The Dallas Market Center is opening a smart home showroom, Smarter Living by Design. The permanent showcase will feature leading technology for residential, commercial and hospitality projects from 13 innovative companies including Samsung.
The open-daily showroom will debut in June 2019 in time for the June Total Home & Gift Market (June 19-25) and Lightovation, the Dallas International Lighting Show (June 19-22).
Smarter Living by Design will include a selection of brands spanning home technology categories from premier lighting, sound and appliances to artificial intelligence. The showcase will be the first to unite advanced technology from Europe, Asia, and the U.S. in order to demonstrate how technology can seamlessly and stylishly integrate into the modern home.
Additional services to be offered exclusively in Smarter Living by Design include education, training, and installation to enhance the products on display and support the retail and design communities.
The showcase will be coordinated by HomeTronics, a Dallas-based custom electronics integrator and will feature a series of five custom-built lifestyle vignettes: Family Room, Master Suite, Outdoor Cooking, Outdoor Living, and an Interactive Technology Showcase. Each living space will be updated regularly and serve as a practical demonstration space and design laboratory.
“This unparalleled showroom is a groundbreaking effort to meet the progressive needs of interior designers and retailers, both of which are increasingly interested in providing smart home resources for their customers,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Technology is a logical progression from our global leadership in design and lighting, and we welcome the trade to experience the only market center showcase of enhanced living through technology.”
