FORT MYERS, Florida (December 13, 2022) — Folks have been wondering the fate of the Seagate Theory Design Gallery in Boca Grande’s downtown historic district. Located at 411 Park Ave, at 4th street, the 1000-square-foot corner-lot building is just two blocks from the Gulf of Mexico and, like many other islands structures, sustained serious damage from the wrath and surge of hurricane Ian last September.
Well, that question has been answered. In early 2023, the prime island location will re-open with an updated and exciting business model – Theory Design’s first retail showroom. Services you would normally expect to find at Theory Design such as, interior/exterior design, remodeling and renovations and even new construction will be available. But the focus of the new studio will be high-tier furniture and accents…with a twist!
Chris Hensley, Vice-President of Theory Design explained, “The concept we have developed for our new showroom is to offer our customers a curated, eclectic collection of high-end furniture pieces, case goods, artwork, accents and more. The twist is that most items, if not all, will be one-of-a-kind pieces so our clients can purchase them off the floor and have a unique item no-one else will have.” As items are sold, new items will take their place. This way you can shop
our showroom at any given time and find completely different, exciting, offerings. We will serve Boca Grande and the Gasparilla Island communities as well as the Charlotte Harbor market.”
Ruta Menaghlazi, vice-president of design for Theory Design had this to say, ”Our mission is to deliver an exceptional level of design and service for all our clients in Southwest Florida. Now, we can take that a step further by offering a sophisticated coastal boutique shopping experience like no other. The unique items you will find at our Theory Design Showroom will be sourced from venues world-wide. It will be like a treasure hunt every time you visit.”
Currently, Theory Design is remodeling the location with the new showroom front-and-center in the process. The Boca Grande Theory Design Showroom will also serve as a test store for the concept – which will also roll-out with a second, larger location in Naples at a later date.
