ESTERO, Fla. (January 8, 2018) – Living rooms and the Chinese zodiac are among January’s highlights at Miromar Design Center, Southwest Florida’s only one-stop shopping destination for the entire home.

Designer-furnished living rooms showcasing a variety of styles and prices offered by the design center’s 45 home furnishings stores are now on display in the main atrium. Created by individual showrooms and interior designer Diane Torissi, the rooms incorporate furniture, area rugs, lighting, art and accessories sold at Miromar Design Center.

“Customers tell us our room displays are very helpful for exploring the many different options available,” said Deborah Hamilton, director of marketing and business development for Miromar Design Center. “Many people buy everything in the room. Other shoppers create their own look by selecting their favorite pieces from multiple displays, blending different design styles and combining luxury brands with budget-conscious items from Furniture Factory Direct.”

Naples author Winslow Bud Johnson returns to Miromar Design Center Thursday, January 10 at 11 a.m. for a second presentation of “What’s Your Sign?” Johnson will discuss the mysteries and origins of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals illustrated by Naples artist Tiffany Chang and appearing in his book, “Chinese Zodiac Art.”
