Five Retailers Honored By Lexington Home Brands

Furniture World News on

Lexington Home Brands announced that five retailers proved their talent by winning the Trump Home® National Retail Display Contest, sponsored by Lexington. Contest winners include Louis Shanks in Austin, Texas; Baer’s Furniture in Pompano Beach, Fla.; DeBoer’s in Toronto; Furnitureland South in High Point, N.C.; and Hurwitz-Mintz in Metairie, La. “The winning retailers truly captured the Trump Home lifestyle of affordable luxury,” says Phil Haney, president and CEO. “Each dealer defined its own look within the brand, showcasing unique displays of Central Park and Westchester with luxury and flair. We were very impressed by the caliber of the entries overall, but the winning displays were just incredible.” The winners will receive a three-night stay at the luxurious new Trump International Hotel and Tower in Las Vegas for the upcoming July market, and will have the opportunity to meet Donald Trump. At that Las Vegas Market, Lexington will unveil its newest Trump Home® collection, Mar-a-Lago, in the company’s permanent showroom at the World Market Center, Building C Space 1100. The retail displays were judged on creativity, visual appeal and brand translation. The winners were chosen by Lexington’s Director of Interior Design Linda King, The Trump Organization’s Vice President of Global Licensing Sara Nemerov, and a committee of judges from within both companies. Entries were required to showcase full lifestyle presentations of both Central Park and Westchester, the collections introduced last year by Trump Home® and Lexington Home Brands.
