A few of the Lori Wiles Design designers took a trip down to Atlanta, Georgia this spring to check out the Kwalu showroom. Kwalu is a furniture company specializing in healthcare and assisted living. Their pieces are versatile and good-looking, they function well, and are nearly indestructible. So when we were invited down for a tour of the showroom we took advantage of the opportunity to check out everything they had to offer.

Before heading to the showroom we enjoyed dinner and a lovely stay at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia. We spent time relaxing in their beautiful outdoor area enjoying perfect weather!
Day two was off to the showroom. We walked a tour of the showroom, discussing and trying out much of the furniture. Then we enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by Zoës Kitchen, and viewed a presentation about the company. We learned about the construction of the furniture and the benefits of giving up real wood furniture for Kwalu’s durable, high- impact-resilient polymer furniture. It stays looking new for an incredibly long time. We were even encouraged to swing at a conference room chair with a metal bat. The most damage we could do was a small scratch that could be buffed out in a few seconds.

Last we searched through Kwalu’s huge collection of fabric books, ordered tons of samples, and took off to catch our plane home. It was a very  beneficial, fun trip!
