LuxeHome continues to grow with the addition of the Pella Corporation, who in early winter 2015, will open a 7,000-square foot custom-designed showroom, and Lefroy Brooks and Cooper & Graham, who recently renovated and expanded their showroom, both in LuxeHome. “Pella adds a major new product category to the roster of premier kitchen, bath and building products boutiques that make up LuxeHome,” said Katherine Flaherty, vice president, Vornado | Merchandise Mart. “The addition of Pella further establishes LuxeHome as the preeminent destination for homeowners, interior designers, residential architects and luxury custom home builders to source products for home building and renovation.” In addition to the extensive lineup of premier brands, each boutique offers knowledgeable designers who are available to assist with all phases of each design project. And when planning a visit, LuxeHome offers a personalized concierge service. The LuxeHome Concierge will assist your and your clients in finding specific products and brands. The LuxeHome Concierge does this by guiding guests through showrooms, and will set up appointments with showrooms for a hands-on product experience. “We understand the demands on today’s builders to provide luxury brand names and high-end amenities,” said Flaherty. “LuxeHome brings together builders with the brands buyers want, and makes it easy for both builder and buyer to experience the products hands-on.”

Conveniently located on the Orleans Street side of the building in the Design Resource Center, Suite 163, the LuxeHome Concierge can help builders customize a shopping experience for themselves, their clients and their interior designers. The concierge is available daily, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. To schedule your next appointment at LuxeHome, contact the Concierge at 312-527-7939 or luxehome@ mmart.com.
