PHILADELPHIA - Outdoor furniture manufacturer Alfresco Home has signed a lease with Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc., for a 2,200-sq.-ft. showroom in Chicago's Merchandise Mart, the company announced.

The new showroom located on the 16th floor, suite 16-120, will feature Alfresco Home's cast and extruded aluminum, Everwoven all-weather wicker and wrought iron marble mosaic collections.

"We are very pleased to join the extremely talented group of outdoor casual living vendors that are part of this excellent industry," said Joseph Cilio, founder and CEO of Alfresco Home. "We are most excited to not only provide convenient Chicago access to our current customers, but also to introduce Alfresco Home to many new retailers."

Additionally, Alfresco Home will feature its bistro collections, marble mosaic accent collections and other outdoor accessories. The July Casual Preview Show also marks the official launch and introduction of Alfresco Home's Fornetto wood-fired oven and smoker.

"As we begin our 10th season at Alfresco Home we feel that taking a showroom on 16 helps us serve our international dealer base more completely," Cilio said. "We are very excited about the future for both Alfresco Home and our customers."
