Late-Breaking Additions to Dallas Total Home & Gift Market Include Trendsetting Brands
—Hundreds of hot lines and new brands including Porch View, Log Cabin Apothecary, and Barefoot Dreams to debut in Dallas at the first market of the year—
DALLAS—December 21, 2020— Dallas Market Center, the leading lifestyle marketplace for retailers and interior designers, announces the addition of trendsetting brands debuting with hundreds of other lines at Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, January 6-12, 2021. The extensive lineup of hot new products and showrooms will premiere at the first market of the year—where buyers will be the first to survey trends and discover profitable goods.
“Dallas continues to lead the way in showcasing the hottest new products and brands,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “During the first market of the year, buyers will see it first and place orders first for on-trend gifts and stylish home decor. Whether retailers need in-stock items now or are planning ahead, we will give them the best opportunity to discover what they need to succeed in the new year.”
Across the 5 million square foot marketplace of permanent showrooms and Temps, highlights include:
Porch View Todd Smith and Charlie Groppetti—the visionaries behind farmhouse style—make their global debut of new showroom Porch View (WTC 280). The brand offers home furnishings and accessories in a relaxed, casual aesthetic.
Barefoot Dreams. A purveyor of ultra-soft blankets, throws, pillows, robes, loungewear, apparel, candles, and accessories, Barefoot Dreams is a favorite among buyers representing five-star resorts, major department stores, and upscale boutiques. New to campus, the latest collection can be shopped at Goetz (WTC 211).
Log Cabin Apothecary. It’s impossible not to be drawn to the rugged, artisan appeal of Texas-based Log Cabin Apothecary, a small-batch CBD company specializing in all-natural bath bombs, tinctures, and pain-relieving topical ointments. Travelers in search of medicinal salves and herbal remedies formerly sought help from the owner’s ancestors on the same property, and the brand pays tribute to that heritage. Find products in NextGen Dallas (TM 1028, 1034, 2040).
MacKenzie Childs. For more than 35 years, talented MacKenzie-Childs artisans and designers have handcrafted ceramic and enamel tableware, furniture, home accessories, and more, with a vibrant, pattern-filled aesthetic that has amassed a cult following. Buyers will now find Glow by MacKenzie-Childs and Patience Brewster by MacKenzie-Childs at Patrick & Co. (TM 2927).
Ann Gish Luxury Linens. The company’s exquisitely detailed and finely made bed linens are frequently used by leading interior designers, can be found in the homes of numerous celebrities, and have appeared in TV shows and movies, and on Broadway. Practically elegant, they can now be found in Luxe Gift Temps in the Trade Mart in addition to her collection with Global Views (IHDC 1D209).
BrüMate. One of the hottest insulated drinkware lines on the market (and one of the fastest-growing companies in America), BrüMate has expanded to fill a 1,200-square-foot space in Cliff Price & Company (TM 1860). The company’s mission to “create a world without warm beer, ruined cocktails, and stale wine” translates to insulated wine glasses and bottles; slim and wide can holders; highball and “margtini” glasses; and even an updated spin on the vintage canteen—all in an extensive range of cool colors and patterns.
Teaspressa. This beautifully simplistic line of all-natural, organic teas is a Nordstrom staple and “Shark Tank” veteran. Little wonder: sippers get the best of both words with teas that offer the full-bodied, robust flavor of coffee—and even a comparable caffeine content. Found in a new showroom in Gourmet Market (WTC 180), Teaspressa also has a line of sought-after cocktail and hot cocoa sugar cubes that instantly transform into drinks.
Holiball. These brightly hued, oversize Christmas ornaments—also seen on “Shark Tank,” where they drew the favor of Mark Cuban—are a stylish alternative to the average inflatable decoration. Lightweight, UV-resistant, and available in multiple colors and sizes (and now in the Temps, WTC 12-1603), they instantly imbue both interiors and outdoor spaces with holiday cheer.
These brands are just a few examples among hundreds of new lines and showrooms including Be Home (TM 2301-05), Grill Your Ass Off (Cliff Price & Co., TM 1800), Authentic Models (Cliff Price & Co. TM 1800), Taste-CBD (Temps, WTC 12-1414), CliC Eyewear (Temps, WTC 12-2124), Accent de Ville (Ivystone, WTC 236), Bourbon Barrel Foods (Ivystone, WTC 236), Dock & Bay (Ivystone WTC 236), Coola (Portico Collection, WTC 631), Homesick (Portico Collection, WTC 631), Scout Curated Wears (Portico Collection, WTC 631), Popsockets (Portico Collection, WTC 631), Pourtions (Road Runners TOLA, TM 1521, TM 1743), Lil ‘O’ Blossom (Road Runners TOLA, TM 1521, TM 1743), and more.
The Gallery (IHDC 1D202), Dallas Market Center’s shared showroom of stylish home décor resources, will also feature exciting new exhibitors. Benjamin Moore will debut a color wall of paint samples as a resource for daily buyers and designers in search of swatches to guide product and textile selection. Kelly Butler Home will offer her curated selection of antiques. Buyers will also find works by artist Shima Shanti, who experiments with beeswax and fire to create impressionistic paintings of sky and sea.
Buyers will also find a range of new showrooms on the seventh floor for immediate goods and fine jewelry, including 4B Custom Designs (WTC 7042), Capo & Co. Fine Diamonds and Jewelry (WTC 7935), Feste Sales (WTC 7450), No Crap In It (WTC 7032), and Pink Panache (WTC 7143).
In addition to the permanent showrooms, a full marketplace of Temps will be presented in January. The Temps at Total Home & Gift Market (January 6-9) will showcase hundreds of new and returning exhibitors. Buyers will explore four Temps neighborhoods: Trade Mart 1 will feature Luxe Gift Temps; on WTC 12 will be Gift, Home & Design Temps; on WTC 13 will be Apparel & Fashion Accessories; and in Market Hall will be Vintage Home & Décor, Antiques, Cash & carry, and Artisan Cash & Carry.
Dallas is first in January with Total Home & Gift Market taking place January 6-12 and Temps January 6-9; Apparel & Accessories Market takes place January 12-15; KidsWorld January 12-15; the Dallas premiere of the largest Western and English trade event: WESA’s International Western/English Apparel & Equipment Trade Show takes place January 14-17; and Dallas Men’s Show takes place January 31-February 2.
Supporting the comfort, health and safety of all attendees, the market center continues measures that began earlier in the summer and will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Those protocols include mandatory face covering and temperature screening for every person entering the marketplace every day. Other efforts include low contact entry via the Market FastPass, which saw a dramatic adoption in the summer, as well as enhanced cleaning with hospital grade products, hundreds of hand sanitizing stations, limited food service, no gatherings, and signage for social distancing. Along with these new steps, there are safety measures that are part of the natural design of the marketplace: open parking, large entryways, quick registration in multiple areas, wide hallways, multiple escalators to each floor, and showrooms with controlled access to allow for the appropriate distance between customers.
