkov, Cantoni Founder and CEO. "Natuzzi Group-Italy's largest furniture manufacturer-is known around the world as a leader in leather furniture and Natuzzi Italia represents the finest of Natuzzi on a global level. Natuzzi Italia designs are merchandised with a comprehensive range of high-style furnishings for a whole home concept that epitomizes the excellence, fashion and quality of products designed and crafted in Italy." 

Cantoni will mark the opening with an intimate preview party in partnership with Modern Luxury Interiors Texas on Thursday, December 6th. The exclusive evening event, hosted in the new Natuzzi Italia space, will celebrate Italian design and boast live cooking demonstrations in the store's fully functioning Bontempi Cucine kitchen by renowned chef Anthony Van Camp of SER Steak & Spirits. Guests will also enjoy fine Italian wines and cocktails by Ultimate Vodka & Patron, along with a special performance by award-winning quartet, DSQ Electric. 

Cantoni’s 4,000 square-foot glass-encased Natuzzi Italia shop-in-shop will feature the Iuxury label’s sleek collections including the Plaza, Frank, Opus, Savoy, Brio, Wave, Sound, Avana, Surround, Releve, Cambre and Opera. Patrons will be greeted by warm and welcoming hues of natural materials and precious timbers that comprise the foundation of each unique installation in the Natuzzi Italia space.

Each vignette, artfully appointed, will feature distinctive furniture collections, case goods and accessories, hand-crafted in Italy using precious timbers, the luxurious leathers and coveted fabrics. 
"The Natuzzi Italia store-within-a-store concept is unique to Cantoni and to the Dallas marketplace," said Brad Cates, Senior Vice President, Natuzzi Americas.

"As we move forward with aggressive growth plans for Natuzzi Italia in key markets, we are particularly excited to partner with a retail leader like Cantoni because it provides great consumer exposure to the Natuzzi Italia brand inside one of the industry’s most recognized and respected lifestyle furniture retailers. No one understands the desires of design-conscious shoppers in the Dallas market better than Cantoni."

Cantoni’s Natuzzi Italia showroom will open to the public on Friday, December 7th. Shoppers will find that the new Natuzzi Italia installation is one part of the 20,000-square-foot expansion that will boast new showrooms including a sleep studio, outdoor entertaining, flooring and among other launches slated to open this winter.
