Arhaus Set to Open October 30 at Avalon, Alpharetta

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - October 02, 2014) - Arhaus will open the doors to its newest store at the Avalon, 2830 Old Milton Parkway, Alpharetta, Ga., Thursday, October 30. The 14,500 sq. ft. single-story space will showcase lifestyle vignettes of handcrafted furniture and accessories, infused with the unexpected -- antiques from Indonesia and Paris, exotic and everyday fresh florals, and hand-painted murals.

Doors open at 10 a.m.

Customers are also invited to browse the store's endless lifestyle vignettes and complete a Wish List of must-have Arhaus designs to be registered to win one of three Arhaus Gift Cards: $500, $1,000 and $1,500 with a complimentary in-home design consultation to pull the looks-they-love together.

The three winners will be announced at the retailer's "official" grand opening celebration (and masquerade), which starts at 6 p.m. -- featuring complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

Reservations will be accepted at the store or online: arhaus.com/wishlist/alpharetta.

Abiding by the retailer's signature and successful footprint, the new Alpharetta store location will feature a combination of marble and oak floors, and hand-carved teak panels and doors. Center stage are the retailer's slipcovered, leather and fitted sofas, sectionals and chairs, dining tables and chairs, bedroom furniture and private label bedding, antiques and reproductions, outdoor furniture, library and office appropriate pieces as well as media centers, and an assortment of seasonally appropriate (and always changing) accessories and tableware.

Entirely exclusive to Arhaus, furniture and accessories are handmade by artisans all over the world. "Each piece is unique to our stores," says Founder, Chairman and CEO John Reed, "one-of-a-kind." And, anything labeled Arhaus is made with sustainability in mind. The retailer's Rainforest Policy, a commitment not to purchase pieces made of wood harvested from the world's endangered rainforests, dates back to 1986 and the first store location in downtown Cleveland.

Today, this policy has evolved. Arhaus will only source wood from vendors practicing sustainably and its artisan partners use recycled materials -- wood, metal and glass -- whenever possible.

Arhaus has a store location in Atlanta at Phipps Plaza, 3500 Peachtree Rd., NE.

"Furnishing a better world." This is our philosophy; it dates back to 1986 when father and son, Jack and John Reed, opened the first store location in Cleveland and vowed never to use wood from the world's endangered rainforests in the making of an Arhaus design. Today, nearly 50 percent of our collections are made of recycled material -- everything from glass to metals like copper and wood cast off from far off lands. To ensure our values are upheld, we work with artisans who share our earth conscious beliefs and use renewable and recycled materials when crafting pieces for our stores. Sustainably sourced timbers like teak, bamboo and mango -- grown for the sole purpose of building -- are used. And because we love a good story, we use reclaimed materials whenever possible, namely wood from countries tearing down dilapidated barns, shipyards and rural structures, and we refurbish one-of-a-kind antiques that we call Relics. To further minimize our impact on the environment, our stores, corporate offices and even delivery trucks operate at maximum energy efficiency and promotional pieces are printed using soy-based ink and on recycled paper.
