Gabby, Summer Classics star in new dual-brand retail format

The first combined Gabby & Summer Classics store recently opened its doors in Annapolis, Maryland, and has already played host to hundreds of designers and design-minded guests as they shop, according to Gabriella White LLC, the family-owned furniture manufacturer based in Pelham, Alabama, that owns the brands.

The Annapolis location is the first in a series of next-generation retail stores expanding across the United States over the next few years. Formerly known as Summer Classics Home, the new stores feature separate entries for Summer Classics — timeless luxury outdoor furniture — and Gabby — inspiring and eclectic indoor furniture. Additionally, shoppers will find homewares and accessories, as well as Wendy Jane performance fabrics and soft furnishings. 


The new store is located at 1910 Towne Centre Blvd., Suite 100, and the design and shopping experience is based on client feedback from the company’s 36-year history in wholesale, contract and retail furniture sales.

“We have 19 locations throughout the country and have learned from our extensive research that more people want to find Gabby and Summer Classics in their hometowns,” says William White, CEO of Gabriella White. “We asked, we listened, we developed and now we’re giving guests more of what they love. We felt that Annapolis — with its sophistication, heritage and a regular influx of visitors — was the perfect location to test our new concept designed in partnership with Gensler’s Atlanta office.”

The goal of the store is to inspire shoppers to build their home sanctuary by offering carefully designed and thoughtfully curated displays that are refreshed regularly, according to the company. The look is timeless, and the store is light, bright and open so customers can walk seamlessly between Gabby’s interiors and Summer Classics’ outdoor furniture — just as they would in a home.

“We believe that life’s best moments happen in and around the home, so we put our clients first by providing beautifully designed products and the upmost customer service,” says Bew White, founder and executive chair. “We are confident that the Annapolis Town Centre location will not only bring value to the area but also to the continued success of our fast-growing company.”

The company’s 20th U.S. store will open in Scottsdale, Arizona, in May.
