The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, a South Florida retail destination, announced that it has opened a Natuzzi Italia flagship gallery, the first of its kind in Florida.

The location’s grand opening will be in September, 2011. As the largest Natuzzi Italia flagship gallery in the United States (8,000 sq. ft.), it will be located located on the mall upper level above P.F. Chang’s and Seasons 52.

The gallery will feature Natuzzi Italia's luxurious leather furniture crafted in Italy, including exclusive custom-tailored 100% made in Italy sofa solutions. Consumers will also be able to find a total look in design, style and quality incorporating armchairs, dining tables, rugs, lamps, accessories and more.

The Natuzzi Italia store will offer a typical furniture retail experience. Upon entering the store, customers will feel like they have been invited into someone’s living room. Twenty-five settings of living room options will make for endless possibilities - all customizable, direct from Italy, and at a tremendous value.

“The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale continues to offer a great shopping experience with a fine collection of retailers and top restaurants,” said Mark Trouba, general manager at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. “The opening of Natuzzi Italia will only boost the already celebrated shopping experience found at The Galleria for residents and visitors alike.”

This is the second flagship Natuzzi Italia gallery to open in the U.S. The original gallery is in New York City.
