One of the highlights of the evening was getting to spend time with Martin Truex Jr. and Erik Jones, the NASCAR drivers of cars #78 and #77 for Furniture Row Racing. Gathering in The Showroom’s man cave inspired gallery called “The Retreat,” guests got to see actual race cars and chat with the stars of the racing team.

The Showroom Gala’s main purpose was to wow the guests with the incredible galleries in the retail space. People got to view gorgeous furnishings and decor from designers such as Christopher Guy, Baker, Bernhardt, Lexington, Michael Amini, and many more. Patrons were also surprised by the unique boutique spaces such as a jewelry shop and a section for pet accessories.

The Showroom Gala had a live band, The Beaus, play at the event. Everyone enjoyed the rock string act that incorporates the class and elegance of a string trio with a classic rock twist.

There were several speeches about the long path that Furniture Row team members took to open The Showroom @Furniture Row. “So much work, heart, and love went into this project,” says Amy Foster, lead gallery buyer. “As we were creating The Showroom, there were various obstacles we encountered, including times when we were told that a designer store of this size and complexity would be impossible. But everyone in the company believed in the dream and kept persevering. The result was well worth all of the hardships along the way.”



Overall The Showroom Gala was a huge success, and there are so many great things in store for the luxury furniture store. If you are looking for more photos from the event, visit The Showroom’s Facebook page here.
