Residents of the Keller-Alliance area have been watching construction for months, and now the time has come for Living Spaces to open its new showroom in far north Fort Worth. The furniture giant will open at 8640 Tehama Ridge Pkwy. on Friday, October 30, according to a release.
The 150,000-square-foot standalone store will be the West Coast brand's first Tarrant County store and third showroom in North Texas, after its local debut in Grand Prairie in May 2019 and a Frisco opening in August 2020.
“We are excited to be opening our fifth store in my home state of Texas,” says Grover Geiselman, CEO and founder of Living Spaces, in the release. “From a diverse, stylish, and well-priced assortment of furniture and décor, to unwavering customer service and kid-friendly attractions, our Fort Worth location is primed to become the top furniture shopping destination in the area. We want our guests to feel inspired and confident that they can transform their homes and improve their lives by shopping with us.”
The massive new store will serve as a major design destination for the region, the company says. In addition to showcasing many collections for the living room, dining room, bedroom, home office, outdoor, youth, and accessories categories, the Fort Worth location will include a kids’ fun room and climbing complex. Unlike other locations, it will not have a café.
The store comes well staffed with a team of design consultants who will help customers imagine and shop for thoughtful, well-priced designs. Choices include celebrity collections like the farmhouse-chic Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines and sophisticated pieces by Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent.
The store also will feature a group of four custom-built houses that showcase different lifestyles, from Modern Living to Rustic Living. The prototypes will help guests envision what their dream home could look like, the release says.
Other special perks include custom order upholstery at no extra charge; 3D room planning; and an Elements collection, which encompasses unique decor and furnishings sourced from around the globe.
Living Spaces was established in 2003 and calls La Mirada, California home. They tout themselves as the leading West Coast home furnishings retailer, known for offering a wide selection of indoor and outdoor furniture, décor, lighting, art, and unique pieces at affordable price-points. They design and manufacture an assortment of exclusive products that are available online and in-store, they say.
Fort Worth is one of three stores Living Spaces says it plans to open within the next year and is the retailer’s 27th location overall.
Far north Fort Worth, home to Alliance Town Center and Presidio Town Crossing shopping complexes, is somewhat of a mecca for big furniture and design stores. Living Spaces will compete with nearby Rooms to Go, Ashley HomeStore, and Haverty's, as well as home decor shops Kirkland's, At Home, and HomeGoods. A Hemispheres furniture showroom recently closed.
As the new store is opening amid the coronavirus pandemic, customers can expect special health and safety protocols but no grand opening events. All visitors to the showroom must wear a mask. Hours will be 10 am-8 pm Monday through Sunday.
