Creative Co-Op expands footprint for Winter Market, shifting some Gardens exhibitors
Creative Co-Op announced it will expand its Atlanta Market showroom in time for the winter 2024 edition, taking place Jan. 16-22 at AmericasMart Atlanta. The expansion, which brings Creative Co-Op’s showroom to nearly 40,000 square feet in total, enables growth of Finch + Fennel, the new gourmet specialty food line introduced in January, and a creates a new showroom shopping experience on Building 2’s tenth floor.
“Creative Co-Op is one of Atlanta Market’s Building 2 anchor tenants, and this nearly 10,000 square foot expansion represents the brand’s commitment to and confidence in Atlanta Market,” said Dorothy Belshaw ANDMORE executive vice president, chief growth officer. “We are delighted to partner with Creative Co-Op’s team to expand not only their presence at market, but also their return on investment in the market.”
This expansion also creates new opportunities for exhibitors in The Gardens, Atlanta Market’s destination for home garden décor on the ninth and 10th floors of Building 2 of AmericasMart.
As part of the tenth-floor renovation, ANDMORE will fill-in the two-story circular water feature currently in the center of the Gardens. The opening will be squared to allow for installation of structural steel and a concrete slab. Work began at the conclusion of the summer 2023 Atlanta Market and will be completed in time for Winter 2024.
As Creative Co-Op moves into the expansion space, three current 10th floor Gardens exhibitors will shift into new, glass-walled showrooms: Alpine (garden décor), Campo de’ Fiori (terra cotta pots and planters) and Garden Age (stone figurines and landscape décor). Additionally, four exhibitors will relocate onto The Gardens’ ninth floor: Entryways/Divine Home (pillows, throws and tabletop), Jatex (outdoor firepits), Le Primitif (handcrafted art from Haiti) and The Pottery Patch (planters and fountains from Mexico, Italy and Spain). Overall, The Gardens feature some 70 exhibitors in more than 80,000 square feet of exhibition space.
“This remerchandising will align Creative Co-Op and the spirit of The Gardens to create one common artistic vision and cohesive sourcing destination,” added Belshaw. “These changes will make the tenth floor a must-see this January.”
