Furniture World News on

Leather Italia USA has recently leased showroom space in the Atrium Furniture Mall located at 430 South Main Street.  The building has been successfully transitioning from strictly retail to a wholesale/retail showroom concept with wholesale tenant Leather Italia joining Sansegal – China and others.    Leather Italia is a premium quality collection of fine leather furniture, who is one of just a handful of the better leather manufacturers that grade and finish their own raw leather hides. Only premium grade Italian top grain leather is used and the frames exceed the industry standards for quality and construction. Luxury automobile manufacturers like Mercedes Benz and Porsche use the same type of seating in their leather interiors.   Sansegal who is a supplier to the upper middle US market for Chinese manufactured bedroom, dining and occasional products was the first wholesale tenant in the building two years ago and has seen success with their 10,000 square feet.  “The Atrium is the best value in the market,” says Chris Pfaff, General Manager of Sansegal, formerly CEO of Thomasville Furniture Industries.  “All of our top retail and OEM customers visit because everyone knows where the Atrium is.  Free on-site parking during Market makes it easy for them.”   Jim Wall, the Atrium’s building manager who landed the tenant says, “Being in business as long as I have—for 50 years in various aspects of the furniture industry—I know exhibitors will see the benefit of market to market leases for only $5 per market.”   “Our leasing strategy is to create an overall value proposition that gives companies a chance to make their showroom a profit center throughout the year doing both wholesale and retail out of the same showroom,” says listing broker Audie Cashion, President of Alpha World Properties, LLC.   About Alpha World Properties, LLC   Alpha World Properties based in High Point, North Carolina, is a highly personalized, commercial real estate brokerage firm focused exclusively on fast-track marketing, property and site location, and sale leaseback transactions.
