Wickes Furniture Company, Inc., an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., will be prominently featured at the 2006 Gallery of Homes, open to the public from June 30th until July 23rd at 203 Wrenwood in Elgin, IL. Wickes has fully furnished the $1.5 million show home for Tim Kobler Custom Homes, bringing in over $65,000 of room sets and accessories in creating a cohesive design. Wickes' own Visual Display Team, headed by Regional Visual Manager Cheryl Consolino, hand picked the selections featured in the home. Wickes Furniture representatives will be at the show home during the event, handing out coupons worth $100 in savings to anyone taking the tour. “The inspiration for the selected pieces came from Tiffany chandelier lighting already in the home that featured grapes and ivy”, said Consolino. “We selected most of the furniture from our own World Vineyards’ collection by Klaussner, which was a perfect complement to the brick and wood in the home.” The 4,400 square foot, four bedroom home is decorated in warm earth tones with splashes of deep purple. All rooms feature Wickes furniture groups and accessories, and the living room area features the Bradbury Manor set, produced by Broyhill and recently introduced at Wickes Furniture stores. "We are overly pleased with the way the furniture and decorations look in all of the rooms", said Tim Kobler of Tim Kobler Custom Homes. "Everything enhances the stylish elements already included in the design of the house." “We are excited to have been invited to be a part of the Gallery of Homes. We already have a lot of stylish products and are adding additional quality, name brand selections everyday,” stated John Disa, President and CEO of Wickes Furniture. “We wanted to showcase our furniture offerings in a real home setting, and hopefully, anyone who visits this home will be convinced to shop Wickes Furniture for stylish home furnishings.” Wickes Furniture is a Top 20 Furniture Retail Leader, serving customers for over 30 years and specializing in offering complete designer room packages with the best financing offers in the industry.
