Our team traveled the country to help Ashley Furniture Homestores unveil new showrooms in multiple states. Ashley Furniture ranks as the top-selling furniture brand in North America and the largest home furniture manufacturer in the world. While Ashley’s retail showrooms launched in mid-nineties, the brand continues to build new stores throughout the country.
Beginning in 2014, Ashley Furniture partnered with Kent Companies to provide concrete staining and polishing services to new construction and renovation projects across the country.
The Kent Companies team traveled to stores in Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Kansas to support projects led by multiple general contractors. The polishing and staining projects ranged from 6,750 square feet to 35,000 square feet in size. The partnership with Kent Companies resulted in several successes for Ashley Furniture.
The Kent team met tight deadlines on new construction projects to ensure subsequent trades started work on schedule. For renovation projects, work was often completed after retail hours to allow the stores to maintain normal operations.
Attention to detail ensured the furniture and accessories remaining in Ashley’s showrooms were not damaged. The Ashley showroom in Sarasota, Florida presented a unique challenge. The Kent team applied specialized products, tools and a problem-solving approach to polish concrete that was previously deemed too soft for polishing.
As a result, the showroom met the consistent display standards set for every store across the country.
