Welcome to the 2009 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market!

It's a New Year with new collections in a new AmericasMart showroom.

Summer Classics® is celebrating the New Year with the grand opening of

our expanded Atlanta showroom (located on the 10th floor, Building 2,

West Wing) and the addition of four entirely new collections. In tough

economic times, we are staying positive and working hard as we gear up for


For example, we have recently introduced a direct import program, a premier

product program and a new fabric line and customization program,

all in an effort serve our customers in the best way possible.

Part of what our designers have developed for this year includes a wowinspiring

woven teak design for our new YachtTM collection, an enhanced

N-dura® clearcoat process for greater UV resistance in our resin wicker

and cast aluminum pieces, and a greatly expanded number of ColoresTM fabric

colors and color combinations for our custom cushions.

The new expanded showroom affords SC® the space to show many pieces

from each of our 29 collections, as well as introduce the market to the

new SC HomeTM indoor line, set to debut in 2010.

We love to make our showrooms a place where people feel at home, and as

Editor and Publisher of Hearth & Home magazine, Richard Wright, said,

"Summer Classics is one of two or three showrooms that you want to go

into because you know you are going to see something beautiful and romantic,

that you would covet and want in your own home."

In addition to Atlanta, we relocated our Chicago showroom to the new

Market Square of the Chicago Merchandise Mart.

Our hard work has paid off, as Summer Classics was awarded "Most Fashionable

Retailer" and "Best Overall Merchandising, Multistore" by Casual Living

magazine for its 2008 Merchandising Awards.

We are glad you're here and hope to see you on the 10th floor.

Enjoy the show!
